Rohit Sharma said to me 'let the match get over, I'll teach Shardul Thakur a lesson,' recalls Ajinkya Rahane

Despite being a fabulous batter, there have been occasions when Thakur's batting has frustrated the onlookers.

One such incident was narrated by Ajinkya Rahane when Shardul's batting left Rohit Sharma fuming.

Shardul Thakur has proven time and again that he is a valuable asset with not the just the ball, but also with the bat

Despite breaking partnerships, Shardul has bailed India out of trouble while batting, with all three of his half-centuries coming at crucial junctures

A few months later, Shardul's twin fifties against England at The Oval played a huge role in India picking up a win.

Having said that, there have been occasions when Thakur's batting has frustrated the onlookers.

One such incident was narrated by Ajinkya Rahane when Shardul's batting left Rohit Sharma fuming. This was during the second innings of the Gabba Test 

as India were marching towards chasing down 328. With India losing Mayank Agarwal and Washington Sundar in quick succession, Shardul joined a set Rishabh Pant,

but while he was expected to take India over the finishing line with his partner, the India all-rounder played a rash shot and got out for two.

Shardul Thakur was walking in when Washington got out. Rohit told him 'This is your opportunity of becoming a hero'. And he just nodded and left," Rahane said on the documentary 'Bandon Mein Tha Dum' streaming on VOOT.
