Chandigarh, November 14

It was said that Rachin Ravindra was named after two Indian cricket icons -- Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar, whom he idolises.

Also, there was a popular story that his first name Rachin was derived from 'Ra' of Rahul Dravid and 'chin' of Sachin Tendulkar.

However, his father Ravi Krishnamurthy said: “When Rachin was born, my wife suggested the name, and we didn't spend a lot of time discussing it," reports The Print.

Ravindra has at the post-match press conference said : “I was born in New Zealand and my family's from India, but I completely see myself as a Kiwi and obviously very proud of my roots and my ethnicity,” adding that: “I think those two (Dravid and Tendulkar) are pretty special cricketers.

“Being able to watch a lot of their highlights and stuff… obviously, I idolise Sachin Tendulkar, I think a lot of people do. I think the way he batted, his technique was beautiful to watch.”
