I want to be the biggest match-winner for India: Ajinkya Rahane

New Delhi: Ajinkya Rahane, India's most prolific run-scorer in Test cricket in last one year or so, says he wants to be the biggest match-winner for his country.

“My goal is to become the world’s best batsman. I want to India’s best and world’s best. I want to be the biggest match-winner for India,” Rahne told The Indian Express.

The understated demeanor of 'Jinx' stands out among his peers who are quite aggressive and animated on-and-off the field.

When it comes to values, the 27-year-old gave the entire credit to his parents.

“My papa would take me in his cycle to school or to practice. There was no money to go in auto. They (mother and father) would fore-go their own personal expenses and give me," he said.

“I used to play with same socks in a few practice sessions. Now when I am playing for India and doing well, I always go back to that background and remember the values,” added Rahane.
