A controversial statement is made by Michael Vaughan about Ajinkya Rahane

Just ended is the third test between India and England. The visiting team suffered a humiliating loss after 3 years. India’s batting collapse sealed the match in either inning.

However, England’s confidence would be sky-high. The ball, the track, and the home conditions were ideal for them. English pacers all contributed to breaking India’s solid batting lineup.

Fans and analysts alike have questions about the Indian batsmen. Some players failed to come back in these tests after terrible batting.

Ajinkya Rahane, the vice-captain of the Indian team, is one of these players. Rahane has not been playing well lately. He has played an important role in India’s victories in the past. We are seeing a complete contrast in England. Michael Vaughan has the perfect topic for his sermon.

Michael Vaughan blasts Ajinkya Rahane’s performance

Michael Vaughan is now well known as a spokesperson for cricket. Quite often, he sends controversial tweets and clashes with his Indian counterparts as a result.

In one of the videos, Michael Vaughan was seen talking to Harsha Bhogle. Rahane’s retention in the team clearly shocked Vaughan. After a series of bad hits, a player is generally asked to warm the bench. Rahane, on the other hand, remains on the sidelines and has poor form.

Michael Vaughan also provided examples from the England camp. He said Dominic Sibley and Zak Crawley were expelled for their uninspiring performances. The BCCI should do the same for Ajinkya Rahane.

According to him, he shouldn’t be kept on the team based on his position or past performance. A player must apply the same rules to all players in order to earn a place in the tournament.

Here’s what Vaughan said

Rahane is an issue. And I think when you see these things happening, you have to make changes. England made changes. They got rid of (Zak) Crawley, they got rid of (Dominic) Sibley. I think India needs to make changes. England needs to see a different face or two at the (Kennington) Oval,” Vaughan said.

“I mean Rahane, is he being backed because of his vice-captaincy? Is he being backed because he played some outstanding innings in the last few years? but consistency-wise, he just doesn’t seem to find it,” Vaughan added.

Ajinkya Rahane is participating in the ongoing tests against England

Ajinkya Rahane clearly isn’t having fun with The Willow. His recent figures indicate this is the case. Rahane scored 5, didn’t bat, 1, 61, 18, and 10 points in this series. Except for the 61 runs in the second test, where India won the match, the performances speak for themselves.

Vice-captains have greater responsibilities. Rahane has overcome similar lows in the past. The fourth test begins on 2nd September, so it will be interesting to see if the management continues to trust him or drops him.

In a Press Conference After England’s Defeat, Virat Kohli Controls His Frustration

India lost the third Test against England at Headingley. The visitors won brilliantly at Lord’s. Nevertheless, this match was not the game, and the Indian side had no answer for their opponents. Kohli and co. couldn’t handle the challenges they faced. From the very beginning, after Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bat, it was apparent.

Being out for just 78 runs on the very first day of a Test match is always unfortunate. It can also be frustrating to go into a bowling match and not pick up wickets. As Team India struggled with this issue throughout the Test, England came out to bowl a second time once they had completed their innings. The visitors lost by an innings and 76 runs.

How Virat Kohli Kept His Cool After The England Loss

India was easily defeated in this game. Virat Kohli and his team did not address the opposition’s questions. During the press conference following the game, something similar was seen. The Indian skipper appeared calm and relaxed. He wasn’t as arrogant as usual. It was a crushing defeat for the team.

As Joe Root had done, Virat Kohli also accepted responsibility for his mistake after the last Test match. In some cases, the media went too far when asking questions, so he was analyzing a few things further.

King Kohli kept his cool and his video was shared on social media platforms like Twitter. Below is the Tweet –

As the series stands at 1-1 heading into the fourth test against England, what are Team India’s next steps?

The Indians should ignore this match and focus on the two games to come. If they dwell too much on the past and fail to address the issues at hand, they will lose this series. It has happened in the past as well. To compete against England, Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri will need to get the team in the right frame of mind.

This is more than just a normal series. Wars are raging! As a result, teams will want to prove their worth to their fans, who will have high expectations of them. It would be rather embarrassing for either side to lose from here on. Surely they won’t want to lose.

India’s fans will be hoping that Team India delivers when it counts. Kohli will also work on improving his own form. He managed to score some runs in the second innings at Headingley. As a result, he should be able to carry it forward into his future games. Let’s see what Team India does next!
