Cricket is an unpredictable game. Rachin Ravindra turned out to be a hero in India vs New Zealand’s match in Kanpur test series as he disrupted India’s chances of winning the game. Ravindra was born to Indian parents in Wellington, New Zealand and is currently breaking the internet for playing an enormous performance in the match.


His name ‘Rachin’ is inspired by two legendary former Indian cricketers - ‘Ra’ from Rahul Dravid’s name and ‘chin’ from Sachin Tendulkar’s name.


The 22-year-old has joined the list of Indian-origin cricketers to play for the Black Caps, namely, Deepak Patel, Ish Sodhi, Jeetan Patel, Jeet Raval, Ajaz Patel, Ronnie Hira, and Tarun Nethula.


Rachin Ravindra was also part of the New Zealand squad which defeated India to win the inaugural World Test Championship in Southampton, earlier this year. He was part of New Zealand's squads for the 2016 Under-19 Cricket World Cup and the 2018 Under-19 Cricket World Cup. He made his List A debut for New Zealand A against Pakistan A on 21 October 2018. In April 2021, Ravindra was named in New Zealand's Test squad for their series against England, and for the final of 2019–21 ICC World Test Championship. In November 2021, Ravindra was named in New Zealand's Test squad for their series against India. He made his Test debut on 25 November 2021, for New Zealand against India.
