KL Rahul Hits Second IPL Century Creates New Record

On Thursday, KL Rahul became the fastest Indian to score 2000 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and broke batting great Sachin Tendulkar’s eight-year-old record.

He finished unbeaten on 132 off just 69 balls with 14 fours and 7 sixes. This is the highest score by an Indian in IPL history and the highest score by an IPL captain.

Rahul achieved the mark during KXIP’s second IPL 2020 match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Dubai, UAE. He took 60 innings to break the 2k mark.

Rahul opened the innings for his team and played the anchor, adding 57 runs for the first wicket with Mayank Agarwal and 57 more with Nicholas Pooran for the second wicket.

Rahul played well smashing Steyn for three sixes and two fours in the 19th over and then hitting Shivam Dube for two sixes and a four in the final over of the innings.
