Ajinkya Rahane Century: Indian cricketer Ajinkya Rahane has been failing to score big for the last two years. Due to this, he had to become the master of criticism. Not only that, in the mega auction of IPL, the franchises did not show interest in buying him. In the end, the Kolkata team bought Ajinkya Rahane at its original price. However, on the first day of the Ranji Trophy, Ajinkya Rahane showed his glimpse to everyone. He scored a century on the first day of the Ranji Trophy against Saurashtra at the Narendra Modi Stadium. He not only scored a century in this match but also recovered his team which lost 3 wickets for 44 runs. On the strength of Ajinkya Rahane’s century, Mumbai lost wickets on the first day of the Ranji Trophy and scored 263 runs.
The first match of Ranji Trophy 2022 has started in Mumbai and Saurashtra. Mumbai skipper Prithvi Shaw won the toss and elected to bat first. However, Mumbai got off to a bad start. Saurashtra bowlers bowled out Mumbai’s top bowlers for 44 runs. After that, Ajinkya Rahane, who came on the field to bat, saved Mumbai’s innings and got the team out of a difficult situation. Rahane scored 100 off 212 balls in this match. It includes 14 fours and 2 sixes. At the end of the first day’s play, Rahane returned unbeaten on 108 runs.
Reaching the 5,000 mark in international Test cricket is very close. The performance over the last few days has been very disappointing. He has scored 819 runs at an average of 24 in the last 19 Tests. So, in the last one and a half years, he has not been able to score a single century. He also failed miserably on the tour of South Africa. Not only that, there were rumors that Ajinkya Rahane would be dropped from the Indian cricket team. However, such discussions have come to an end with Ajinkya Rahane.
