Australia vs India, 2nd Test: Ajinkya Rahane's Gesture For Ravindra Jadeja Draws Praise

Ajinkya Rahane, India's most successful batsman in the first innings of the second Test against Australia, went for a quick single and lost his wicket in the process while trying to get Ravindra Jadeja to a half-century. In the 100th over of India's first innings, Jadeja, batting on 49, pushed a delivery from Nathan Lyon towards short cover for a quick single. However, Marnus Labuschagne sprinted towards the ball and pulled off an accurate throw to wicket-keeper Tim Paine, who whipped off the bails while Rahane was only marginally short of his ground. 

Rahane's gesture after being dismissed, though, drew applause on social media. The Indian captain seemed to reassure Jadeja and ask his teammate to carry on after their game-changing 121-run partnership came to an end.
