Skipper KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock gave a strong start to the team. Lucknow had put a huge total of 199 for the struggling MI to chase. KL Rahul was the leading run-scorer for LSG scoring 103*. This class batter has reached several milestones with the excellent knock. KL Rahul scored the century in his 100th IPL match, becoming the first player to do so.

Moreover, KL is only the second cricketer to have multiple centuries as an IPL skipper. Virat Kohli with 5 centuries is the only other captain to do so. He also equaled most centuries [2] against a single opponent which happens to be MI. KL Rahul is the second-fastest to reach 100 IPL matches. In addition, he also has the second most runs before completing 100 IPL appearances. In both the above-mentioned areas, Chris Gayle stands strong at the top.

Furthermore, KL Rahul did his classic celebration. Rahul keeps his bat aside and covers both ears with his fingers. At first, fans thought he is trying to shut trolls down. However, he had clarified that he does so to shut outside noise and have a moment of calmness. And not to disrespect anyone. Today, KL Rahul had shut his ears and remained in the position. It seemed he is saying his prayers.

If LSG could win the match, the inning would become all the way more special for KL Rahul. Moreover, looking at the opponents Mumbai Indians who still haven’t won a single match, it seems pretty easy.
