Rahane reminds me a bit of Tendulkar: Waugh
Former Australian captain Steve Waugh on Sunday said that Ajinkya Rahane reminded him a bit of Sachin Tendulkar and his “compact technique” would fetch him a lot of runs for India.
Waugh, who is here for the inauguration of <g data-gr-id="21">world class</g> sports arena at Brigade Orchards at the outskirts of the city, said Rahane has modelled himself on iconic batsman Tendulkar.
“I like Rahane and he is a <g data-gr-id="26">quality</g> player. He reminds me quite a bit of Tendulkar. He does not have a very big back swing. He obviously has modeled himself a bit on Tendulkar,” Waugh said in an interview at the inauguration of <g data-gr-id="27">world class</g> sports arena at Brigade Orchards at the outskirts of the city here.
“(Virat) Kohli is a <g data-gr-id="18">world class</g> player, one of the best. But, I also like Rahane’s technique. He has a very compact technique, has shots all around the ground and has a good temperament. I like him as a player and is going to score a lot of runs for India,” said Waugh. Asked about Kohli’s captaincy, Waugh said the Delhi batsman was on right track as a skipper after he led India to a historic away Test series win in Sri Lanka.
