Ajinkya Rahane and Ravichandran Ashwin will feature in the upcoming edition of the Indian Premier League. The IPL 2021 will go all guns blazing tomorrow as the defending champions Mumbai Indians will lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the first game.
The match will be staged at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Meanwhile, Delhi Capitals will take on Chennai Super Kings on April 10 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Ravi Ashwin and Rahane will ply their trade for Delhi Capitals this season.
Rahane’s performance was not up to the mark in the previous 2 seasons of the IPL. Rahane played for Rajasthan Royals in the 2019 season but did not live up to his name. The inaugural IPL champions traded the veteran player to Delhi Capitals ahead of IPL 2020. The 32-year-old struggled to score runs throughout the season.
Moreover, he was not part of the playing XI on a regular basis. Rahane played 9 games and managed to score 113 runs at a terrible average of 14.12 and a strike rate of 105.60. However, the experienced right-handed batsman will be looking forward to delivering the goods this time.
Rahane gives an apt reply to Ashwin on Instagram
Meanwhile, the Indian cricketer decided to light up his mood by posting a throwback picture on Instagram. His Delhi Capitals teammate Ravi Ashwin decided to pull Rahane’s leg by commenting on the post. It was so good to see Indian stars being involved in light banter on Instagram.
The drama unfolded when Rahane took to social media to share an old image of himself where he is posting for a photoshoot. He also posted a caption that reads “Back from the days out of the bubble, when getting ready and posing for pictures was a thing!”
Meanwhile, Ravi Ashwin hilariously dropped a cheeky remark as he asked his teammate as to why he was so serious and why was his “million-dollar smile” missing? “Why so serious buddy? Where is that million-dollar smile??” Ravi Ashwin wrote.
Rahane came up with a perfect reply to Ashwin as the stalwart wrote “that comes with you joining in the bubble” He also posted two smiley emojis.
