Ajinkya Rahane on World Test Championship final selection

Ajinkya Rahane, who bats in the middle order, hasn’t ruled out returning to the Indian Test team for the ICC World Test Championship final, but he said there was “still a long way to go” before that could happen.

Ajinkya Rahane’s incredible 19-ball half-century On Saturday night, he played in his first Indian Premier League match for Chennai Super Kings against Mumbai Indians. Has put him back in the running for a Test recall before the WTC final in England in June.

Rahane was kicked out of the Test team and, as a result, lost his annual contract with BCCI. He played his last Test in South Africa in January 2022.

Shreyas Iyer took his place on the Test team. Iyer isn’t sure if he’ll be able to play in the WTC final in June because he hurt his back in the IPL 2023.

Rahane, on the other hand, had a good time at the Wankhede with a 27-ball 61 from No. 3, but he said he was taking it one game at a time.

“WTC still has a long way to go,” “At the press conference after the IPL game, Rahane said.

“Today, I didn’t know where I was in the eleven, and I only found out right before the toss. For me, it’s about staying in the moment and playing one game at a time.”

“Everything is possible. I won’t give up ever. For me, it’s all about playing with fun and enthusiasm “Rahane added.

In early June, at The Oval, India will play Australia in the final of the ICC World Test Championship.
