Ajinkya Rahane | Wasim Jaffer’s big statement about Ajinkya Rahane, said- ‘This work will have to be done to stay in the team’

Mumbai: Indian team batsman Ajinkya Rahane has been entrusted with the responsibility of vice-captain of the team in the West Indies tour. At the same time, now former Indian opener Wasim Jaffer has given a statement regarding Ajinkya Rahane. He said that, Ajinkya Rahane will have to score runs continuously to remain in the Test team. Ajinkya Rahane showed excellent performance in IPL this year. On this basis, he was included in the team for the West Indies tour. Apart from this, he made a strong impression in the World Test Championship final against Australia earlier this year. However, he failed to make an impact in both his innings on the West Indies tour, which once again raised questions over his consistency. Wasim Jaffe said, “Rahane will have to show consistency in his game, which has been his problem. He may have played 80-90 Tests (84) but consistency has been an issue with him. He has to overcome it because he is a good captaincy option for India after Rohit Sharma’s departure. Read this too Jaffer said, “After being all out for 36 runs in Australia, the Indian team performed brilliantly under his leadership. He scored a century in Melbourne. If his form had remained the same, he would have been the next Test captain.” Jaffer further said a big thing about Cheteshwar Pujara. It will also be difficult for Pujara to make a comeback into the Test team as the 2023-25 ​​World Test Championship cycle will keep an eye on young players, he added. The former India opener said, “As far as Pujara is concerned, I think it will be a bit difficult to move forward. You also need to start watching the new players boys for the next World Test Championship cycle. Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant will be back. Yashasvi Jaiswal has been successful. (Shubman) Gill will play in all three formats. I think it will be difficult for Pujara to make a comeback.
