"Rahane is currently the most complete Test batsman in the country. He is brilliant both in attacking and defending. He has done well everywhere, in all the conditions whereas Virat Kohli struggled in England," said Gavaskar.

Rahane yesterday achieved the rare distinction of scoring a century in each Test innings on the fourth day of the final Test. He scored a 127 in India's first innings before hitting 100 in the second innings yesterday.
He has scored a century each in Australia, New Zealand, England and Sri Lanka before hitting two tons against South Africa here.
Gavaskar felt sorry for captain Kohli for missing out on a hundred as he was out for 88 yesterday, adding just five runs to his overnight 83.
"I feel sorry for Virat that he could not score a century at his home ground which would have been memorable. He should have got a hundred yesterday. It is not easy for anybody to start again after a break and in his case it was an overnight break," said the former India captain.
South Africa crawled to 72 runs for two from 72 overs they faced yestaerday in their second innings but Gavaskar said he was not surprised with the ultra-defensive approach of the Proteas.
