rahane struggled vs spin

The Indian cricket team is probably going through one of the best phases in their cricket history when it comes to sheer dominance and outstanding form. The team is full of immensely talented individuals and has a perfect mix of senior and junior players providing the ideal balance required.

The extra-ordinary batting depth of the Indian line-up has been a nightmare for every opponent they have faced and moreover when they are in form. Skipper Virat Kohli has led by example in both the limited overs and the Test formats, and his gang has supported him brilliantly. From Shikhar Dhawan to Rohit Sharma, from Murali Vijay to Lokesh Rahul, from MS Dhoni to Hardik Pandya, everyone has been among a plethora of runs except for one.

Mumbai born batsman Ajinkya Rahane has been struggling with his form lately, and we are getting an example of the same in the ongoing Test series against Sri Lanka. With the 3rd Test taking place at the Feroz Shah Kotla, Rahane has failed to deliver once again. With scores of 9 and 10 in the first and the second innings respectively the batsman seems to be out of confidence. Rahane who is considered a perfect fit for the red ball game is in danger of losing his spot.

The first Test at the Eden Gardens Kolkata saw Rahane score four runs in the first innings while he went back for a duck in the second. As far as the Nagpur Test was concerned he only contributed two runs in India’s gigantic total of 610 runs. Things certainly do not look good for the 29-year-old considering the robust competition in the Indian side. However, the batsman will look to get his act correct as soon as possible to save his berth in the team. Here are some of the tweets directed towards Rahane’s poor form:
