Ajinkya Rahane walked in at number 4 with all guns blazing and took the game by storm. Having lost both the openers Mayank Agarwal and Shubman Gill and Cheteshwar Pujara, there was a lot of pressure on Rahane’s shoulders, however, he soaked in all the pressure and played a terrific knock. He completed his 12th Test century off 195 balls, smashing 12 fours.

Meanwhile, several cricketers and cricket experts took to Twitter to applaud the amazing knock played by Rahane, while fans flooded the social media hailing the brilliance of Ajinkya Rahane. However, the special appreciation came from none other than the Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who is currently on paternal leave as he and his wife Anushka Sharma are expecting their baby in January.

The Indian skipper Virat Kohli also took to his Twitter and joined the bandwagon. Kohli came up with a special appreciation for the stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane’s top-class knock. He wrote:

“Another great day for us. Proper test cricket at its best. Absolutely top knock from Jinks,”
