Ajinkya Rahane who has been in magnificent touch off late has introduced his own bat line which has been named Resolute. Rahane made his mark in the recently concluded West Indies tour where he earned himself the Man of the Series award with some stellar performances.
The elegant stroke player took to his Twitter account and announced the exciting news. The right handed batsman expressed his happiness with a picture and caption mentioning the same. The bat has been sponsored by CEAT..
His tweet read “Super excited to be launching my Signature Bat line ‘Resolute’ with CEAT! #Jinx #CEAT #BAT.” In the photo, we can see the batsman posing with his newly launched weapon which also has the word ‘jinx’ written on it. Jinx happens to be Rahane’s nickname in the Indian team.
On his critics:
While Rahane has cemented his place in the Test team perfectly, he is yet to do so in the shorter versions of the game. His abilities as a One Day cricketer have been brought under the scanner and we saw the batsman sit out on the batch during the recently concluded ICC Champions Trophy. However, Rahane is prepared to step up for the team in whichever format and doesn’t let this issues distract him from the game.
“If I am the vice-captain of the Test team, it does not mean that I will not be performing my duties as a 12th man in ODIs. The moment you are representing your country, you are supposed to do whatever you are assigned. When I was carrying drinks during the Champions Trophy, I had no ego issues. That’s how I am as a person,” Rahane said.
Rahane grabbed the opportunity he got in the absence of Rohit Sharma with both hands. He made the Caribbean outing a memorable one for himself and is pleased with his efforts. “West Indies was a special series for me simply for the consistency that I was able to show. This series is an important one for my ODI career and getting runs in almost all the matches was a really satisfying feeling. I got the opportunity to show a different side to my batting and express myself differently,” he said.
