Rishabh Pant, Ajinkya Rahane Trains With Vinod Kambli Ahead of South Africa Tour

India’s former Test vice captain Ajinkya Rahane and wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant trained with Vinod Kambli in Mumbai. Rahane has been under pressure for not scoring runs; he is currently averaging 17 in Test cricket. Hopefully he will turn it around and there couldn’t be a better place than Rainbow Nation which remains hostile to batters. The team will play their first Test in Centurion starting December 26.

The Mumbaikar lost his vice-captaincy to Rohit Sharma who now has been ruled out of the three-match Test series. The BCCI is yet to make a formal announcement on who will be Virat Kohli’s deputy. Meanwhile, Kambli was also joined by his son Christiano. “Was a pleasure to help Ajinkya & Rishabh train for the upcoming South Africa series. Shared some valuable insights with them about the SA conditions. My best wishes to them for #SAvIND series.”

“P.S. Christiano got some lessons as well,” Kambli tweeted.
