While Shikhar Dhawan rode his way to a sensational 137 against South Africa at the MCG in the 2015 World Cup, people didn’t fail to appreciate the brilliance of Ajinkya Rahane, who scored a masterful 79 off just 60 balls. His knock in such an important match saw the fans consider him as India’s number 4 for the time to come.

Yet, just the way it happened in case of Raina, Rahane too vanished from the International scene very soon. The Mumbaikar lost his touch in the Tests as well, which saw him get dropped for some important games in South Africa and England despite being the vice-captain of the team.

Since February 2018, Rahane did not feature in a limited-overs game for the Indian side and his road to the 2019 World Cup saw an abrupt and early end.
