Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey struck centuries

With his place in the Indian test team being under scrutiny, it was extremely important for Mumbai batter Ajinkya Rahane to get some runs under his belt in this ongoing Ranji Trophy and he did just that in the game against Saurashtra. He scored 129 runs, which might have helped his case in terms of securing his place in the national setup.
