Team India started their England tour on a winning note. While Kuldeep Yadav picked five crucial wickets with the ball, it was KL Rahul who powered the Indian team to a thumping win with the willow.
After a brilliant IPL 2018 season, KL Rahul was given a chance to prove himself in the Indian colours across all three formats. He was a part of the historic Test against Afghanistan, where he scored a brilliant half-century and scored a useful fifty against Ireland in the second T20I before making it big against England in the first match of three-match T20I series.
The 26-year-old was given a chance to prove at the No. 3 slot and he lived up to the expectations with an unbeaten 101. He was seen a tad emotional after smashing his second T20I century. He shared the moment with the Indian skipper Virat Kohli and the big screen showed up his emotional side as he cleaned up his wet eyes.
When Kohli was asked about the same in the post-match presentation ceremony, he said “He (KL Rahul) has got a great technique, great temperament and is very hungry and today he was a bit emotional because the last century he scored was against England in Chennai and it’s been that long he’s been waiting for. It was a great century and a great sign for Indian cricket.
