Pujara, Rahane

Chhateshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane were once strong players for Team India in Test cricket. But they are now struggling with a lack of form. The Pujara and Rahane flop show, which they have been in the worst form for the past two years, is also going on in South Africa. Even though they are not in form, head coach Rahul Dravid gave both of them a chance in the Centurion Test in the first Test. Both Pujara and Rahane did not fare much better with the bat. However the Johannesburg Test gave them both a chance. But Pujara-Rahane failed again.

Pujara was dismissed for 3 in the first innings of the Johannesburg Test. At the same time Ajinkya Rahane reached the pavilion with the first ball. This made the situation of both of them in the team inaccessible. Former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar answered the question in gestures. Sunil Gavaskar said that now is the time to try the batsmen who are in form.

“After these two wickets, Pujara-Rahane’s next innings will probably be the last chance to defend his Test career. Both of them already have question marks on the place in the Test team and now after this flop show, it seems that they have only one last chance left. ” Gavaskar said.

Rahane’s figures are even worse for the 2020-21 season. In 2020-21, Rahane scored 380 runs in 8 Tests at an average of 29.23. In 2021, Rahane scored 173 runs in 5 Tests at an average of just 19.22. Now this season Rahane has scored 107 runs at an average of 21.40.

Pujara’s batting average for the 2020-21 season was 28.85. In 2021, Pujara averaged 27.77 and now averages only 16.28 in 7 innings in 4 Tests. It is really hard to stand in the Rahane-Pujara team after such statistics. The team has batsmen like Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Priyank Panchal, their form is good. One of Pujara and Rahane is likely to sit outside in the third Test.
