The 23-year-old New Zealand cricketer Rachin Ravindra has stunned the cricket world as the left-handed batter is one of the strongest performers with the bat at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. In their last league stage game of the tournament, Ravindra set up a new record for most runs in the ODI World Cup debut.

Sri Lanka were the last challenging team for New Zealand in the round-robin stage at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, which was a must-win game for the Blackcaps to qualify for the Semi-finals. While the Blackcaps easily defeated Sri Lanka, Rachin Ravindra once again played a solid role with the bat.

After New Zealand bowled out Sri Lanka for only 171 runs, they chased down the target in 23.2 overs after losing five wickets. Opener Ravindra scored 42 runs in 34 balls with the help of three fours and three sixes, while he had an 86-run partnership (12.2 overs) with Devon Conway (45) for the opening wicket.

With that 42-run knock, Ravindra has scored 565 runs at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. Starting this competition with a brilliant unbeaten match-winning century knock against the defending champions England, the left-handed batter has hit three centuries and two half-centuries in the league stage of this tournament.

While Ravindra made his international cricket debut in September 2021, and his ODI debut last March, the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 in India is his first Cricket World Cup experience. During the match against Sri Lanka, Ravindra surpassed the English cricketer Jonny Bairstow’s record for the most runs in the ODI World Cup debut and set up a new record.

During his first ICC Cricket World Cup experience in 2019, Bairstow set up the record with 532 runs.
