AjinkyaRahane enthralled his fans at the Eden Garden with amazing shots as he scored 71 runs in 29 balls against the former employees of the Kolkata Night Riders on Sunday. The farmer batsman of the Kolkata Knight Riders had a field day after being discarded by the men in purple. Now Rahane has reincarnated himself into a new whole Avtar under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in Chennai Super Kings, as the veteran proved once again with his amazing performance to put CSK in the lead against KKR.
The fans were quite excited to see this new version of Rahane in a CSK jersey, as the batsman played some stunning shots during his inning. Fans were turned on by Rahane's comeback in the latest stages of his career and called him an inspiration. One fan wrote on Twitter that AjinkyaRahane is living and breathing, proving to never write anyone off; self-belief is everything. Another fan wrote, "KKR spinners are ready with their mystery." But we have the biggest mystery of the season so far: AjinkyaRahane. One more fan wrote, "We have turned AjinkyaRahane from a dependable test batsman to probably one of the best Indian batsmen in this IPL." "At this point, I won't be surprised if he scores a 40-ball 100 this season at some point."
Many of the fans were not expecting Rahane to play for the Chennai Super Kings this season, but the 34-year-old has proved that, after all, age is just a number.
