Duleep Trophy: Ajinkya Rahane sets example, asks Yashasvi Jaiswal to leave the field for indiscipline | Cricket News

COIMBATORE: In a rare act, West area Captain Ajinkya Rahane ordered his teammate Yashasvi Jaiswal to leave the field for disciplinary reasons, setting an example on day five of the Duleep Trophy final against South area here.
The 20 year old Jaiswal had a great time with the bat, breaking a brilliant double century to set up a big win for the West Zone in the summit showdown.

However, the same cannot be said for his time on the pitch as he found himself at the center of controversy on Sunday. His captain Rahane asked him to leave the field for going too far with the luge against south zone hitter Ravi Teja.
South hitter Ravi Teja had apparently complained about the verbal volleys Jaiswal constantly fired at him as he lined up near the bat.
After being questioned earlier, Jaiswal came under fire again in the 57th when the infield umpire complained about the young hitter’s alleged verbal volleys. Jaiswal looked animated when Rahane told him about his action and sent him off, leaving West Zone with 10 men on the pitch.

Jaiswal returned to the pitch after being out for seven overs.
He was later declared Man of the Match after West won by 294 points.

The modest Rahane has always been like that. When mohamed siraj facing racial abuse in Australia, Rahane, who managed the team in the absence of Virat Kohli, spoke about it with the match referee, but refrained from engaging with the Australians on or off the ground.
Asked about the incident involving Jaiswal, Rahane said after the match: “I believe in always respecting your opponents, the referees and the match officials. So you have to deal with certain incidents in a certain way.”
