KL Rahul, who took India to their target without breaking a sweat gave his gratitude to all the fans. Rahul was getting off to starts but he was not able to make a big score.

Thus, the flamboyant batsman grabbed his chance with both his hands in his first match on England soil. In fact, he was able to hit the ground running from the word go.

Rahul played some delightful strokes in his innings as he rushed to 101 off just 54 balls. Thus, he took India to a comfortable win with eight wickets and 10 balls to spare.

Rahul had scored a truckload of runs in the recent Indian Premier League. Consequently, he was batting at the top of his game. Furthermore, he also scored a fine fifty against Ireland in the second T20I.

Therefore, this innings would have acted as a shot in the arm for the Karnataka batsman.

Moreover, Rahul also gave credit to his teammate Kuldeep Yadav who was given the Man of the match award for his fifer. In fact, Yadav was able to get India back into the contest as England had got off to a good start.
