With both international and domestic cricket on a prolonged hiatus due to coronavirus, cricketers too are increasingly growing anxious in wait of live action. Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane is no different. He let his emotions known on Thursday with a throwback photo of himself with captain Virat Kohli during a Test match, possibly staring at the giant screen.
Rahane captioned the photo: “Waiting for the cricket season to begin be like…#MissingCricket”.
Kohli too responded with “Haha” to Rahane’s post.
Rahane has been quite active on social media these days. Recently, the Test vice-captain took up the ‘keep it up’ social media challenge after fellow teammate Rohit Sharma had passed on the baton to him.
This was after Yuvraj Singh had nominated Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit and Harbhajan Singh to juggle a cricket ball with the side of a bat. Ajinkya Rahane took to his official Twitter account to post a video of him juggling a pink cricket ball with the side of his bat.
Rahane captioned the post,”Challenge accepted, @ImRo45! Had shot this in the evening so used the pink ball!?? I’m committed to staying at home. Next up @Sdhawan25 @Cheteshwar1 & @Wriddhipops.”
Earlier, former India captain Anil Kumble also responed to the ‘Keep It Up’ challenge after being nominated for the same by former off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.
Anil Kumble like his former teammate Sachin Tendulkar completed the challenge by bringing in his own modification. Kumble couldn’t find a bat and decided to ace the challenge with a folded wrist.
