Remember what happened when Ajinkya Rahane wasn’t selected in the initial stages of India’s previous Tour to South Africa? Well, they certainly missed him and paid the price. When he was back things certainly looked different from India. Such has been Rahane’s dominance overseas.
While the right-handed batsman has been dropped from the One Day International Team, and out of question in the T20 side, it would be fair to assume that he will find his place in the Test Squad right from the word go this time around. Having said that, you never know with Rahane as he has certainly never got what he has deserved.
There is good news though in the form of some light at the end of the tunnel for all those who admire Rahane. Yesterday was Rahane’s birthday and Virat Kohli via the micro-blogging site Twitter dropped an indirect hint of Rahane being a part of the playing XI.
Kohli via Twitter termed Rahane as one of the best overseas batsmen India has and while he wishes ‘Jinx’ a ‘Very Happy Birthday’ he also hoped that he could keep on playing those crucial knocks like he always has been. Cric Crak will like to wish ‘More Power’ to Rahane and also all the luck to Virat Kohli and his men for the upcoming much-anticipated tour to England.
