Former India opener Gautam Gambhir has said that it will be difficult for Ajinkya Rahane to earn a place in the Indian playing XI for the South Africa tour. With poor form in recent times, hopes of getting a place in the final squad for Rahane have been dashed. Rahane has scored just two half-centuries since he scored a century against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in December last year.

He has averaged just 20 in the last 29 innings. Rahane, who has played 12 Tests so far in 2021, averages 19.57. He is currently facing the worst situation in his career. His normal average in 2017 was 34.62 while in 2018 it was 30.66. However, Rahane averaged 71.33 in 2019.

Rahane is currently facing tough conditions. To be honest, I think it will be difficult for Ajinkya Rahane to get a place in Playing XI, ”Gambhir told Star Sports. Shreyas Iyer is his rival. No one may like Iyer dropping him due to recent appearances. At the same time, Hanuma Vihari is doing very well. ” Said Gautam.

Former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar has come out in support of Rahane due to his “experience” in foreign conditions. “It would be good to get a place in Ajinkya Rahane’s tour of South Africa … because you definitely need experience there. It is questionable whether he will play in the first Test. That Test match will be crucial for him if he plays. ” Gautam Gambhir explained.
