Ajinkya Rahane

Twitter was flooded with reactions after Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batter Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed for just nine runs off 12 balls in the 2024 IPL game against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday, April 28. Opening the innings for the hosts, the 35-year-old once again failed to provide a solid start.

He has been criticized widely for his form and batting approach from fans and pundits alike. Here’s a look at some reactions on X (formerly Twitter) following Ajinkya Rahane’s dismissal for nine runs against SRH at Chepauk on Sunday evening:

“35(30), 5(8), 36(24), 1(3), 9(12). These are Ajinkya Rahane’s scores in the last 5 innings he has played in this IPL. I’m fearful today’s match can be his last IPL match as well if CSK loses,” a fan wrote.
