IND vs ENG 2nd Test LIVE: Rahane has failed to live up to the expectations in the last few matches. In 2021 he has played nine Tests in which he could only score 269 runs with just 0 hundred to his name. The right-hand batsman is averaging 19.21 in the year 2021.
Rahane’s last fifty came in February 2021 against England in the 2nd Test at Chennai. In his last 8 innings, he has failed to put up a fifty-plus score.

Rahane’s stats since century at Melbourne
22, 4, 37, 24, 1, 0, 67, 10, 7, 27, 49, 15, 5, 1
Since the historic century at Melbourne, Rahane has just scored one fifty in 15 innings.
There was a question mark on Rahane’s place in the side since his dip in the form after the Australia series. Mayank Agarwal is in the squad who can bat at number five in Rahane’s place as his original spot (Opener) has been sealed by KL Rahul with an excellent century.
