During the last few overs of the first day’s play at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi, there was a heartwarming gesture made by India’s Ajinkya Rahane. The gesture was an act of support made by Rahane towards Temba Bavuma stationed at short leg. Rahane was going great guns in his knock and was hammering the spinners away.

On a delivery pitched on the fuller side by off-spinner Dane Piedt, Rahane looked to sweep and swept the ball hard. Rather, the ball hit the fingers of Bavuma, who stood at short leg. Bavuma violently shook his fingers in pain and agony, as the ball was hit hard.

Rahane soon went up to him and held his hand, as a sign of respect and care. It was a gesture for which the crowd clapped and stood up. It is acts like these, which makes cricket the gentleman’s game. Below, is the video of that incident.
