Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane is the Mr Dependable of the Indian middle-order. One of the most successful Indian batsman on foreign shores, with an average of 53 outside the subcontinent, Rahane showed his true class in the third and final Test of the three-game series against South Africa in Johannesburg. On a venomous track, the batsman hit a match-winning 48 in the second innings as India won the game by 63 runs. Rahane will look to once again let the bat do the talking in the upcoming 5-match series, having already shown his skills with two fifties and a hundred on the tour of 2014.
