India left Day 3 of the third Test against England at Headingley in a strong position. As the Virat Kohli and co. was at the score of. 215/2 and they were trailing by 139 runs. Also, Test Specialist Cheteshwar Pujara was batting at 91* and Indian captain Virat Kohli was at 45* with Vice Captain Ajinkya Rahane and wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant yet to bat. Fans expected that India will have a strong start but the complete opposite happened.

India started Day 4 of the Leeds Test in the worst possible manner. As India had the bizarre first hour. They lost Cheteshwar Pujara at the overnight score of 91 and Virat Kohli at the score of 55. In both cases, the man responsible for the wickets was Ollie Robinson. Meanwhile, after the good show of Kohli and Pujara, there was a big responsibility on the shoulders of Vice Captain Rahane. However, he delivered nothing for India with the bat as he was dismissed by James Anderson at the score of just 10.

Also, this was 8th time in Test cricket where Rahane lost his wicket against Veteran James Anderson. Notably, this was the consecutive failure of Ajinkya Rahane as he got out on the score of 18 in the first innings and 10 in the second innings.

Indian Test vice-captain has so far crossed the 20 runs mark only one time in this series against England. Also, several questions have been raised against the inclusion of Ajinkya Rahane in playing XI after his continuous failure.

Here is How Twitterati reacted to the poor performance of Ajinkya Rahane in the Headingley Test against England:

India stands on the verge of losing the third Test against England. Notably, Rishabh Pant was also bashed by fans as he scored 2 runs in the first innings and 1 in the second innings.
