In England’s World Cup 2023 opener against New Zealand at Narendra Modi Stadium, Rachin Ravindra defied expectations with a sensational batting performance. Partnering with the experienced Devon Conway, the duo aggressively took on the England bowlers during New Zealand’s chase of 283 in Ahmedabad.

Devon Conway, drawing on his extensive experience in Indian conditions with Chennai Super Kings, became the first player since Virat Kohli and Virender Sehwag in 2011 to achieve a century in a World Cup opening match. His century, crafted with class, unfolded in just 83 balls, setting the tone for the tournament.

Following closely, Rachin Ravindra reached his maiden ODI hundred in only his 13th match and on his World Cup debut, contributing significantly to New Zealand’s dominant position. Rachin’s aggressive approach, with 4 sixes and 9 boundaries, showcased his versatility against both spin and pace. Notably, his century followed a strong performance of 97 against Pakistan in a warm-up match in Hyderabad.

Stepping in at No. 3 after the early loss of opener Will Young, Rachin replaced the absent Kane Williamson, adding pressure to the England bowling attack. His aggressive style, which included a variety of shots, kept New Zealand comfortably ahead of the required run rate, leading to a convincing victory over defending champions England.

Rachin Ravindra‘s remarkable achievement marked him as the youngest New Zealand batter to hit a World Cup century, and he became the 13th youngest overall to achieve this feat. In contrast to Conway’s celebration, Rachin expressed his joy more vividly, removing his helmet to absorb the applause from the dressing room and the fans at the iconic stadium.

The historic innings also earned Rachin a place among the youngest New Zealand batters to hit World Cup tons, at the age of 23 years and 301 days. This achievement placed him ahead of notable names like Nathan Astle and Chris Harris in the record books.
