Teams Played For
New Zealand U19, New Zealand A, Wellington, New Zealand XI
Gathering steam around the world even before making his international debut, Rachin Ravindra is a 21-year old batting all-rounder for the Blackcaps. Another Kiwi of Indian origin, Ravindra is a rookie allrounder with a mature head on his young shoulders.
Since making his first-class debut a little over two years ago, on an A tour against Pakistan in the UAE, Ravindra has racked up impressive numbers as a top-order batsman with three first-class centuries and nine half-centuries in 26 games. At the age of 16, he was the youngest kiwi to take part in the 2016 U-19 World Cup in Bangladesh.
Also a handy left-arm spinner, Ravindra was born to Indian parents in Wellington and caught the fancy of New Zealand Cricket’s talent spotters since his Under-19 days - having represented the country in 2016 and 2018 Youth World Cup.
Ravindra hit a century for New Zealand A against the West Indies just on the eve of the selection into the squad for the two-Test series against England, to be followed by the World Test Championship final against India.
