Rahane’s Heart-Winning Gesture To Ravindra Jadeja After Run-Out Earns Him Accolades On Twitter


Rahane’s Heart-Winning Gesture To Ravindra Jadeja After Run-Out Earns Him Accolades On Twitter

Ajinkya Rahane, the Indian cricketer who is fulfilling the responsibility of the skipper in the absence of Virat Kohli has certainly led from the front in the Boxing Day test match against Australia which is being played at Melbourne Cricket Ground. In the first innings, the Indian team got all out on the score of 326 and Ajinkya Rahane played a beautiful innings of 112 runs which included 12 boundaries. Rahane along with Ravindra Jadeja added 121 runs in partnership before getting run out for the first time in his test career.

However, what Ajinkya Rahane did after getting run out was something that made every cricket fan respect and applause him more. When Ravindra Jadeja was just one run away from his half-century, he played a defensive shot on the balling of Nathan Lyon. Jadeja made a call for run which was fulfilled by Rahane and he didn’t seem to be in much trouble as his bat was on the crease when the ball hit the stump but unfortunately Rahane was given out even after taking DRS.

This certainly left Jadeja upset as it was he who made the call but before leaving the ground, Rahane went to him and tapped him, gestured him that the Indian innings is not over yet and he should play some good cricket before coming back to the pavilion.

Jadeja got out at 57 and soon the Indian team was back in pavilion with 326 on the board.

The cricket lovers were quite impressed with Ajinkya Rahane’s sportsmanship and praised him whole-heartedly on the micro-blogging site Twitter. Here are some of the selected reactions:
















As of now, the Aussies have lost their 6 wickets at the score of 133 and have taken the lead of 2 runs. It would be interesting to see what target the Australian team will give to the Indians and how the Indian batsmen will perform in the second innings.

Well, India has an upper hand at the moment but do you think that they will be able to win this test match?
