Ajinkya Rahane - A multi-facet talent

Ajinkya Rahane’s batting skills have earned him a commendable spot in the Indian team’s middle order but the pressure to perform has always loomed over him. Coming from a humble background, Ajinkya Rahane grew up in the suburbs of Mumbai and worked with minimal resources to hone his skills. He broke into the Ranji Trophy scene at an early age and played some impressive knocks. Unfortunately for him, the national team was already brimming with superstars and high-quality players.

However, Ajinkya Rahane’s cricket career at the senior level of the international stage took off in England during India’s tour of the country. Rahane was called to stand in for the injured and resting players and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands. He scored 61 in his T20 debut and followed this with a 40 in his ODI debut with a strike rate of 90.90.
