Ajinkya Rahane, who was stuck with quarantine with the rest of the Indian squad ahead of the series against Australia, found another way to stay connected to the game even on off days.
The Indian Test vice-captain shared a video of himself batting in his hotel room and captioned the post, “Off day from the nets means I find other ways to keep batting. Can’t stay away from my bat for too long. Sorry neighbours.”
Soon after the video was posted, his teammate Shikhar Dhawan reacted to the caption and trolled Rahane saying what is the point of this practice when he slammed 50 in practice the day before, “Bhai maan gaye ek din pahle practice match khela tha. Usme tune 50 mare, yeh prac se kya fayda?? Beti ko khila room pe bhai,” commented Dhawan.
