IND vs SA Tests: Ajinkya Rahane living on borrowed time, fails to impress in Centurion

As Ajinkya Rahane blows away 2 good starts in the Centurion Test, the batter is living on borrowed time. Is it time for Team India to look ahead?

Ajinkya Rahane's selection over an in-form Shreyas Iyer for the Centurion Test vs South Africa left many cricket experts baffled. But India's former vice-captain looked good to prove his critics wrong as he started both his innings of the Boxing Day Test confidently.

However, Rahane failed to convert both of those good starts into a big one and was out for 48 and 20 in the respective innings. With that, Rahane's poor run continued as his last Test ton came 24 innings ago. He has also managed just 2 scores of over fifty during this period.

His average has also seen a drastic dip in the last couple of years. Rahane who averaged over 71 in 2019, scored just 272 runs in 8 innings the next year as his average came down to 39. 2021 has been a disastrous year for the batter as he averages a mere 20.8 in 23 innings.
