Ajinkya Rahane Joins Delhi Capitals

Rahane played over 100 games for Rajasthan Royals and led them in 24 matches

Indian batsman Ajinkya Rahane bids farewell to Rajasthan Royals as he gets traded to Delhi Capitals. Mayank Markande and Rahul Tewatia will be swapped in exchange for Rahane’s place. He is the second popular Indian cricketer to move to the Capitals. 

Capitals co-owner Parth Jindal welcomes Rahane to the team. ‘I am extremely honoured to welcome one of India's most stellar and consistent batsmen, Ajinkya Rahane, to the DC family. When the franchise underwent a revamp last year, a decision was made to keep Indian players at its core’, he said.

‘The result was there for everyone to see, with the likes of Shikhar Dhawan and Ishant Sharma performing brilliantly for us, and complimenting the youth that DC has in Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw, among others’, he added.

Rahane played for the Royals in 140 IPL games from 2011 to 2015, then in 2018 and 2019 seasons of the Indian Premier League. He became captain of the team for a short time until he was replaced by Steve Smith.
