No, it’s no surprise that Ajinkya Rahane is back in the Test after spending 15 months in the WTC final. It’s not because she’s participating in IPL 2023 for CSK. Cricket 2023 match between Kolkata Knights and Chennai Super Kings at Kolkata Eden on Sunday, 23 April 2023. Australia went as expected. No, it’s no surprise that Ajinkya Rahane is back in the Tests after 15 months. Because he scored 11 six points for the Chennai Super Kings and scored nearly 200 laps in five games in IPL 2023. Ajinkya Rahane’s would have had a hard time getting the trophy for India’s WTC final squad, especially after being fired from the BCCI Central contract.
He ruled Mumbai with several forts – one against Assam’s weak bowling attack. But his last two years against Hyderabad have been fantastic. He has scored 2, 51, 42, 11, 44, 14, 35, 24 and 16 points in other games. He has not had a fire season like Mayank Agarwal or Sarfaraz Khan.
Reduced to IPL 2023, Rahane wore the Chennai Super Kings jersey for the first time. His career in a crucial match against the Mumbai Indians. He only hit 27 balls 61, walked away with the prize man and never looked back.
In the next two games against RR and RCB, Rahane once again demonstrated his unprecedented form, scoring 31 and 37 laps respectively. In CSK’s last game against KKR, he took just 29 balls, including five spectacular sixes, to complete their 71-game unbeaten streak. Is this Rahane’s rebirth? Partly because Rahane’s best batting average before the IPL season was 137.
But five T20 hits were enough to eliminate Rahane’s first loss from the red ball in nearly three years as battering Kill air Test vice captain.
This is a combination of Rahane’s experience and the injury to the first hitter.
