Former Indian fielding coach R Sridhar revealed an attention-grabbing story about Ajinkya Rahane throughout the Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT) 2018-19, calling him not a weak character. Sridhar identified Rahane’s captaincy is underrated and gamers have an opportunity to be heard below his management. Rahane performed his final Check match in opposition to South Africa at Newlands in January 2022.
Ajinkya Rahane led Workforce India within the absence of Kohli and fared properly, profitable 4 of the six Checks he captained between 2017 and 2021. The fitting-handed batter led the staff to victory in opposition to Australia within the Dharamsala Check in 2017 to clinch the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He guided the staff to arguably the greatest-ever Check collection victory in Australia in BGT 2020-21.
Ajinkya Was Not A Weak Character – R Sridhar
Within the e-book ‘Teaching Past – My Days with the Indian Cricket Workforce’, R Sridhar wrote about Ajinkya Rahane’s captaincy and the incident when Prithvi Shaw was hit on the shin pad in a warm-up sport in Drummoyne, Sydney. Sridhar defined that Ajinkya is just not a weak character and that he was seen instantly on the place the place Prithvi was hit.
“Make no mistake; Ajinkya was not a weak character. There was this incident when Prithvi Shaw was fielding at quick leg in a warm-up sport in Drummoyne, Sydney. The batter went for a sweep and Prithvi obtained smacked. As he tried to limp off the park in direction of the dressing room, Ajinkya was rapidly on his case. From his place at slip, he had clearly seen precisely the place Prithvi had been hit, which was on the shin pad,” he wrote in his e-book.
Sridhar revealed that Rahane and Ajinkya instructed Prithvi to return to his quick leg and get into place, and that he wouldn’t tolerate any shenanigans.
“Rahane went as much as him and stated firmly, ‘Don’t take another step. Nobody will substitute you on the sector. I do know nothing’s unsuitable with you, I noticed the ball hit you in your shin pad. Possibly you have been ready for a chance to return inside, however that’s not taking place. Return to quick leg and get into place’. Prithvi knew his bluff had been referred to as and subtly, Ajinkya had instructed the remainder that he would brook no shenanigans. I used to be mightily relieved as I used to be the one slated to go in as substitute as we had solely XI for that sport.”
