Fans overjoyed at Rahane’s Test comeback; Said, ‘God bless you, but…’
The final of the World Test Championship 2023 will be played at England’s K Oval ground. This match will be played between India vs Australia from 7th to 11th June. Before this match, the Board of Control for Cricket in India i.e. BCCI has announced the 15 member squad. Experienced batsman Ajinkya Rahane has also been given a place in this team. Rahane has managed to get a place in the Indian team after almost 15 months. He was out of the Indian team from January 2022. The joy of the fans has skyrocketed due to Rahane’s return to the team.
Veteran batsman Ajinkya Rahane is 34 years old and has been a key part of the Indian Test team for the past decade. Poor performances kept him out for almost a year. However, he started scoring runs in domestic cricket and then in the IPL. Rahane has finally got his place back in the team. Now, from cricket connoisseurs to fans, many are reacting strongly to his comeback.

Famous sports journalist and commentator Harsha Bhogle also made important tweets. In it, he wrote, “I was thinking about India’s team for the WTC finals and was chatting with people. Any way I look at it, I was zero on this team. This suggests that there were not many options. Rahane’s return is the key talking point. He looks in good form, no slogging in T20s, decent top-class season, plenty of experience. Looks like a solo pick but hopefully, it will be a powerful return.”
I had been thinking, and chatting to people, about India’s squad for the WTC Final. And whichever way I looked at it, I was zeroing in on this team. That suggests there weren’t too many choices. The only real talking point is the return of Rahane. Looks in good form, not slogging…
