India’s Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane had a memorable English County debut, scoring a hundred for Hampshire against Nottinghamshire in a Division One game on Wednesday.

Third Indian

Rahane became the third Indian to score a hundred on county debut after Piyush Chawla, for Sussex against Worcestershire, and M. Vijay for Essex against Nottinghamshire.

Rahane, who had scored 10 in the first innings, struck a patient 119 off 260 balls, hit 14 boundaries and shared a 257-run stand for the third wicket with Sam Northeast who also made a hundred.

Rahane came in at No. 3 in the fifth over of the innings and was dismissed by off-spinner Matthew Carter at the stroke of tea in the 70th over.
