KL Rahul – A prodigy in the making
With two back-to-back hundreds in the ongoing Safi Darashah All India Tournament, KL Rahul has been making a strong case for himself in Karnataka’s cricketing folklore. All of 21, Rahul has had a fruitful run with the bat so far, notching big scores to power KSCA XI to the semi-finals of the tournament.
A right-handed opening batsman, Rahul already has a hundred and 3 fifties from 8 first-class matches and represented the Indian U-19 side in the 2010 U-19 World Cup in New Zealand.
The KSCA XI opener got off to a brilliant start in the Safi Darashah Tournament, scoring a patient 68 and ably supporting double centurion Robin Uthappa against Jharkhand CA. He then went on to score a blazing 162 on the first day of KSCA’s clash against Goa CA. The youngster displayed tremendous patience and ability, as he struck 22 fours and 3 sixes on his way to a huge score.
Rahul followed it up with another hundred, this time an unbeaten 143 to guide his side to an 8-wicket win over Rajasthan CA. The youngster showed he could cash in on his form, laying the foundation for KSCA XI’s second victory in three matches.
With the potential to amass runs aplenty and last longer than most batsmen at the crease, Rahul is a key member of his side and his consistent performances have benefited the team in more ways than one.
KL Rahul is showing good signs ahead of his first full FC season with Karnataka Ranji side.
He, along with the fab members of the Fan Advisory Board, plot new schemes to engage with fans and trouble shoot their problems.
