IPL 2020: 5 Legends Who May Have To Stay Away From Playing XI Throughout The Tournament
Ajinkya Rahane (Delhi Capitals)
Ajinkya Rahane, the Test vice-captain of the Indian national cricket team, is the best in extended format but when it comes to limited-overs, he has not been able to give consistent performance.
Ahead of the IPL 2020 auction, Rajasthan Royals traded the veteran to Delhi Capitals. The arrival of Ajinkya Rahane will help to overcome the lack of experience in Delhi Capitals. But as far as the balance of the Delhi Capitals team is concerned, the big question is raising that where Rahane will be fit in the Playing XI.
The Delhi Capitals have two openers in the form of Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw. In such a situation, Rahane may have to continue without playing the entire season.
