It wasn’t the first time in the WTC final, it was definitely not the first time when Ajinkya Rahane has been strangled down the leg-side by a pacer. Twitter was mightily disappointed with the Indian vice-captain for throwing his wicket away against New Zealand for the second time in the final.
Oh, No Rahane!
This is not acceptable!
Kabhi Rahane soft dismissal ke peeche, kabhi soft dismissal Rahane ke peeche, TOO MUCH FUN!— Shubh Aggarwal (@shubh_chintak) June 23, 2021
RHANE IS OUT!
Rahane should have played his lap pull on that. Rather get out caught at square leg than get strangled down the leg side. #WTC2021— cricBC (@cricBC) June 23, 2021
