Team India star batsman KL Rahul turned 28 on Saturday. The last year has seen Rahul’s career go through a few lows before he emerged as an integral part of India’s limited-overs batting lineup. He was the top performer for India in their last limited-overs assignment before the coronavirus pandemic halted cricketing events across the world.
Rahul scored 221 runs in the five-match T20 International series while he accumulated 204 runs in the One-Day Internationals during India’s tour of New Zealand earlier this year.
The right-handed batsman made his Test debut back in 2014, but he had to wait for another two years to make it to the limited-overs squad.
On his ODI debut against Zimbabwe, KL Rahul became the first Indian batsman to score a century in his first game for the country in the 50-overs format.
