“Aate Hi Shuru”- Twitter Reacts As Ajinkya Rahane Scores A Century Against Saurashtra In Ranji Trophy

On Day 1 of the Ranji Trophy 2022, veteran batter Ajinkya Rahane blasted a century for Mumbai against Saurashtra. At the end of day’s play, Rahane was unbeaten at 108 runs with 14 fours and 2 sixes. Rahane along with Sarfraz Khan added unbeaten 219 runs for the fourth wicket.

After a string of lacklustre performances with the bat, Ajinkya Rahane’s place in the Indian Test team has been questioned by cricket experts and fans since past few months. As a senior player, Rahane’s average of 20.83 in 2021, was a major source of concern for the Indian team in Test Cricket. Rahane was also relieved of his Test vice-captaincy duties ahead of India’s tour of South Africa 2021-22, and Rohit Sharma was appointed in his place.

Many have assumed that Ajinkya Rahane’s opportunity in South Africa was his last, and that he would no longer be a member of India’s Test squad. However, this first-class century has come at the right time and might earn him a call-up for the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka in March. This innings might have also helped him regain some confidence with the bat.

Here’s How Twitter Reacted To Ajinkya Rahane coming back to form:

Rahane and Pujara are very good players: Sourav Ganguly

Cheteshwar Pujara, who is in the opposite team of Rahane in the ongoing match, would also be hoping to score some runs. Earlier this month, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly, had stated that Rahane and Pujara should prove themselves in the Ranji Trophy.

“Yeah, they are very good players. Hopefully, they will go back to Ranji Trophy and score a lot of runs, which I am sure they will.”, Ganguly had said during an interview with Sportstar.
