KL Rahul is one of the most exciting young batsmen in India. In his short international career so far, Rahul has impressed one and all with his brilliant display of batting. Rahul, many believe, is the future of Indian cricket and he will soon be regarded as one of India’s most reliable batsmen, across all three formats of the game.
Rahul also holds the record of scoring the fastest hundred by an Indian batsman in T20I cricket. In the memorable T20 match between West Indies and India in Florida, KL Rahul played one of the most destructive T20I knocks ever.
Rahul, who was included in the playing eleven ahead of Shikhar Dhawan, hit 110 not out from 51 balls. He smashed 12 fours and 5 sixes in his innings. With this knock, Rahul became only the third Indian to score a hundred in T20I cricket; Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma are the other two Indian cricketers.
Rahul reached to his 100 in 46 balls, becoming the joint second fastest in T20 Internationals along with South African Faf du Plessis and just one ball short of South African Richard Levi’s fastest 45-ball hundred against New Zealand in 2012 in Hamilton.
