Ajinkya Rahane’s Dressing Room Speech At The Gabba After Test Series Win In Australia. Watch
- Updated: January 24, 2021
As India registered an emphatic series win to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Australia, skipper Ajinkya Rahane decided to give a pep talk to all the players at The Gabba.
Ajinkya Rahane, India’s stand-in skipper in the just-concluded Test series in Australia, addressed the team after the visitors secured a memorable win at the Gabba. India, marred with injuries, beat Australia by three wickets in the fourth Test and in the process ended the hosts’ 32-year-long unbeaten run at the Gabba. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Saturday took to Twitter to share a video in which Rahane can be seen appreciating the effort of each individual throughout the Test series that saw them turn things around after being bowled out for 36 in the first Test in Adelaide.
This is a massive moment for all of us. What happened in Adelaide, how we came back from Melbourne onwards was really good to see. Everyone did their effort, everyone contributed, it was not about one or two individuals,” Rahane said.
“I just want to mention Kuldeep Yadav and Kartik Tyagi. Kuldeep, I know it was tough for you, you did not play a game here but your attitude was really good. Your time will come, just keep working hard. Kartik you were fantastic,” he added.
After India’s win at the Gabba, the BCCI had shared a video from the dressing room where head coach Ravi Shastri was seen giving a rousing speech to the squad.
With the win in Brisbane, India climbed to the top of the World Test Championship standings.
