My aim is to win Ranji Trophy and play 100 test matches- Ajinkya Rahane

“I want to perform well for Mumbai, one match at a time,” Ajinkya Rahane was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times. My aim is to win the Ranji Trophy and the bigger aim is to play 100 Test matches.”

Talking about the qualities required to be successful in international cricket, Rahane said that the mindset has to be right. He said that every cricketer has more or less the same qualities but the team management focuses on good mentality. He further explained that how a cricketer deals with failure also matters in international cricket.

Rahane further said, “It is all about mentality. Your game doesn’t change suddenly. Ultimately, the batsman has to see the ball and play. But it’s about the mindset when you’re there… what you’re thinking… that’s different for each person. How you prepare, what process you follow… all these little things matter.

You can’t just think about batting and bowling. Your mindset must be right at the international level. How mentally strong you are is also important. How you handle momentum is how you handle failure. All these things matter.”
