Usually, when a batsman is run-out after a mistake or rather a wrong call from his partner, he loses his cool. Over the years, one has constantly seen players lashing out at their teammates after such incidents. However, Ajinkya Rahane, on Monday, proved that he is an exception as he came up with a brilliant gesture after being run-out.

The India stand-in captain’s stunning knock came to an end in a disappointing manner when he was run-out for 112 after his partner Ravindra Jadeja called for a quick single to complete his fifty. The incident took place on the fifth ball of the 100th over when Jadeja was facing Nathan Lyon with Rahane at the non-striker’s end.

The India allrounder was desperate to complete his fifty and after failing to get to the milestone on the previous deliveries, he decided to go for a quick single after dabbing the ball towards the point region. Jadeja called for the single straightaway and Rahane duly obliged. But before Rahane could get inside the crease, Tim Paine took the bails off thanks to a stunning piece of work from Marnus Labuschagne.

And while one would have expected Rahane to lose his cool after the poor dismissal, the captain came up with an incredible gesture. Instead of losing his cool, he went towards an apologetic Jadeja and asked him to continue his good work with the bat. Rahane fist-bumped with Jadeja and wished him luck before walking off the field.

India in driver’s seat:

As far as the game is concerned, India have put itself in a strong position thanks to the century from Ajinkya Rahane and fifty from Ravindra Jadeja. After bowling out Australia for 195, the visitors scored 326 in their first innings to take a 131-run lead. Rahane and Jadeja starred with the bat for India and shared a 121-run stand for the sixth wicket.

The partnership came to an end on the third day with Rahane’s wicket before Jadeja went on to complete his fifty. Jadeja was out after scoring 57. Australia are currently leading the series after winning the first Test by eight wickets.
