Ajinkya Rahane is under tremendous pressure
Ajinkya Rahane is under tremendous pressure to play a big innings at Centurion’s SuperSport Park as he could be out of the playing 11 in the next match if he fails to impress the team management.
Rahane scored 40 * on the first day
When Ajinkya Rahane came to bat at No. 5 on the first day of the Centurion Test, his forehead was bruised. Playing a restrained innings, he scored 40 * off 61 balls on the first day.
Rahane was roaring?
A video from the first day of the Boxing Day Test is going viral, with Ajinkya Rahane seen focusing on the ball. He kept saying, ‘Look at the ball,’ meaning ‘Look at the ball.’
Rahane reminds me to watch the ball as soon as the bowler is run up and reminds me of how cruel cricket can be for such an experienced man. pic.twitter.com/3HKhVgMMFc

Important opportunity for Ajinkya Rahane
Ajinkya Rahane has been given preference over Shreyas Iyer and Hanuma Bihari in the first Test against South Africa. It is believed that coach Rahul Dravid wanted to give him another chance.
