Since being shared online, the post so far has received over 2.28 lakh likes along with several comments from Instagram users. Sharing their lovely reaction to the pictures, fans dropped their comment complementing perfect family photos of the Rahanes.
Meanwhile, some users also shared their best wishes for the fast recovery of Rahane from the hamstring injury.
Rahane along with Virat Kohli had to miss out from the squad for the practice game against Select County XI in Durham due to injuries. While Rahane experienced mild swelling around his left upper hamstring, Kohli complained about feeling stiffness in his back. In absence of both the captain and vice-captain, Rohit Sharma led the Indian team in the practice game.
The Indian contingent camping in England had suffered major blows after many players of the team were injured. Opener Shubman Gill, pacer Avesh Khan and spinner Washington Sundar have already been ruled out of the series. Further injuries of senior players like Kohli and Rahane is only creating trouble for the team. However, Rahane is expected to be fully fit before the start of the first test against England.
Meanwhile, Surya Kumar Yadav and Prithvi Shaw will travel to England to join the Indian squad as replacements for injured players.
