IND vs AUS: Which century was Melbourne or Lord’s memorable for Ajinkya Rahane, know the answer of the Indian batsman
In the absence of Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, who gave a historic victory to Team India over Australia’s strength, is being praised. After an embarrassing defeat in Adelaide, Rahane not only united the team, but also won the boxing performance under his captaincy in the Boxing-Day Test match in Melbourne. Rahane appeared in good form with the bat as well as the captaincy and he scored a century in the MCG when the team desperately needed runs. Meanwhile, Rahane has named his Melbourne century the best among his two memorable centuries played in Melbourne and Lord’s.
Cheteshwar Pujara, 33, played a key role in the historic win against Australia
In his interview to Sports Today, Ajinkya Rahane said, ‘Whenever I score runs for me and whenever we win. I think it will be something special for me. Winning the Test match and the series is the first for me and not my own achievement. But, yes the Test century in Melbourne was quite special for me. I had said in Melbourne that a century scored at Lord’s was special for me, but a lot of people told me that a century scored in Melbourne was better than Lord’s. I don’t know how to react to this. But, now I realize that given the situation after the defeat in the Adelaide Test, Melbourne was important for the Test series and yes, I think Melbourne’s innings was very special. ‘
Rahane remembers the bad behavior of Sydney, did not leave the ground due to this
After the embarrassing defeat in Adelaide, the Indian team under the leadership of Ajinkya Rahane made a tremendous comeback and named the Melbourne Test match in their name. Subsequently, Team India was successful in drawing the India Test match on the basis of the combative partnership of Hanuma Vihari and Ravichandran Ashwin in the Sydney Test match. The Indian team, led by Rahane, defeated the Kangaroo team for the first time to win the four-Test series 2–1 on Brisbane’s Gaba ground.
