Ajinkya Rahane has always been one of the most trustable sources of runs for any side he’s played for and he has also captained the Indian test side against Australia once. One of the most technically gifted cricketers, Rahane tends to apply his basics to perfection no matter what format he’s playing and no matter what situation he’s approaching.
Henceforth, there was absolutely no question as to who would lead the Rajasthan Royals after their talismanic cricketer Steve Smith was banned by Cricket Australia. Rahane was handed the leadership responsibilities and the lad is doing quite a good job after their side’s horrendous start against the Sunrisers in Hyderabad.
They sit in the top half of the table with two wins in 3 games. After their memorable win against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rahane was palpably over the moon. He also took some time to click a picture after the game with the second son of Rahul Dravid, Anvay Dravid. As one would expect, the picture went viral and a fact that both Rahane and Anvay had the same jersey number made the picture look even more adorable.

A tough Test lies ahead for the Royals
The Rajasthan Royals have bounced back brilliantly after that horrendous opening game against SRH, but they have a set of tough games lined up to test their capabilities. They’ll lock horns with the Chennai Super Kings up next at the MCA Stadium, Pune. This game will garner a lot of attention as it’s a contest between the two sides who are making their comeback this season.
As one would expect, this is all set to go down the wire and entertain the fans. A positive result here would mean the world to Ajinkya Rahane as they’ll accumulate great momentum before things begin to tighten up. The middle stages of the tournament are always tricky and given the Royals can combat the next game well, they will be well in contention for a place in the final four.
