Former cricketer explained Rahane in two words
Will have to do this work to stay in the team

New Delhi. Former Indian team opener Wasim Jaffer believes that the current vice-captain of the Blue Team, Ajinkya Rahane, will have to score consecutive runs to remain in the Test team. The 35-year-old veteran batsman made a comeback to the Indian Test team on the back of a stellar performance in this year’s IPL and made a strong impression in the World Test Championship final against Australia earlier this year.

However, he failed to make an impact in both his innings on the West Indies tour. Due to which once again questions have started to arise on his continuity. Talking about him, the former cricketer, who played 31 Test matches for India, said, ‘Rahane will have to show consistency in his game, which has been his problem. He may have played 80-90 Tests but consistency has been an issue with him. He will have to overcome this because after the departure of Rohit Sharma, he is a good captaincy option for India.

Talking further, the 45-year-old former cricketer said, ‘After being all out for 36 runs in Australia, the Indian team had performed brilliantly under his leadership. He scored a century in Melbourne… If his form had remained the same, he would have been the next Test captain. Jaffer said that it would be difficult for Cheteshwar Pujara to make a comeback in the Test team as the focus would be on young players in the 2023-25 ​​World Test Championship cycle.

The former India opener said, ‘As far as Pujara is concerned, I think it will be a bit difficult to move forward. You also need to start watching the new players boys for the next World Test Championship cycle. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant will come back. Yashasvi Jaiswal has been successful. Gill will play in all three formats. I think it will be difficult for Pujara to make a comeback. (with language input)
