KL Rahul brought out his piece de resistance in the opening match of India’s tour to England. In fact, this is the maiden tour for the flamboyant right-hander.
However, KL Rahul showed no signs of nervousness in his first match on England soil. The right-hander scored a fine 101 off just 54 balls to help India win the match by eight wickets and 10 balls to spare. Rahul scored 10 fours and five maximums in his blistering innings. Thus, Rahul made the most of his good form as he scored his second T20I hundred.
Meanwhile, KL Rahul played a fine flick shot that sailed over the boundary ropes for a maximum. It also impressed Indian skipper who was sitting in the dugout.
In fact, Rahul shot over the deep square leg boundary was reminiscent of Yuvraj’s Singh shot against Brett Lee when the southpaw scored 70 off just 30 balls in the semifinal of the 2007 World T20I. However, Singh’s six had carried a long distance when he was at the peak of his powers.
Meanwhile, Kuldeep Yadav was able to turn the tide in India’s favor. India’s chinaman spinner scalped five wickets and gave away only 24 wickets. In fact, the hosts had got off to a good start but Kuldeep was able to get his team back on the track.
Kuldeep was able to land his deliveries in the right place. Furthermore, the wrist spinner was able to get help from the Old Trafford pitch. He also took three wickets in an over to put England on the sword. However, there was no way England could have made a comeback after Kuldeep pulverized the host’s batting attack.
