From opening the innings to playing in the middle order and fulfilling the wicket-keeping duties, is there anything that KL Rahul cannot pull off at this moment? He is currently in his best-ever form and fans are loving every bit of his brilliant performances. He has impressed one and all with his stunning performances off-lately.
After scoring back-to-back three fifties in T20Is and one ODI century as an opener since December, KL Rahul is now taking down on Australia in the ongoing ODI series. In the second ODI match, KL Rahul scored 80 from just 52 balls to help India balance the level of the series.
Besides his amazing batting performance, KL Rahul took a sharp stumping to get rid of Australia captain Aaron Finch and made everyone miss the legendary wicket-keeper, MS Dhoni.
Well, the lightning-fast stumping happened in the 16th over of Australia’s run chase which was bowled by Ravindra Jadeja. On the first delivery of 16th over, Ravindra Jadeja bowled a flighted delivery outside off stump. Aaron Finch tried to smash the ball by playing a cover drive, however, KL Rahul caught him and dislodged the bails within the blink of an eye.
KL Rahul’s brilliant stumping has started a debate on social media. Netizens are now trolling Rishabh Pant, India’s regular wicket-keeper, who has been struggling behind the stumps for a long time. He has been receiving criticism from all corners for his performances. KL Rahul’s brilliant performance has added more fuel to the fire.
Here, check out how Twitterati trolled Rishabh Pant:
