Rahane prospers on County Championship debut

Rahane prospers on County Championship debut

After being let out of the World Cup squad, Indian middle order batsman Ajinkya Rahane has made a wonderful start to his County stint by striking a glorious century on debut for Hampshire. The Test vice-captain was in supreme form in his 197-ball stay at the crease, punishing the opposition’s bowling attack.

Rahane’s mighty effort has landed him a special place in history, as he becomes just the third Indian to score a century on County Championship debut. The other compatriots to do so include Murali Vijay and Piyush Chawla.

Rahane’s classy knock helped Hampshire into a strong position, as he batted for a lengthy period putting on a mammoth 257-run stand with skipper Sam Northeast. While the right-hander’s limited overs form may have taken a hit, he continues to excel in red ball cricket.
