“I think the first plan is to come back in ODI cricket. I don’t generally talk about my records but I think an important factor is my record is actually really good over the last 3-4 years before I was dropped,” Rahane instructed India Today.

“Whether it’s opening the batting or at No. 4, my record was very good, my strike rate again was very good. I think my aim is to come back into the ODI set-up. I don’t when the opportunity will come but I have to work hard, I am working really hard on all the aspects. I am really confident about myself. It’s all about having the self-belief and being positive, being fearless.”

In 2014, Rahane emerged as an incredible makeshift opener for India within the absence of an injured Rohit Sharma. He scored a few important half-centuries within the Asia Cup that year and a terrific century towards England at Edgbaston.

Against Australia in 2017, Rahane scored 4 half-centuries in a row and adopted it with a 79 towards South Africa within the first ODI of a six-match series, however he was proven the door solely three low scores later. Even when India have been desperately in want of a No. 4 batsman forward of the World Cup, Rahane was ignored.

“I don’t have to prove it to anyone. Yes, IPL is the best platform. I don’t have to prove to anyone, it’s all about playing with freedom and playing for my team and doing well for my team,” Rahane added.

“If I contribute to my team, I think other factors will happen automatically. That said, my records in ODI before I was dropped was very good. I am not thinking about proving to anyone. Working hard on my game and keeping improving day by day and being positive is what I am planning to do.”
