International Career

Test Career

Following the retirement of stalwarts like VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid, the Indian selectors started blooding the youngsters for the big stage. After a year in and out of the team and 16 months on the bench, an injury to Shikhar Dhawan finally got Rahane the most desirable piece of attire in Indian cricket – Test cap number 278.

Rahane played in the Investec Test Series (India tour of England, 2014) in England and instantly made an impression. He hit a magnificent century on his first appearance at the Lord’s and went up the honours board. Rahane’s century ensured that India won at Lord’s after a long wait of 28 years.

ODI Career

He made his ODI debut against England in Chester-le-Street, where he scored 40 runs at a strike rate of 90.

Despite being a vital cog in the Test line-up, Rahane continues to go in and out of the ODI side. He did, however, do well enough to be given a ticket to the 2015 World Cup in Australia, where he performed admirably in the middle-order, playing a vital knock of 79 against South Africa.

He was overlooked for the 2019 World Cup squad that went to England. Despite India’s number 4 batting problems and Rahane’s an excellent record in England, the selectors gave him the side-eye. His exclusion drew the wrath of many cricket pundits as ultimately India paid the price of a fragile middle-order in the Semi-finals.
