IND vs AUS: 10 Best Memes On KL Rahul After His Thumping Comeback

kl Rahul ind vs aus

KL Rahul played a brilliant knock and answered his critics in a thumping way. 

While at one end Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli failed to deliver against the mighty Aussies, the T20 World champions, India will be happy to see KL Rahul find back his mojo. And he did in some style.

And even though he had scored a fifty against Afghanistan in India’s last match in the Asia Cup - in a dead rubber against an exhausted bowling attack that had played a game the previous day - KL Rahul will be much more satisfied with his knock today.

There had been questions and criticism toward KL Rahul regarding his strike rate - questions which he’d tackled gracefully in the pre-series press conference on Monday. Then, on Tuesday, he answers those with the bat in Mohali, creaming 55 runs off 35 balls with the help of 4 fours and 3 sixes.

KL Rahul was in full flow today

After facing just 4 balls for 3 runs, KL Rahul stepped out to the ever-immaculate Josh Hazlewood and smoked him over mid-wicket for a thumping six to dazzle the crowd and the fans. And even as skipper Rohit Sharma got out in that over, KL Rahul didn’t abstain from playing his shots.

In the next over, he sliced Adam Zampa over point with an inside-out shot before seeing Kohli get out, but Suryakumar Yadav took on the tempo with a couple of hits to the fence off Cummins.

After settling down, being 25 off 17 balls, Rahul began to play aggressively and took down Australia’s weak links in the bowling attack, Cameron Green -with a six over backward square leg and a four over cover- and Glenn Maxwell - a slog over mid-wicket.

KL Rahul brought up his fifty off 32 balls with a nice, rousing ovation from the Mohali crowd and the Indian team, signalling his return to his best. He departed soon, though, mistiming a whip to a knuckleball from Hazlewood and Ellis took the catch in the deep on the leg side.
