Ajinkya Rahane’s Birthday: The Man Who Broke Gabba’s Fortress On His Captaincy Debut! Our very own “The Wall,” Ajinkya Rahane, turns 36 today! This calm and composed batsman achieved something as captain that even legends like Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni, and Virat Kohli couldn’t! Let’s rewind to 2021…

Captain Rahane And The Gabba Gamble

Remember how Virat Kohli had to head back to India for his daughter’s birth during the Australia tour in 2021? That’s when Ajinkya Rahane stepped up as captain.

The venue? The Gabba – a fortress where Australia hadn’t lost a Test match in 32 years! But under Rahane’s leadership, India pulled off a historic heist, winning the match by 3 wickets and shattering Australia’s Gabba dominance!

Gill And Pant: The Batting Blitz

Chasing a mammoth 328 runs, India’s start wasn’t ideal. But then, young gun Shubman Gill smashed a brilliant 91, giving the team some much-needed stability. And then came the showstopper – Rishabh Pant! His unbeaten 89 sealed the deal for India, leaving the Aussies stunned.

Rahane’s Captaincy Masterclass

Rahane’s calm and composed captaincy kept the team motivated. The bowlers too were on fire, restricting the Aussie batsmen and making them work hard for every run.

A Record Only Rahane Owns

This win wasn’t just a win for India; it was a personal milestone for Rahane. He achieved something that even the greats of Indian cricket couldn’t – win a Test match at the Gabba against Australia!
