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

Rahane should no longer be an automatic selection in the starting XI. It's time to give youngsters a chance now since our "SENA" tours are done.  
 

He hasnt been at his best but has improved in last few mnths and next tour is in WI where he shud play and kohli shud be rested so a youngster like vihari gets his chances

 

Pujara has also finally come good overseas.....so lets wait on rahane to. He is a quality player . Already Vijay n rahul have lost their places and kohli workload needs to be managed now ....need some exp as well cant have all youngsters

How long is the rope for someone who averages less than 30 for over 2 years? The so called "SENA" specialist was below average in both England and Australia. Nothing needs to be said about his home record. 


A youngster can't do any worse than this. He will at least be good on home pitches which Rahane is not!

Yup time to move on to younger and hungrier players who don't already look defeated.

He's had his time in the sun and wilted badly, had more than enough chances and as the difficult overseas tours are now over till the next cycle its the perfect time to try out fresh talent.

In one of the other threads, I mentioned that the least expected of the vice-captain Rahane was atleast 3 50s from 4 tests (~7 innings). Is there a mental block for him batting at 5 ?

No, Kohli should not miss a test series overseas even if against WI,  He can miss ODIs and T20s.

Time to move on and blood gill asap.We visit australia in nov 2020 again for 4 tests,5 test tour of england july 2021,South africa in dec 2021.Gill and shaw should be established by then.We SHOULD NOT carry rahane now  and then face a renewed middle order crisis.

 

By the way i think future tours programme between dec 2020 to dec 2021 is insane and a blot on bcci planning.

time to groom youngsters for the 5th spot.it seems there is very low probablity of Rahane improving  to such great heights again.Once, SENA baring ENG was his fortress. Now he has regressed that badly.  If any he should be rotated along with Vihari,Gill etc for his place in the team moving forward. This because he had a dream start in SENA where even the legendary Sachin can't have a claim .So who knows just like Pujara whether he can make a complete turn around or not? One thing for sure,  it is high time  we needs to groom  youngsters for those 2 spots. Rahane  as of now can't be relied at all.

first thing, he should be stripped of vice captaincy.secondly, he doesnt deserve any longer rope

If he was not from Mumbai, he would have lost his spot an year ago after the home season. How can a specialist batsman perform so poorly innings after innings. The 20s and 30s are not good enough.

 

I hope he drops himself from the WI test series if the selectors do not drop him. It's not that we do not have able replacements waiting, there are plenty of youngsters slamming the door and waiting for their chances.

WI tour is the beginning of Test Championship for India so doubt anybody will be rested. Also, WI has been preparing low-scoring greentops which can become a lottery so you need your best bats.

Their has been an improvement in his form ...abhi pichle 2 saal ka kya karna and he is the core group thats how u make players . Not all will give results same times. The next series after that is against SA and he has been always good against them even at home ......and if it doesnt go well then u can look for someone from bangladesh series

 

From now till next test series there is a lot of time, who knws in 6 mnths his game n mental space become more better

Rahane's problems are purely psychological. I think either Kohli's style of leadership doesn't suit him or Kohli does not treat him like a vice captain. Whatever it is, it is purely psychological because he could have easily made 3 test hundreds in these conditions with healthy confidence.

No, we need to start looking right now. Someone who averages less than 30 as a pure batsman in the past 2 years doesn't deserve such a long rope

Are you kidding me, where did you hear that he does not treat him as vice captain. Poeple need stop blaming everyone else other than player himself .Rahane is the problem not anyone else.
