Fans on Twitter slammed the India National Cricket Team senior batter Ajinkya Rahane for his batting failure on his return to vice-captaincy in the first Test of the two-match series against Kraigg Brathwaite-led West Indies National Cricket Team at the Windsor Park, Roseau, Dominica.

Ajinkya Rahane was dropped from the Indian team after the South Africa tour in 2021-22 after he registered a string of low scores. He went back to domestic cricket and performed brilliantly.

After that, he performed exceptionally well for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their title-winning campaign in 2023. He scored runs at an impressive strike rate for the side. Following his heroics in IPL and domestic cricket, Ajinkya Rahane received his India recall for ICC World Test Championship Final against Australia National Cricket Team in the absence of several injured batters.

He emerged as India’s best batter in the WTC final as he scored 89 and 46 across the two innings of the Test match that India lost by a heavy margin. The BCCI management handed back the Test vice-captaincy to Ajinkya Rahane after his performance in WTC final and retained him in the squad for the West Indies series.

However, the batter has failed to impress on return to vice-captaincy in Dominica. He managed to stay out in the middle only for 11 deliveries and scored just 3 runs before pacer Kemar Roach cleaned him up on the first delivery of the 130th over.
