‘Thank you Pujara and Rahane’, after the poor performance, the fans on Twitter insulted like this


New Delhi: On the first day of the second Test against South Africa being played in Johannesburg, the Indian team was bundled out for just 202 runs in the first innings. In this match, apart from KL Rahul, who is captaining Team India, no Indian batsman could touch the 50-run mark. Regular captain Virat Kohli was not playing in this match. In the absence of Virat Kohli, the entire responsibility was on the shoulders of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, but both these batsmen left Team India in the middle and kept walking.

Fans on Twitter did such a blatant insult

Cheteshwar Pujara was dismissed for 3 runs and after that Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed for zero on the very first ball. Team India’s middle order was completely shattered as soon as Pujara and Rahane were dismissed. After this poor performance of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane, the fans on Twitter insulted both these batsmen. Pujara and Rahane have been getting a chance for a long time even after their poor performance, but both these batsmen have proved to be flops. In such a situation, this South Africa tour can prove to be the last tour of the career of both these batsmen.

Pujara’s figure from ‘3’ is 36

Let us inform that in this match, Cheteshwar Pujara was dismissed after scoring 3 runs in 33 balls. A strange coincidence happened during this innings of Cheteshwar Pujara’s 3 runs. Say that they have a figure of 3 to 36, then it will not be wrong. In fact, 33-year-old Pujara came out to bat at number three in the first innings of the Johannesburg Test and played 33 balls and scored 3 runs before being dismissed. That is, he got stuck in the turn of 3. The date of start of Johannesburg Test is also 3. For Pujara, the current Test series against South Africa has not gone well so far. He scored 16 runs in both the innings of the Centurion Test. In the first innings, he could not even open the account. A big innings was expected from him in Johannesburg. But once again the wall of Team India collapsed and he got out after scoring just 3 runs in 33 balls. Talking about the average of Indian batsmen who have played 10 innings since 2020, Cheteshwar Pujara is at 8th position. He has scored runs at an average of 25.52 during this period. The average of Ravindra Jadeja (27) has also been better than him. Pujara has not played a bat since last year’s brilliant innings in the Sydney Test in Australia. In the last one year, Pujara has scored 705 runs in 15 Tests at an average of 27. During this 91 has been his best score.

Ajinkya Rahane made a shameful record

On one hand Pujara who played a lot of balls as usual but scored only 3 runs and kept on walking. After this, on the very next ball, Ajinkya Rahane left for the pavilion without giving any trouble to the scorer. Ajinkya Rahane got out for 0. Rahane was dismissed for a golden duck for the first time in his Test career. Rahane played his first Test match for India in the year 2013 and since then he has been a regular member of the Test team. It is not that he has not been dismissed for zero during his Test career, but he got out for the first time on the very first ball of the golden duck. Rahane has so far lost his wicket in Tests for a total of 10 times including this.

Pujara and Rahane’s career nearing end

Ajinkya Rahane is playing his 81st Test match against South Africa at the Wanderers ground and after 136 innings of these matches, ie in the 137th innings, he was out on a golden duck. In the second Test against the Proteas, he handed his catch to Keegan Pietersen on the very first ball of Duane Oliver. When Rahane came to bat, the Indian team had lost two wickets for 49 runs in the first innings, but after his dismissal in this way, Team India came under further pressure. The poor form of these two players can now force the team management to take a big decision.
