BCCI Central Contract: Rahane and Pujara Set to Be Downgraded to Grade B From A

BETADDA

India‘s senior cricketers Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara came under fire for their poor performance of late. Both stalwarts failed to bring out their improved performance in the longest format of the game.

Despite the fact that they were stuttering with the bat, the BCCI kept on backing them by offering chances to the senior cricketers. It’s been more than two years since Pujara scored a Test ton.

On the other hand, Ajinkya Rahane’s last Test century came against Australia back in December 2020 at the MCG. Since then, Rahane struggled to pick up the form in red-ball cricket.

India’s No.3 Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara came under fire for his inability to score runs quickly. Although he improved on his strike rate, he hasn’t done much to elevate the team’s scoreboard.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) offered them the last chance to showcase their mettle in the team’s tour of South Africa. However, they failed to grab the opportunity in both hands.

Although the duo scored a fifty apiece in the second Test at The Wanderers Stadium, it wasn’t enough. Moreover, Proteas dominated Team India in the Test series as they won by 2-1.

Despite losing the Centurion Test match, Proteas went on to win the second and third Test match and won the series. Rahane and Pujara didn’t earn the trust of the selectors.

Earlier, former Indian cricketer, Sunil Gavaskar added that Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara would be dropped for the upcoming two-match Test series against Sri Lanka, given their recent performances.

The senior cricketers, Rahane and Pujara are set to be demoted to Grade B from A in the BCCI Central Contract. Perhaps, the duo might be heading towards domestic cricket in order to prove themselves.

The selectors are pretty confident that the duo would find some form. However, they don’t want to close the door permanently. They want them to bring out improved performances in domestic cricket.

In fact, Pujara and Rahane have a few more years of good cricket left in them. They will look to work on their batting and get back to form. Mohammed Siraj is set to move in Grade B or A from C, as reported by the Times of India.

“We will sit with Rahul and the next captain on the transition plan after the South Africa series. But the doors will not be closed for them. We will advise them to go back to domestic cricket and regain their form and then try to make a comeback,” a source informed.
