India batsman and Rajasthan Royals' skipper Ajinkya Rahane yesterday was trolled heavily on social media after he posted a picture of himself during training and asked fans to guess what he was 'trying to do'. With the Indian Premier League (IPL) set to begin in less than a week's time, Rahane and his team is gearing up to try and win their second title in 12 editions of the tournament.
Posting a photo from training, India's Test vice-captain had written on his Twitter page: "Any thoughts on what I was trying to do? MondayThoughts".

Soon after the tweet was posted, Rahane was bombarded with some hilarious answers from users on the micro-blogging site. While some said that his stance reminded of what one does while sweeping the floor while others photo-shopped the image with different backgrounds depicting Rahane jumping off.

Rahane was elevated to the captain's role last season after Steve Smith was suspended, due to the Sandpaper Gate. This season will see the India batsman take charge for the second time.
