KL Rahul deserves to be in this Indian Team.He deserves it !!
He's been deserving since long,but some people in the team management seem have some serious obsession with Rohit Sharma & Shikhar.What consistency have they shown to deserve the place more than KL ?#KXIPvMI #MIvKXIP pic.twitter.com/lM5YSEsjOy

Fantastic innings from KL Rahul. If #KXIP are alive in this tournament, it is because of him.

Magnificent innings from KL Rahul. He had been magnificent and feel for him but Kings 11 have simply not been good enough in the crucial phases. Mumbai owe this to Bumrah. Top spell #MIvKXIP

I would pay 17cr to KL Rahul than Kohli.

KL Rahul is the Sachin Tendulkar of the 90s. He is the best batsman amongst all and yet his team is losing. #MIvKXIP

feel so sad for KL Rahul.. what a knock ! sending Axar Patel ahead of Yuvi and Manoj Tiwary was a crime.. sad decision that has cost them the game.. credit to another Indian star, Jasprit Bumrah.. best match of the tournament so far.. #MIvsKXIP #IPL2018

Gotta really feel for KL Rahul. Insanely consistent throughout the season. Came up with special knocks more often than not. And let down by their team completely. Take a bow, Rahul ?#MIvsKXIP

What an innings from KL Rahul yet again. Backbone of Kings XI Punjab. What a guy. His unhappy face can make anyone unhappy. More than the team, Rahul deserved to win it. Has been phenomenal throughout the season.#MIvKXIP
