KL Rahul has played a knock for the ages and Twitter is loving it.
KL Rahul was 'on fire' as he smashed 132* runs off 69 balls against Royal Challengers Bangalore as he further enhanced his reputation as one of the best T20 batsmen in the world. The Kings XI Punjab captain led from the very front as he opened the innings and remained till the end to help his side post a big total of 206 for 3.
KL Rahul, who made his debut as captain in the last match, could not score big as he was out for 21 before failing to deliver in the subsequent super over. However, he did not take long to bounce back as the highest-ranked Indian T20I batsman scored his first ton as captain. He remained unbeaten on 132 off just 69 balls.
His 132-run knock also saw him become the captain with highest score in IPL. KL Rahul’s breathtaking knock was studded with 14 fours and 7 sixes.
Twitter was abuzz with praises for the Punjab captain and here are some of the tweets:
