IPL 2020, KXIP v/s RCB, KL Rahul, an Indian cricketer scores the highest score. It was his second century in Indian Premier League. While playing for Kings XI Punjab against Royal Challengers Bangalore. He scored 132 score within 62 balls with 7 sixes.
This is the highest score by an Indian in IPL history and the highest score by an IPL captain KL Rahul. On the way to his century, Rahul also became the fastest Indian batsman to reach 2000 runs in the IPL reaching the milestone in his 60th innings. Chris Gayle is the fastest to 2000 runs in IPL, having reached the mark in 48 innings.
However, the 28-year-old batsman was lucky as his India teammate and opposite number Virat Kohli gave Rahul two lifelines. He dropped Rahul twice in the deep, once-off Steyn, and then again off Navdeep Saini.
KXIP had slowed down after the wickets of Pooran (17) and Glenn Maxwell (5) but Rahul showed aggression towards the death, hitting both short and full deliveries form Steyn and Dube deep into the stands at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
