Bio

Ajinkya Rahane is a star on the rise who is continuing India’s tradition of producing plenty of high-quality batsmen.

The talented top-order batsman dominated the first-class scene in India before breaking through into the national side, first with his one-day international debut against England in 2011 followed by his first appearance in the Test side in 2013.

A Mumbai boy who had big dreams of representing India in cricket, Rahane has now played more than 50 international games across the three formats and become a regular fixture in the team.

Known for his discipline and dedication, the 26-year-old has performed better on the Test stage than the ODI arena, but is becoming more consistent and has lifted his one-day average to around 30.

Highlights of his one-day career to date include 91 against England in 2011 and his maiden ton in September 2014, also against England.

Rahane’s first Test century came in Wellington against New Zealand in early 2014, but his standout innings to date came against England at Lord’s in July when he put in a gutsy performance on a green top to score 103 and help India to victory.

His recent form as been solid, with decent scores including 111 off 108 balls in an ODI against Sri Lanka in November.
