Ajinkya Rahane Becomes Internet’s New Hero After Historic Win In Boxing Day Test In INDvsAUS

The Indian cricket team made history under the leadership of Ajinkya Rahane by winning the Boxing Day test match against Australia by 8 wickets. Ajinkya Rahane has led from the front and the calm manner in which he led the team has made every cricket lover his fan. In fact, it won’t be wrong to say that the Indian social media platforms are flooded with posts praising him and declaring him the new Internet hero.

Many cricketing experts gave the Indian team no chance to win the second test match as India’s star batsman and skipper Virat Kohli and pacer Mohammad Shami were not part of the squad. While Virat is on the paternity leave as he wants to be with his wife Anushka Sharma during the birth of their first child, Shami has fractured his arm.

What made the cricketing experts more doubtful was the performance of team India in the second innings of the first test match in which the Indian squad crumbled at their lowest total of 36. However, Ajinkya Rahane didn’t let the past performance affect him and his teammates; he played a superb innings of 112 in the first innings and scored 27 runs in the second innings. The team also showed a great fighting spirit under their new skipper and gave their best in all the departments whether it was batting, bowling or fielding. The Indian bowlers bowled in an amazing manner and restricted the hosts at 195 in the first innings and at 200 in the second innings.

The Indian fans were still a little afraid when India got the target of 70 to chase in the second innings because it was just 10 days ago that the Indian team scored its lowest total in the test matches. What made them scared was the dismissals of Mayank Agarwal and Cheteshwar Pujara but Ajinkya along with Shubman Gill ensured that the team didn’t lose the track and scored the winning run for India.

The Indian cricket fans were already very happy with Ajinkya Rahane because of the gesture that he showed towards Ravindra Jadeja after he got run out in the first innings and with this victory, he has become a favourite of many Indian cricket lovers now.

Rahane is being showered with love for not just his calm and cool attitude but also for the correct decisions he made on the field as well as for rotating the bowlers in a proper manner after Umesh Yadav got injured. Ajinkya Rahane has been adjudged as the Player of the Match for his gutsy innings and this is certainly a tight slap on the faces of those who were claiming that Australia would clean sweep the series.

This is how people showered praises on Ajinkya Rahane for the amazing performance:
