Blessed with impeccable technique, Rahane's game is well-suited for all three formats.
But much like his idol Rahul Dravid, the 28-year-old shines brightest in Test cricket.
In the last couple of years, he has played several key knocks for India in testing conditions.
His best and most memorable hundred though came in 2014 on his Lord's debut.
Rahane's 103 in the first innings helped India register a very special win over England at the home of cricket.
On the happy occasion of his birthday, here is that special innings from a very special player.
