Ajinkya Rahane is an exciting top order batsman who bats at No. 3, and was a crucial factor in Mumbai's 38th title win. He progressed through the Mumbai ranks and has also been a part of the Indian U-19 team and the India 'A'. Ajinkya Rahane has also turned out for India Blue & Green in the Challenger Series, and West Zone in the Duleep Trophy. His wonderful Ranji season followed an impressive showing in the 2007-08 Duleep Trophy, where he scored 172 against an England Lions attack comprising Graham Onions, Monty Panesar, Steve Kirby and Liam Plunkett.

He continued to impress in domestic cricket, scoring three hundreds each in the 2009-10 and 2010-11 seasons of the Ranji Trophy. As of 27 December 2010, he averaged a high 69.01 in first-class cricket, which currently places him in the top 4 batsman in the world with the highest first class batting averages. Two centuries in the Emerging Players Tournament in Australia brought him a place in the India ODI squad for the tour of England in 2011. He made his debut on 31/8/11 and made 61 runs against England in his debut

Promising India batsman Ajinkya Rahane is disappointed to miss out a hundred by a whisker but said his match winning 98-run knock which helped Rajasthan Royals to notch up a 31-run victory over Rajasthan Royals in IPL V was very satisfying.

Rahane rated the 66-ball innings as one of his best and also praised new skipper Rahul Dravid, whom he considers his role model.

"Yes, I am bit disappointed for missing a hundred but a match winning 98 is also satisfying. I don't rate it as my best knock but certainly it one of the best. My 61 against England was also equally good innings," Rahane said after the match on Friday night.

"Regarding the wicket the ball was coming nicely on to the bat and stroke making was easy. Skipper Rahul Dravid was a source of inspiration. It is proud moment for me to bat with him as he has been my idol," said Rahane.

Rahane said Dravid and he didn't have any particular plan and just looked to stitch a long opening partnership.

"There were no defined role for us and I was striking the ball well so he was giving me more of the strike and I too would have done so had I been not in good touch," he said.

"Our plan was to put up a good opening partnership and had decided to bat on at least till the first power play. We were not having any particular plan but thinking of just one ball at a time.
