Ajinkya Rahane : Time for him to step up and claim the big prize?
Those who follow Indian Domestic cricket for atleast 2 years would be now all too familiar about this Mumbaikar.
He's been exceptional in the domestic circuit for the past few seasons and his career FC average is 63 after 25 matches. With already 8 100s under his belt, one wonders why he has not quite made the airwaves as he should.
I watched him in the Ranji matches, and to be honest, I was wondering that how could he be that prolific with such a technique. He did not overtly impress me at any point of time. But somehow he manages to get the runs on the board.
Perhaps people like Arjun who follow them very closely can help me out. Is he the real deal for India? Or is he another domestic champion who thrives on flat pitches and mediocre bowlers and struggles against quality oppositions?
