Rahane and Pujara’s slow batting in the second Test against England was criticized a lot. “Everything inspires me and I am not bothered by criticism,” Rahane said. “I’m glad people are talking about it,” he said.
Rahane says that he has played so much cricket that he knows what suits the interests of the Indian team. Laughing at the criticism being received on social media, Rahane said that only ‘important people’ are talked about.
Rahane scored 61 off 146 balls, while Pujara scored 45 off 206 balls and added 100 runs in nearly 50 overs during their partnership. Rahane said before the third Test starting on Wednesday, ‘I am happy that people are talking about me. I’ve always assumed that people talk about important people, so I’m more concerned about that. It is about contributing to the team.
