Kings XI are now placed seventh in the points table and their chances to qualify for the playoffs are getting harder day by day. They lost the match against Mumbai Indians by three runs which in turn affected their chances. But one man stood and delivered irrespective of middle-order failures. None other than KL Rahul.
Picked for 11 crores in the auctions by Zinta & Co. He has justified his price tag and his stellar performances paved way for their massive wins this season. He is now the owner of the orange cap with 652 runs. He also tops the chart for maximum sixes with 32.
Meanwhile, his gesture after the match against Mumbai is really heartwarming. Rahul scored 94 off 60 deliveries with 10 boundaries and three huge sixes. He has adjudged the Fbb Stylish player of the match for his knock. After receiving the trophy, KL gave his trophy to the fans seated in a stand. The fans caught it and in turn wished him all the best in his future endeavours.
Not only this one, his jersey exchange with star all-rounder Hardik Pandya was a great sight to watch in the middle of the ground. KL also made it into the limited overs squads for the England tour and he will be looking forward to using this opportunity to announce his comeback in the shorter formats.
Kings XI will be facing Chennai Super Kings in a must-win situation in the last league game of the season on May 20 at Pune.
You don't just casually throw your trophy towards the crowd until and unless you are KL Rahul! . Because at the end of the day, the innings last night didn't matter a bit to this man.. . What we can say is that we absolutely loved the knock and in times to come, he will more often find himself on the winning side given the form that he is in and the talent that he possesses! 👌 ❤ . . . . . . . #ChinUp #KeepTheBelief #KLR #RahulKL
