Rachin Ravindra has displayed his exceptional batting prowess by achieving his second century in the ongoing ICC Cricket ODI World Cup 2023 match against Australia. This thrilling encounter is taking place at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala, with New Zealand chasing a formidable target of 389 runs.

Rachin Ravindra’s brilliant century against Australia

Ravindra’s remarkable century came off just 77 deliveries. He entered the crease after the Kiwis lost their first wicket, Devon Conway, with the score at 61 runs in 7.2 overs. Ravindra went on to score a magnificent 116 runs from 89 balls, a splendid innings that included nine boundaries and five powerful sixes. Ravindra achieved this remarkable milestone by dispatching a massive six off the bowling of Glenn Maxwell.

Joins the ranks of big players from New Zealand

This incredible feat elevated him to the esteemed position of being the fourth New Zealand batter to record two centuries in a single edition of the World Cup, joining the ranks of Glenn Turner, Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson. His outstanding batting display showcased his prowess and solidified his reputation as a formidable contributor to the New Zealand cricket team’s success in the tournament.

Australia’s innings

In this current contest, New Zealand, captained by Tom Latham, chose to field after winning the toss, and their opponents, the Aussies, were sent in to bat first. Travis Head marked his return to international cricket after recovering from a hand injury with a brilliant century. David Warner also made a significant contribution with 81 runs, but the Australian middle order faced challenges. Although Maxwell and Pat Cummins played quickfire innings, they couldn’t propel Australia beyond the 400-run mark, and they were eventually bowled out for 388 runs in 49.2 overs.
