Earlier, Ajinkya Rahane also addressed all the talks going around his form in the ongoing series against England. He said that he is "not concerned" about the criticism and he is "happy" that people are talking about him as "people criticise only important people". 

Rahane faced criticism after the first Test match as he scored 5 runs in the first innings and did not bat in the second. In the first innings of the second Test, Rahane scored 1 run, but later he impressed in the second innings with his bat by scoring crucial 61 runs for the team. Going forward in the series, there was a lot of chatter around Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara's performance.

He said, "I am happy people are talking about me. I have always felt people talk about important people so I am not concerned about that. It's all about the contributions for the team. Cheteshwar and I have been playing for a long time, we know how to handle pressure, we know how to handle certain situations, so we are not concerned about them. We are just focusing on the team, we just want to contribute for the team, and that's what we are doing. Whatever we can't control, we are not thinking about that."
