However, that did not stop KL Rahul as he continued the onslaught on the Kiwi bowlers. He timed his innings to perfection as it never looked like he was taking any risks, He completed his 4th ODI ton and finally lost his wicket when the team’s score read 269/4.

The right-handed batsman also stitched a century partnership with statemate Manish Pandey as the duo rescued the Indian innings and took the total near 300.
