Over the last couple of years, KL Rahul has been in the form of his life. What started as breakout season in IPL 2019 has transformed into a dream run for the Karnataka batter as he went from struggling to find a place in the side to become the vice-captain. Barring some rare occasions, Rahul has been at his best across all formats in different roles.
Having missed out in the series opener, KL Rahul took the fight to the Kiwis in the second T20I in Ranchi. The dashing opener gave his side a rollicking start as he stitched a century and with skipper Rohit Sharma. Rahul played a stunning knock of 65 runs to set the platform for India’s series win.
WATCH: KL Rahul brings up fifty the flattest six in the history of the game
KL Rahul is one of the best batters going around in world cricket and is very easy on the eyes. His shots, though orthodox, are a treat to watch and he pulled one such spectacular shot off during the second T20I. Enroute to his 100 run stand with Rohit, the flambouynt batter hit one of the flattest sixes the game has ever witnessed.
In the 11th over of India’s chase, Rahul hit Adam Milne for a glorious six over covers. While it was not the largest of sixes, it definitely was one of the flattest. With the spectacular six, KL Rahul brought up his half-century, his fourth in the last five T20Is.
Thanks to his humongous opening stand with Rohit, India got over the line comfortably to seal a series win. Rishabh Pant smashed two sixes on the trot to take India home with 16 balls to spare. With the series conquered, India will look to experiment given the depth of the squad.
