The Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane was not in the best of form for the last 2 years but the West Indian tour has turned the tide completely into his favour. He not only contributed well in the team’s victory but he was also the second highest scorer of the test series.
The Mumbai batsman scored 271 runs in the two test match series with an average of 90.33. The highest scorer of the series was Hanuma Vihari who scored 289 runs with an average of 96.33.
The Indian team won both the test matches comfortably; the first test match was won by a huge margin of 318 runs while in the second test match, India defeated WI by 257 runs.
What makes this victory more special is the fact that India has attained the top spot in the International test championship by scoring 120 points followed by New Zealand which is sitting at the second spot with 60 points.
This was definitely a great moment for the team as well as for Ajinkya Rahane who took to his social media account and posted a photo of himself with the caption, “Nothing better than contributing to team’s win. Delighted to win the series ✌🏻”

Ajinkya’s teammate and friend Ravichandran Ashwin tried to troll him as he tweeted, “Are you up jinx?? Coffee??”

R Ashwin has been a very important part of team India for a long time but he was not included in the playing eleven during the West Indies tour as Ravindra Jadeja was preferred over him. However, the decision of not including R Ashwin in the team was slammed by many as Ashwin had a wonderful record against West Indies.
All the best to team India for the series against South Africa which will be played in India!
