Rahul celebrated the same in 2019 as well
Rahul scored 108 runs off 114 balls. He partnered 113 runs from 80 balls for the fourth wicket with Rishabh Pant. Earlier, in December 2019, Rahul had celebrated the same way after scoring a century in the ODI against West Indies in Visakhapatnam. After the match, when former veteran player and commentator Ian Bishop asked him about this celebration, he said that I want to keep it a secret.
Even after scoring a century against the West Indies in 2019, Rahul celebrated by keeping a hand on his ear.
Fans supported Rahul on social media
His celebrations are being shared widely on social media. A fan wrote where those people went, who were demanding to drop him from the series. At the same time, another fan wrote that Rahul does not want to hear the voice of any outsider regarding his form and batting.
Another fan wrote that Rahul closed the mouth of all the trollers by putting up a century. At the same time, the other fan wrote that Rahul scored a century and I like his celebration a lot. One user wrote that Sanjay Manjrekar would have also seen this celebration of Rahul. Actually after the T20 series, he was criticized by former cricketer Manjrekar.
Rahul scored 15 runs in T20 series
Rahul had scored 15 runs in 4 matches in the T20 series. In the T20 series, he was dismissed for zero in a row. After this, the fans and many former cricketers raised questions about their presence in the team. However, in the ODIs he returned to form and scored an innings of 62 runs off 43 balls in the first match.
Kohli supported Rahul
Captain Kohli also supported Rahul after being trolled by the fans. Kohli said that people have their own perspective. He enjoys listening to criticism these days. If a player is falling down, then people enjoy dropping it further down. These are all meaningless things to me. We will continue to support our players and try to be mentally healthy.
