KL Rahul becomes the first Indian batsman to score a fifty against 11 different opponents in T20I

KL Rahul and Surya Kumar’s sensational half centuries led India to record win in the First T20 against South Africa. Chasing a meager target of 107 Rohit Sharma’s men crossed the winning rope with 8 wickets and 20 balls to spare.

KL Rahul getting back in touch

Kl Rahul in the game against the Proteas becomes the only Indian player to have scored 50-plus runs against 11 different oppositions in T20 Internationals. Making his T20I debut in 2016, the Indian opener has a total of 19 half-centuries along with 2 centuries in the shortest format of the game.  

While most are in praise of Rahul, as he managed to anchor his innings in a crucial situation and on a bowler-friendly pitch. However, netizens are criticizing the Indian vice-captain for lack of consistency and snail-paced strike rate. Moreover, 30-year-old Rahul also created a ‘horrible record’ as his knock against the visitors becomes the slowest half-century ever scored by a batter from a Test-playing nation in a T20I match.

A few responses-

Reacting to the same fans asked head coach Rahul Dravid to drop him from the playing XI. Rather replace Rishabh Pant for the opening position.
