Ajinkya Rahane in test cricket from November 1, 2016 - Present (Bad)

Recommended Posts

Innings: 36 
Average: 27.67 
Centuries: 1 

Rahane can’t score at home, nor can he score away from home. So where the hell can he score? A batting average of only 27 for almost 2 years is extremely bad for a specialist batsman. Also, the fact that he has a grand total of just ONE century in 36 times he's gotten to bat is really pathetic as well. He should not be an automatic selection in the playing XI any longer. 

It's the right time to give young batsmen like Vihari, Nair, Bawne & Iyer a go in the middle order, give these guys a lot of chances. We are not achieving anything by sticking with under-performers like Dhawan & Rahane.

Rahane needs to go.  This is beyond a bad patch.

People have said this before . Rahane has hardly had a string of successes even before, he scores in 1 or 2 games and goes missing for the remainder of the series.

 

Had Kohli failed this series like in 2014, people

would be calling Rahane the best or 2nd best bat for his 2 50s.

 

we can’t afford someone so inconsistent in an already fragile batting line up.

Rahane doesn’t need backing in LOIs and still they try to accommodate him as the floater etc and in tests he gets dropped despite being the vice captain when he should have been backed  and now when he should be dropped they will most likely  back him.

 

We can blame selectors, individual players COA BCCI but the team management and captain are fking us a lot more with some boneheaded moves.

Kohli is an exception who performs in all formats, but is it so remarkably difficult for test specialists like Vijay, Pujara, Rahane to give results in even one format where it suits their style of play? 

Rahane won't make runs at home, struggles a hell lot against spin. His silky touch, timing & placement suddenly betrays him. Doesn't have a power game, won't even contribute much to the team's cause. If we get a good performer from Ranjis who replaces him & fails, then there'd be yelling & shouting that how a kal ka chokra has replaced a proven test performer. The young guy would be thrown out & Ajinkya #2018gonnabemyyear Rahane wil be back.

Pujara has waned too. He performs barely in SENA matches.. after the SA series in 2014, he has been inconsistent. He is a Home Bradman though, unlike Rahane.

Pujara is Bradman in Asia. 
Rahane sucks both in Asia & outside Asia. 

No comparison.

Malnourished Rahane has worse stats than Cook in the last few years yet it is the latter who has done the decent thing and retired.

 

Rahane is just a modern day Manjrekar, weak and timid with the smell of defeat lingering around his dopey demeanour.

I agree about the timid part lol

Pujara and Rahane are both short term options as of now, as was Vijay.  But sooner we find adequate replacements  in the form of exceptional  talents we need to phase out them, especially Pujara. With Rahane at least   his record in 3 out of 4 in SENA is still great.

But his record in last 2 years is a bit off.

There are no exceptional talent waiting.  Even in 2000s, only SRT and Viru were exceptional talents and latter still sucked in SENA averaging 33.

What are you on about, if none are exceptional talent then you have like huge Tendulkar like expectations can't think of much problem with Gill, Shaw has a flaw but good thing is both realize that they have problem and working on it.

infact  I  pointed to Dravid, Ganguly,Laxman & Sehwag. We have the current version Sachin  in Kohli.

For instance  it is doubt ful whether to call Dravid so much naturally talented, but his  technique & temperament!!!!!!!!! Similarly Ganguly & Laxman  were like duck into water in ENG & AUS respectively. Sehwag  far far better version of Pujara.So  i basically meant to trace out those sort of batsmen.If the system can provide  4 such players  with in a period of 5 years, why can't it do it again??? But.. of course the effort of trial and error needs to keep on continuing  till such players are found .

what does exceptional talent mean?  Tendulkar was exceptional talent.  Viru was exceptional talent.  Shaw could be an exceptional talent but he has those glaring weaknesses which are hard to overlook.  Regarding Gill, will not judge him at this point.  Let him play some FC cricket first, only then we can say whether he is an exceptional talent or not.

Unorthodox technique does not mean technical flaws.  Shaw is not unorthodox.

Shaw has flaws but he admits it and is working on that he himself knows and is working with Dravid on that
