IND vs AUS: Ajinkya Rahane Wins Social Media For His Gesture After Getting Run Out

Ajinkya Rahane displayed great character while leading the Indian side in the absence of Virat Kohli. 32-year-old Rahane fabricated a decisive 112 runs off 223 balls in the second Test against Australia in Melbourne. The deputy skipper could have harmed the Australians more if not for his unlucky run out in the first innings. Nevertheless, even the run-out couldn’t hamper Rahane’s spirit. Rahane, while walking towards the pitch, was seen motivating Ravindra Jadeja to bolster India’s innings forward. Rahane’s heroic gestures made him an internet gem within no time.

IND vs AUS: Rahane falls short off the crease

One can seemingly say that Ravindra Jadeja’s hurry to reach his half-century costed India Ajinkya Rahane’s wicket. Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja started Day 3 in a timely fashion against the Australians. Both the batsmen looked set on the pitch and were looking keen to hand India a decent lead against the hosts.

Just then stand-in skipper Rahane fell prey to an avoidable run out earlier in the day. Jadeja, who was batting on 49, placed Nathan Lyon’s ball on the offside and tried taking a quick single. To Rahane’s despair, the skipper failed to make it to the other end by inches. Nevertheless, the skipper didn’t lose spirit as he patted Ravindra Jadeja to carry India’s innings forward.
