Coming back to cricket, Ajinkya Rahane was all set to represent his new team Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020 that has been suspended indefinitely as of now due to the global pandemic. The Mumbai cricketer was roped in by the Delhi franchise in the IPL 2020 auctions that were held in December last year after he was released by the 2008 winners Rajasthan Royals.
Rahane is currently Team India's Test specialist as he now only features in the game's longest format. He has not represented the Men In Blue in the limited-overs after the South Africa series in early 2018 where he had registered half-centuries in all of the six ODI matches. In ICC events, he was a part of the Indian squad in ICC T20 World Cups 2014 (runners-up), and 2016 (semi-finalists) as well as ICC Cricket World Cup (semi-finalists) and the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 (runners-up) respectively.
