Kiwi Rachin Ravindra slams ton against Pakistan in ‘home ground’ – Know Details

Kiwi all-rounder Rachin Ravindra scored a ton in the PAK vs NZ contest at the World Cup in his home ground, Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengalur.

In the all-important PAK vs NZ World Cup 2023 clash, star Kiwi all-rounder Rachin Ravindra slammed a quickfire century to deflate the morale of the Pakistanis. With a semis spot on the line, local boy Rachin brought out his best game to hit a ton at a strike rate over 110. Meanwhile, this is his ton in the ongoing World Cup, with his other two coming against England (123) and Australia (116).

Unfortunately, he was out for 108 from just 94 balls. His innings consisted of 15 fours and one six. Before departing, he became the first in the history of World Cups to score three tons on tournament debut.

While many might know that Rachin’s name is a mix of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid, what the fans might not know is his Bengaluru roots. His father Ravi Krishnamurthy played club cricket in Bengaluru before moving to New Zealand. Not just that, even Rachin would fly to play club cricket in Bengaluru.

Earlier in the tournament, he had opened up about his name and Bengaluru roots. Talking to PTI, he had said, “I was born in New Zealand and my family’s from India, but I completely see myself as a Kiwi and obviously very proud of my roots and my ethnicity.”

“I have a sense of family connection whenever I’m in Bangalore. Being able to see my grandparents and stuff, so yeah, it’s pretty cool,” he added.
