‘I will be accused of backing a Mumbai boy’ – Why Sunil Gavaskar denied to draw conclusions on Ajinkya Rahane’s captaincy!!

Everyone was eagerly waiting for the Boxing Day Test between India and Australia at Melbourne Cricket Ground. Today, we’ll shiver some glitters on the blockbusting century made by stand-in captain Ajinkya Rahane. 

India’s captain was highly praise after their bowlers knock out the Australia in the first inning of Test 2 for 195 runs. But on this over the top situation former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar refused to jump over the conclusions about the leadership.

Why did Gavaskar Refused?

The major reason behind his refusal was the common city . Both Rahane and Gavaskar are from the same city Mumbai. In an interview with Sony Sports Network, he joked that if he praise the captaincy of Rahane, then he’ll be accused again for backing a Mumbai boy. 

Rahane is a stand in captain as the stunning Indian skipper Virat Kohli is on the paternity leave. Gavaskar further added, from the last two Test and one ODI captained by Rahane, he noticed that Rahane has a great sense of where the fielders should be kept.

Honestly, many other cricketers including Gavaskar hailed Rahane’s leadership!

Here are the tweets of former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman and Virender Sehwag. https://twitter.com/VVSLaxman281/status/1342729443735826432?s=20 and https://twitter.com/virendersehwag/status/1342713434643656705?s=20 

Moreover, Gavaskar had earlier triggered some controversial points stating ‘different rules for different people’ in the Indian team . He states T Natarajan hadn’t taken paternity leave like Virat Kohli and also point out the way ace spinner R Ashwin is treated!

Team Work!

Like captain other teammates also share some role in both victory and defeat. On Boxing Day Test victory, like Rahane Ashwin’s bowling which was similar to the way Bumrah bowled also plays vital role.

On that day, the three early knock outs of Joe Burns, Matthew Wade and Steve Smith didn’t let India loose the grip over game.

So, did all the crick fans enjoy the Boxing Day Test, share your views on Rahane’s century with us!
