The upcoming Indian Premier League 2019 is not only about winning the trophy for certain players but also to showcase their talent and make it as a platform to get a place in the Indian National Cricket Team. One such player is Rajasthan Royals’ Ajinkya Rahane, who wants to perform in IPL 2019 at any cost.
Rahane has been out from the team despite having good ODI numbers in his kitty. He always performed well for the team whenever he was given chances but unfortunately, ended up on the wrong side. However, with IPL 2019, he wants to make a mark of his own.
It is important to express yourself – Ajinkya Rahane
Rahane highlighted the fact that it is important to look after the Rajasthan Royals rather than thinking the way to ahead. Further, he added that it is all about playing cricket irrespective of where or for whom, you are playing the game.
”The approach won’t be any different with the World Cup spot looming because at the end you are playing cricket, be it the IPL or any other tournament. You have to score runs and do well for the team. The most important thing will be to think about the Rajasthan Royals rather than thinking too much about the road ahead,” he said.
We should not take any undue pressure:
Speaking of his chances in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019, Rahane strongly believes that a good season with the bat in IPL will help him get a place in the grand event. Anjikya is sure that he is going to play positive cricket in the upcoming season.
”See, if I do well in the IPL, the World Cup (slot) will automatically come. I feel it is important to express yourself and not take any undue pressure thinking about things which aren’t in your control. The focus is the IPL,” he said.
Ajinkya Rahane has always been in the radar for the selection but something or the other put himself away from the team. As Rahane said, a good show in IPL 2019, would open gates for him in the Indian team, especially, with number 4 being a problem for India.
