Melbourne, December 25
Ajinkya Rahane today said he had apologised to Virat Kohli after the mix-up between the two led to the India captain’s game-changing run-out in the first Test against Australia in Adelaide.
Kohli was looking solid before the run-out for 74 on the opening day at Adelaide Oval. Upon realising that there was no run in it, Rahane decided to send back Kohli but it was too late by then.
“After the end of day’s play I went and said sorry to him (Kohli) but he was all okay, he was okay about it,” Rahane said on the eve of the second Test here.
“We both understood that the situation we were in, we were going well at that point, but such things happen in cricket, you got to respect that and you got to move forward.” — PTI
