It’s clear Rahane has been quite annoyed by comments from fans/press in recent times. Conveniently pointing to one knock every time and sounding increasingly smug isn’t helping him. Would like to know what "performing when the team needs" means.
Still drooling over last night 😭
It’s a huge deal for India to open with Pant, use a floater, bowl bowlers in 1-2 over spells. This is a team that prefers to breeze through bilaterals.
Breaking habits & building new ones. Rahul Dravid is here. Sense something special brewing.
From 2006-2011, India’s ODI side had Dhoni, Yuvraj & Raina in the middle-order at around their peak - each averaging on and around 40 & SR of 85+.
And each with a second (bowling/keeping) & third (fielding/captaincy) skill.
Was some luxury!
