A video of Ajinkya Rahane speaking to the press after the Rajasthan Royals – Kings XI Punjab match at Jaipur.

 

Ajinkya Rahane struck a 66-ball innings of 98 but was disappointed to miss out a hundred by a whiske.

 

However he was satisfied that his match winning 98-run knock helped Rajasthan Royals to notch up a 31-run victory over Kings XI Punjab in IPL V was very satisfying.

 

Asked how far this knock would help him to earn a place in the Indian Team, Rahane said: “IPL is a big platform and performance in it is closely watched in other countries too. I want to give my 100 per cent in every match.

“Jaipur has been lucky for me and I had made a few good scores here including a ton in Irani Trophy. I wish to be more consistent and play long innings,” he added.
