Another chasing masterclass from the man who eats international hundreds for breakfast/lunch/dinner Virat Kohli, but how good was Ajinkya Rahane? Given his pedigree, a few more knocks of this kind, and India may finally find an solution to the No. 4 conundrum! #INDvSA

2019 World Cup is in England and Ajinkya Rahane chose the South Africa series to make his claim and mark No.4 as his territory. This innings of his makes things even more interesting.
