On missing the West Indies tour / century, Rahane said - I am not selfish, always play for the team


Antigua. India scored 203 for 6 in the first innings of the first match of the two-Test series against the West Indies. Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane contributed 81 runs in this. He missed a century against the Windies for the second time in a row. The last time he was dismissed for 80 in 2018 in Hyderabad. Rahane, who has not scored a century for two years, said he has no qualms about missing it. Rahane says they are not 'selfish'.





On the question related to the century, Rahane said, 'I knew it would be asked and I was already ready for it. As long as I am at the crease, I only think about the team. I am not selfish. I have no sadness to miss a century as I feel that the innings of 81 runs on this wicket was also enough. We are now in fine condition in this test.





Rahane forms half-century partnership with Rahul and Vihari





In the first innings, three batsmen of India returned to the pavilion within 25 runs. After this Rahane first shared a 68-run partnership with Lokesh Rahul and then 82 with Hanuma Vihari. Rahane hit 10 fours in a 163-ball innings. He last scored a century against Sri Lanka in 2017 at the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo in 2017.





"The run becomes automatic by playing according to the situation"
Rahane, 31, said, "As long as I am contributing to the team, it matters more." Yes, I was thinking about my century, but it was difficult after three wickets for 25 runs. The run becomes automatic by playing according to the situation. Rahane played county cricket in England in the last few months. During this, he had scored a century and a half-century in 7 matches.
