Team India is currently struggling against formidable Australia in the ongoing World Test Championship Final at the Oval. However, the Indian team managed to avoid a complete disaster due to impressive batting by Ajinkya Rahane and Shardul Thakur who put together a 109-run stand in India’s first innings.

Rahane’s brilliant batting was particularly noteworthy as he managed to score a crucial fifty despite suffering from a finger injury. Fans and experts heaped praise on the veteran batsman for his resilience and determination. Moreover, Rahane made a sensational return to the Indian team after a long hiatus.

Despite excruciating pain, Rahane refused to give up and in the process he became the first Indian to score a fifty in the WTC final. It was a great achievement given the circumstances.

After Rahane’s inspiring knock, his wife Radhika Dhopavkar shared a touching message for her husband. In her post, she disclosed that Rahane made the decision to forgo scans in order to maintain his mental fortitude and concentrate on his batting.

“Despite your swollen finger, you refused a scan to protect your mindset and focused on batting, displaying incredible selflessness and determination. With unwavering resilience and commitment, you took your place at the crease, inspiring us all. I’m forever proud of your unwavering team spirit, my resilient partner. Love you endlessly,” the Instagram post read.

The post has reportedly gone viral. It has so far garnered around 50,000 likes and several comments from the fans.
