In the Jo’burg Test, Ajinkya Rahane’s poor form in Test cricket persisted.

Duanne Oliver threw out Ajinkya Rahane for a golden duck.

Rahane’s batting method was criticized by a former Indian cricketer.

By Duanne Oliver, Ajinkya Rahane was bowled out for a golden duck in the second Test against South Africa at Johannesburg.

It was the senior batter’s first-ever golden duck in the longest format of the game on Monday, which brought his dry spell in Test cricket to a new low. He was bowled out for a golden duck by Duanne Oliver in the ongoing second Test against South Africa in Johannesburg. Delivered on the off-stump and with a lowered pitch. A third slip, Keegan Petersen was waiting for Keegan Petersen after Rahane had poked at the ball.

Aakash Chopra, a former Indian batsman, commented on Rahane’s dismissal, saying that the former India Test vice-captain should have left the delivery.

“He’s literally lunging forward with his front leg, which is clearly visible. The only way to see Rahane’s body inside the box is from a square angle, which reveals that he is completely outside of it. Hence, he had just two possibilities to choose from if he was going so far and fast on a short delivery with little value to provide. One of us simply poked his bat, and he did as he was told. In light of the fact that he has decided to play a short ball, he should have left the ball “Chopra clarified this on Star Sports’ Lunch show.

Captain Virat Kohli has been ruled out of India’s upcoming Johannesburg Test at Wanderers Stadium because of an injury. Before he threw, he had a back spasm.

The result was that KL Rahul was selected the match’s stand-in skipper and Hanuma Vihari was inserted into the playing XI to replace Kohli.

In Johannesburg, India won the toss and Rahul chose to bat first.
