Team India’s stand-in skipper KL Rahul continued his emphatic form in the second ODI against Australia on Sunday, September 24 at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. He slammed a monstrous six off Cameron Green during the innings, which went out of the Holkar Stadium.
KL Rahul walked out to bat at number four, after Shreyas Iyer’s dismissal. The stage was set for the wicket-keeper batter after Iyer and Gill’s 200-run stand. Rahul got going slamming Adam Zampa for a six over long-on. He bettered it up with a 94m six against Cameron Green.
The spectacular hit came during the thirty-fifth over of the Indian innings. Cameron Green bowled a length delivery to KL Rahul, who got into a good position and smacked the ball over deep mid-wicket for a huge six. The ball travelled all the way and sailed over the roof of the stadium, leaving the fans amazed.
