A solid opening batsman when he first began, Ajinkya Rahane now bats at No.3 for Mumbai and in the middle-order for India. The 25-year old continues to open for his IPL franchise and is the mainstay of their batting lineup. Changing batting positions hasn’t affected Rahane one bit, and he still goes about piling big scores on a regular basis for the various teams that he represents. With a solid technique and sound temperament, he proved his mettle at the international stage on India’s tours to South Africa and New Zealand recently. After being the leading run-getter for RR in IPL 2012, he was the highest run-getter in CLT20 2013. He also hit an unbeaten century in the shortest format of the game.
