IPL 2019 (RR vs DC): Cricketing world reacts as Ajinkya Rahane smashes his second IPL century

Posted On / /

Rajasthan Royals (RR) opening batsman Ajinkya Rahane slammed his second IPL century during the game against Delhi Capitals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Monday.

Rahane reached the three-figure mark off 58 balls with a brace off Ishant Sharma. He smashed 11 fours and three sixes during his innings – 105 not out off 63 balls.

Rahane’s knock came close on the heels of him being replaced by Steve Smith as Rajasthan Royals captain. The Aussie cricketer was appointed as the skipper last year but he had to make way for Rahane in the wake of Australia’s ball-tampering scandal in Capetown.

Rahane’s maiden IPL hundred before this game came against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in 2012 when he racked up 103 off 60 balls including 12 fours and five sixes. RR won that match by 59 runs.
