In the present Indian team, the right-handed batsman Ajinkya Rahane plays a very crucial role in Indian Test top-middle-order batting. The calm character is known for his classic shots and has the ability to change his batting strategy according to the situation. He is not very famous for his power-hitting but his batting style is beautiful enough to attract the cricket fans.

Rahane, who is still active in Test cricket, has the home Test batting average of 39.28 (1493 runs in 42 innings), but his away Test batting average is 45.16 (2710 runs in 67 innings). The right-handed batsman has hit four home Test centuries and seven away Test centuries.
