Not everyone gets a second chance to revive their career but exceptions do take place. Ajinkya Rahane who wasn’t even in the contention for test selection will now not only represent India again but will also play in the World Test Championship Finals. The veteran test batter suffered a long streak of low scores before being replaced by Shreyas Iyer. Iyer molded himself well into the role of the number 5 batter. Meanwhile, Ajinkya Rahane went back to playing domestic cricket and scored some runs.

Shreyas Iyer underwent surgery for his back and was unavailable for the WTC Finals. This situation came as a blessing in disguise for Ajinkya Rahane who pulled up his beast mood into the IPL. There were mixed reactions to his selection but most of the cricket experts as well as fans believed that the selection was fair. In a recent chat, former BCCI president Sourav Ganguly also backed Ajinkya Rahane and said that the player will make the most of the chance.

Ajinkya Rahane Will Make Most of the Test Recall: Sourav Ganguly

This is India’s second World Test Championship finals and with players like KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, and Rishabh Pant missing, the role of Ajinkya Rahane gets even more crucial. In the last finals, he was India’s highest run-scorer in the match. “I have always liked him. He has always been a good player for India. Opportunities don’t come every day and if he gets the chance to feature in the playing XI during the WTC final, he will make the most of it. So, I wish him all the best,” Sourav Ganguly said.

In addition to speaking about Ajinkya Rahane, Sourav Ganguly also expressed his opinion on KL Rahul’s hip injury. “It’s unfortunate, I have read that it’s an injury that will keep him out of the IPL as well as the WTC final. Only physios can tell the extent of the injury. Injuries are part of the sport. These boys keep playing all the years, so injuries will happen. So, I wish him a speedy recovery,” Sourav Ganguly said. The conversation that began with talking about Ajinkya Rahane concluded with Ganguly adding that he was hopeful about the Delhi Capitals reaching the playoffs this year.
