Aakash Chopra praises saying Ajinkya Rahane batted extremely well

World test championship

Aakash Chopra says that Ajinkya Rahane has made a slight change in his technique.

“Ajinkya Rahane has made a slight change in his technique. Both his feet stay within the crease, he is playing extremely late, which is a good thing, but he is not going forward at all. I am 50-50 with that, I am not 100% convinced that it is the right way to play. That is one way to play and then there is Virat Kohli’s way, who got a wicket-taking ball for sure but could it have been negotiated better? Marnus Labuschagne also does like that – the front-foot commitment. That is why probably he gets hit a lot. You might be able to negotiate that ball better if you play it on the back foot,”. Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube channel, Cricket ki Chaupal.

He further added that

“Ajinkya Rahane batted extremely well. Got out in the end for sure, got a life as well. If you see before that too, there were two lbw decisions where Pat Cummins overstepped, one was Rahane and the other was Shardul. You saved the follow-on, and I feel they were anyway not going to enforce it.” Aakash Chopra added further.

The Oval’s final day of the World Test Championship Final is going to be exciting for the fans. All the three results are possible on Day 5. Virat Kohli and Rahane are batted well in the last session yesterday. If India goes wicketless in the first session, India can have a win. Aakash Chopra said that the Aussies may not have enforced the follow-on even if they got the opportunity to do so. However, Rahane and Shardul Thakur made sure that they won’t give that chance to the Australian Team. On day 5, India need 280 runs to win WTC Mace.
