Ind vs Eng, 4th Test: India vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane once again failed to make his mark in the fourth Test against England at Oval. He departed for just 14 runs before getting caught out to Moeen Ali off Craig Overton. In the match, he was also pushed down to sixth place in the batting department. Rahane has managed just 109 runs in the last 6 innings for India in England. If we take out his half-century (61) against England at Lord’s, Rahane’s scorecards read 5, 1, 10, 18 and 14. He seems to be facing issues against the likes of England pacers James Anderson, Ollie Robinson and Craig Overton.

Ind vs Eng, 4th Test: Ajinkya Rahane’s lean patch with bat continues in England
Rahane’s continuous failure during the ongoing series has posed questions to the team management. Meanwhile, SuryaKumar Yadav and Mayank Agarwal are waiting for their chance in the Test series. While SuryaKumar is waiting for his debut, Mayank Agarwal has the tendency to bat in the middle-order as Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have occupied the opening spots.
Meanwhile, India’s batting mainstay Cheteshwar Pujara also failed to continue his from where he left off at Leeds. He departed for just 4 runs before falling prey to James Anderson, leading to India’s woes on Day 1. Virat Kohli was the only positive with a fifty but failed to convert it to a century.
