KL Rahul breaks two records after Kings XI Punjab wins their match against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
It’s IPL season in India and even though the stadium looks a lot different than it normally does, the thrill and excitement are the same. The teams are all geared-up taking us on a roller-coaster of emotions as our favourites and their rival teams battle it out on the pitch with their hits and misses. The one player who’s been in focus since the yesterday’s match is the Captain of Kings XI Punjab, KL Rahul.
KL Rahul became the first cricketer to make a century in the new season of IPL. Apart from being the highest of the season, his score also became the highest by any captain in the entire IPL tournament. KL Rahul was able to contribute in his team’s win with a 132 not-out to set his side up for a huge 206-3 from the 20 overs bowled by Royal Challengers Bangalore.
