IND vs NZ 1st Test: Former Indian batter VVS Laxman slams Team India cricket cricketer Ajinkya Rahane shot selection after early dismissal in Kanpur Test

On the first day of the first Test between India and New Zealand, hosts India scored 258 for four in 84 overs till the end of the first day’s play. Ajinkya Rahane is leading India in this match. Ajinkya Rahane failed to capitalize on a good start in the Kanpur Test. He was bowled by Kyle Jamieson for 35 runs. Former India veteran batsman VVS Laxman has questioned his shot selection. Rahane’s performance has been poor for some time now.

He scored just 109 runs in seven innings in England. In a conversation with Star Sports, Laxman said, ‘What did Kyle Jameson do when Ajinkya Rahane came to the crease? He kept throwing short-pitched balls to him. We know that Rahane has only one option against the short-pitched ball, which is to play a pull shot, but it was a poor shot on which he got out. You can play this type of shot in South Africa and Australia, where even if the ball doesn’t have much width due to the bounce, it is fine to play it across the line. But can’t do that in Kanpur where there is no bounce. You should play with straight bat here, you can’t play with angle bat here.
