New Delhi. Indian Test team co-captain Ajinkya Rahane has continued her disappointing performance in the Test series against England. He was dismissed for 0 in the second innings of the Oval Test. Chris Oakes made him his victim. Oakes first lbw out Jadeja. In the same over Oaks made a strong lbw appeal against Rahane and the umpire declared him out. After that, the Indian co-captain took the DRS, where the ball was seen to pass over the stumps. This gave Rahane a big life. However, Rahane failed to capitalize on the opportunity and Oaks walked zero in the next over. Rahane was dismissed for 0 for the third time at the Oval.
Rahane managed just 109 runs (5, 1, 61, 18, 10, 14, 0) in 7 innings of the series. He scored 1 in the second innings of the Lord’s Test. Since then he has not been able to score big in the series. It also affected his Test average. Rahane’s batting average has dropped below 0 since the home series (59 Tests) against South Africa in 2015. Team India has had to endure the blow of his run in the middle order several times during the England tour.
Fans were outraged when Rahane was dismissed for zero
Rahane made a good start to the series a few times but could not turn it into a big innings. For this reason, as soon as he was run out for zero at the Oval, fans got angry at him and started trolling him on Twitter and a flood of memes appeared against him.
One user wrote – Rahane’s Test career is returning to the pavilion. If Rahane gets another chance, it will be unfair to players like Karun Nair.
Another user wrote that at least half a century was needed from Rahane. Really frustrating. The time has come to give a chance to Hanuma Bihari or Mayank Agarwal at number five in India and leave Rahane for the sake of God.

Jaffa also raised questions about Rahane
Earlier, former Indian opener Wasim Zafar also commented on Rahane’s performance in a video uploaded on his YouTube channel. He believed that a batsman should not lose his wicket if he played at least one wrong shot. Rahane’s batting is disappointing. In most cases, he is catching behind the wicket. He has to play big innings because the next few Tests are important for the team.
