Rahane not exasperated about missing out on hundred

India’s start in the ICC World Test Championship wasn’t ideal as the top order collapsed after being invited to bat first. Losing three quick wickets, India were reeling at 25-3 before Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane showed his prowess and rescued the men in blue from a precarious position which was later used by their bowlers to gain a strong position.  

First with Lokesh Rahul and then with Hanuma Vihari, the Test specialist shared two fifty-run stands to help India achieve a decent position in the first innings of the ongoing Antigua Test. The 31-year old scored a gritty half-century in tough circumstances and got dismissed at 81 missing out on a Test century by 19 runs.

However, Rahane has no regrets to be unable to achieve a personal milestone. Reflecting on his batting performance, the Maharashtra born said that I’m not a selfish guy to only think about myself. He added that the wicket was tricky so he was delighted to get some crucial runs to install India in a better position than before. With a lot of action, the Test match is promising to become a thrilling affair.
