It is said that if you want to judge batsmen then ask them to play test matches. Anil Kumble has recently been appointed Team India’s coach. Though people were a bit unsure because of his lack of experience in coaching but this special ‘One Hour’ test results will sure make you feel proud of the selection of Anil Kumble as the new coach.
So, what was the ‘One Hour’ test?
The test was set by Anil Kumble in which the batsmen had to bat for 1 hour without getting out and bowlers had to get as many wickets as possible.
Surprisingly, only one batsman passed this test. Here are the results:
If you think its Virat Kohli then it’s a NO for you. He got out twice in one hour.
Ravindra Jadega got Kohli out on both the occasions.
Shikhar Dhawan, the opener of the Indian cricket team, also got out twice behind the stumps.
Opening partner Murali Vijay also lost his wicket twice in that hour.
KL Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara were run out once during their batting periods.
Ishant Sharma got him out on both the occasions.
So are you excited to know who was the only batsman who passed Anil Kumble’s test with flying colors?
Guys its Ajinkya Rahane who accomplished the one hour challenge given by Anil Kumble. Isn’t this surprising for you?
Don’t know whether Anil Kumble is happy or furious with the result but Ajinkya has shown his true potential and raised the bar for others as well. Do not condemn the results, rather you should be happy about such amazing performances by our bowlers!
