KL Rahul looks promising with the way he is captaining his Punjab team. The emerging youngster who missed victory in the first match by just 1 run, defeated Kohli’s RCB comfortably. The 132 runs scored by him with just 69 deliveries, helped his team to post a massive 206 runs as target to the opponents. Failing to score the target, RCB got all out for 109 runs.
Rahul received accolades from all the directions of cricket fraternity for his fearless innings. Rahul’s 132 became the highest score by an individual who belong to Indian cricket team. He also became the first batsman to score century in this 13th edition of IPL. Along with many fans and cricketing legends, Team Chennai Super Kings also appreciated the 28 year old youngster.
“Whattey Khel, Rahul!!” ( What a sport, Rahul) wrote the team to appreciate his innings and captaincy. Check out the tweet below :

Kannur Lokesh Rahul, widely known as KL Rahul is a Karnataka based cricketer. He became the first Indian to score a century on One Day International debut, and became the third Indian to score a century in all three formats of international cricket.
Being a South Indian, Rahul know Tamil language very well as we have witnessed Murali Vijay interacting with him in Tamil in a test match that took place in the year 2018. Players of India would often use regional language to interact with each other on field in order to avoid foreign opponents understanding their game plans.
