Ajinkya Rahane took the captain’s knock in his second test match against Australia. India lost 3 batters cheaply on day 2 at the Melbourne cricket ground. Hanuma Vihari stayed around for a handy knock, but he didn’t play for a long time. Rahane put the pressure on leading India to lead one inning. And when he needed someone to make a big inning for India, Rahane stepped up to score 100 goals.
During 112 innings, Rahane was very cautious at first, but after Day 2’s Tea, he fell into the groove and started scoring freely. The partnership with Ravindra Jadeja provided a platform for India to take a significant lead in the second test. He was one of his special knocks in test cricket as he rescued India from an unstable position. But does he rank 112 knocks best on MCG? Rahane was asked the same question after a Day 3 match, and he claimed that the 100 matches against England at Lord’s were his most special question.

‘It was really special. There is always a century. Still, I think my back against England in Lord’s is my best. ‘, Rahane said after the match.
Australia played six games with 133 on the third day of the Boxing Day test at the magnificent Melbourne cricket ground. To expel the ghosts bowling out with the bottom 36 of the series opening game, visitors put 326 on the board in response to a total of 195 in one inning in Australia, leading to the lead with 131 points.
Australia was ahead by only two points after the game ended.
“This game is not over yet. We still need to get four more turnstiles,” said Indian captain Ajinkya Rahane, who created the atmosphere of the side with 100 people on the second day, told broadcaster Sony Network at the end of the match.
“Credit to the bowlers, they bowled in the right area,” he added.
