After being dropped from the Test side in early 2022, Rahane proved his mettle with consistent performances, earning him a well-deserved spot back in the team. His return was marked by brilliant innings of 89 not out by Lunch on Day 3, which also saw him reach his 26th half-century. Rahane’s knock showcased his ability to handle pressure and contribute significantly to the team’s success. 

Joining the prestigious 5000-runs club for India, Rahane stands alongside legendary cricketers such as Kapil Dev, Gundappa Viswanath, Mohammad Azharuddin, Dilip Vengsarkar, Cheteshwar Pujara, Sourav Ganguly, Virat Kohli, Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman, Sunil Gavaskar, Rahul Dravid, and Sachin Tendulkar. This milestone reflects Rahane’s consistency and impact in the middle order of the Indian Test team.

The transformation in Rahane’s game was evident during the recent IPL 2023, where he played a crucial role for the victorious Chennai Super Kings. With 326 runs to his name, including an unbeaten knock of 71, Rahane showcased his adaptability and versatility as a batsman. CSK head coach Stephen Fleming attributed Rahane’s success to the team’s strategy of relieving him from the role of an anchor, allowing him to express himself freely on the field.
