It was an innings that gave India a chance to tie the game and keep the series alive.
#2. 127 against South Africa at Delhi
When the majority of the other batsmen failed, Rahane took the charge.
India were struggling at 139 for 6 until Jadeja and Ashwin came in to help Rahane.
But, in the end, it was his 127 that made all the difference, and rescued India from a dangerous scenario.
#1. 103 against England at Lord
India were put in to bat on a track that was so green that it was difficult to distinguish it from the lush field, and they were up against an England bowling attack led by James Anderson and Stuart Broad
And, with the exception of Rahane, every Indian batsman failed to get going.
Given that every other batsman in the top eight failed to go past the 30run mark, his second century was certainly his greatest.
But Rahane stayed tall, scoring 103 to help India reach 295 in the first innings, which was crucial in their historic victory at Lord’s after 28 years.
