Ajinkya Rahane was one of the top run-scorers for India in the previous New Zealand tour of India with 347 runs to his name. It was Rahane’s only series against New Zealand in India and the upcoming home series will be his second series against New Zealand.

His highest score of 188 in tests came back in 2016 in the home series against New Zealand and he will be aiming to break the record in the upcoming series. His personal form has been under question and the captaincy might just be a big boost to him.
