The final match of the ICC World Test Championship between India and New Zealand is taking place in Southampton. The sixth day of the Test was named after the Kiwi team. India lost 5 wickets in the second innings till lunch time. Indian captain Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane returned to the pavilion cheaply. Rahane, after scoring 15, continued with Trent Boult’s BJ Watling catching him. Fans have trolled Rahane severely for not showing anything special with the bat at the WTC. Rahane has been cast as India’s deputy and has been criticized by fans as Virat Kohli’s flop.
The fan shared a reminder of Ajinkya Rahane’s performance, comparing her performance as a hero and Virat Kohli. Rahane was in good form in the first innings of the WTC Final and played a spectacular 49 runs. However, Rahane couldn’t do much in the second inning and returned to the pavilion after scoring just 15 runs. Rahane captained the tour of Australia in the absence of Virat Kohli and scored a spectacular century at the Melbourne Stadium. At the same time, his performance in the rest of the game was even better.
