After winning the “Orange Cap” in the recently ended IPL 2020, KXIP captain KL Rahul is getting ready to show some intense action for team India at the bio-secure bubble in Australia.
India’s tour consists of three ODIs, three T20Is and a four-match Test series. KL Rahul took to social media to post a video of him playing a wide array of shots against Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav & some others. He captioned the post as, “Good to be back in blue”. KL Rahul scored 670 runs from 14 matches in IPL 2020 at a strike rate of 129.34. He also scored a ton and grabbed five half-centuries. His boundary count consisted of 58 fours and 23 sixes.
Despite of his astounding show with the bat KXIP could not finish at sixth place in the league, thereby not heading to the playoffs. The first ODI on November 27 will mark the beginning of the tour. There will be two more ODIs after that, followed by a T20I series. The four-match Test series will begin on December 17.
Due to Rahul’s spectacular performance in recent matches of IPL 2020, he has been included in all three formats of Australia tour. He has also been the management’s wicketkeeper choice in their recent outings with Rishabh Pant making high-profile errors in international matches. He made his debut in the year 2014 & has scored 2006 Test Runs in 36 matches 1239 ODI runs from 32 games and 1461 T20I runs from 41 T20Is.
