IPL 2019: Ajinkya Rahane slams 58-ball hundred, reminds not to count him out in shorter formats

Ajinkya Rahane silenced his critics with a stunning 58-ball hundred against Delhi Capitals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur on Monday. Coming into bat at the top of the innings, Rahane took time to get settled before launching a flurry of exquisite shots. He remained unbeaten on 105 off 63 balls which powered RR to 191/6. Blending panache with power, Rahane chose his favourite opponents (more 650 runs against DC) to find form. His innings drew widespread applause across the internet and here are some fo the best reactions-

Rahane’s innings was laced with 11 boundaries and three huge sixes. The captaincy switch seems to be working wonders for the Royals, as Rahane and incumbent Smith forged a 130-run stand for the second wicket.
