IPL 2020: Ajinkya Rahane Likely To Join Delhi Capitals

India Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane is all set to leave Rajasthan Royals and play for Delhi Capitals in the next edition of the Indian Premier League. The trading will be completed by Thursday before the transfer window closes. It has been reported that the Royals would likely include two Delhi Capitals players in return. Delhi Capitals have been in talks with Royals for a few months now to acquire Rahane and add solidity to their batting. When negotiations first began, Sourav Ganguly, who thinks of Rahane as an all-format player, was still an advisor with Delhi Capitals.

He will be sharing his batting line-up in which the top-order includes Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw and the middle-order has the skipper Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Hanuma Vihari. Rahane had reasons to feel unhappy with RR after he was kept as a skipper for eight games in the last season before Steve Smith was handed over the job.

Rahane has a price tag of Rs. 4 crores. He will be getting a chance to work under the guidance of head coach Ricky Ponting and also his personal coach Pravin Amre, a talent scout with the Delhi franchise.

Since 2011, He had been with Rajasthan Royals. He led the side in 2018 as well. His IPL record is more impressive than his international white-ball numbers, with 3,820 runs at a strike rate of 122.
