Pujara and Rahane are set to clash in the first match of the Ranji Trophy

Saurashtra, Mumbai, Goa and Odisha will play each other in Group D of the upcoming Ranji Trophy. On February 17th, the first game of this group will be between defending champions Saurashtra and the most successful Ranji side Mumbai. Hence, we could see Pujara and Rahane playing against each other so early in the tournament.

Meanwhile, India will be a part of a Test assignment against Sri Lanka at home from the end of February. After a dismal show in South Africa, both Rahane and Pujara are set to be dropped from the team. They had been backed for a long, but after India lost the series to South Africa, it is certain that the management will take a few bold decisions. The likes of Hanuma Vihari and Shreyas Iyer are waiting in the wings and this will be the best time for the management to start the transition era.

In the Ranji Trophy, Ajinkya Rahane will play under the leadership of Prithvi Shaw while Pujara will play under Jaydev Unadkat. The fact that both have been named in the squads means that the duo could be expecting an axe.

Twitter reacts to the news

Just a few years ago, Pujara and Rahane were un-droppable names in the Indian Test Team. However, in a few days, the duo will clash in a domestic tournament. Unless they perform extremely well in it, a comeback is difficult. Meanwhile, here is what Twitter had to say about the upcoming Rahane-Pujara faceoff.
