In this way, the Border-Gavaskar Trophy was retained.
When the players returned home, they were strongly welcomed. Rahane had a great reception at his home in Mumbai amidst a drum, red carpet and a splash of flowers. Appearing to be extremely calm, Rahane was waiting to welcome Rahane with his cake but Rahane refused to cut the cake.
Drum, welcome by drums
Red carpet was laid for Rahane inside the Societe. Fans were shouting slogans of ‘Ala Re Ala, Ajinkya Rahane Ala’ during this time. When Rahane arrived inside the society, there was a big cake on which a kangaroo was made to welcome him. KK was given the shape of a cricket pitch. A kangaroo was sitting on the cake carrying the Indian tricolor. Rahane did not like it. He did not want to insult the opposing team. In such a situation, he refused to cut the cake and asked that it be distributed.
In this way Rahane won his heart with his sportsmanship. This video of Rahane is becoming very viral on social media and fans are praising it fiercely.
