Ajinkya Rahane might narrowly have fallen short of his 13th Test century on Friday, 9 June, during the World Test Championship 2023 final, but he was lionised by the Indian fans for crucial knock of 89 runs off 129 deliveries. The knock came at a time when the Indian batting unit had collapsed and they desperately needed someone to hold fort.

Notably, Rahane came out to bat when India had lost 3 wickets after scoring 50 runs. He stood his ground and built a partnership of more than 100 runs with Shardul Thakur. Carrying the baton of Indian batting, the veteran hit 11 fours and a1 six to give a major boost to the team's total.
