The stormy batting of the Indian team was seen in the first T20 match played against Australia in Mohali. Legendary batsmen like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli proved to be unsuccessful, but the team’s vice-captain KL Rahul did wonders here. KL Rahul played a stormy innings of 55 runs here and it rained on the Australian bowlers.
KL Rahul, who came to the opening, started scoring runs quickly from the beginning and continued the rain of runs from one side. In his 35-ball innings, KL Rahul scored 55 runs, which included 4 fours and 3 sixes. KL Rahul’s strike rate was also more than 157 here, which is very much discussed.
During his innings, KL Rahul also hit a brilliant six while flicking, which everyone was surprised to see. This shot of KL Rahul can be counted as one of the best shots in a long time.
How about that for a SIX!Advertisement
