Lately, Indian Batsman, Ajinkya Rahane who led the Indian team to a historic win against Australia last year has been facing a lot of criticism regarding the South Africa Test series for being inconsistent. He is receiving comments like, his career is over and he should not be a part of the Test team.
Rahane in an interview with Boria Majumdar from Revsportz said that he just smiles at all the comments that he has been receiving lately. He believes that people who know the sport won’t talk like that and would rather talk sensibly. Rahane personally feels that he doesn’t want to involve so deep in this matter. For him, the Red ball cricket that he played in Australia last year was a very special moment for him.
The 33-year-old feels that there is no need for him to justify his contribution to the team. He believes that he didn’t get the credit for the decisions that he made on-field and in the dressing room during the Australia Test series, but the important thing for Rahane was that they emerged victorious in the series.
Rahane firmly believes in the decisions that he made on the ground despite the media interpreting post-match that it was not his decision, taking away all the credit from him.
When asked Rahane was confident about his batting, he replied, “Yes, I m confident about my own ability, I m batting really well and I still believe that I have good cricket left in me”.
Toast of the nation after leading India to one of our best series wins in Aus. Today people are calling for his head. How is @ajinkyarahane88 dealing with it? Does he believe he has cricket left in him? How imp is Ranji Trophy? #Promo #BackstageWithBoria Show 2pm @AgeasFederal pic.twitter.com/nbbdsFiLa8
