5th ODI: Fans want Ajinkya Rahane to be drafted back in the Indian team for the upcoming World Cup after Virat Kohli-led Team India lost 3-2 against Australia at home. It was the Indian middle-order that was found wanting and was a major reason for the result. Twitterverse feels the World Cup squad is far from complete and a lot of loopholes still need to be plugged. India lost the Delhi decider by 35 runs which helped Australia create history. It was also the first time India lost a bilateral ODI series under the leadership of Virat Kohli.
Here is how fans are demanding the return of Rahane:
Fans feel Ajikya Rahane has the quality to slot into this Indian team for the marquee tournament. Rahane has featured in 95 ODIs and has amassed 2962 runs at an average of 35.26. He also has three centuries to his name.
