KL Rahul always rocks with his bat so far in this season and today in the match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad established a new record of 5000 runs in T20 matches.
The Punjab Kings and the Sunrisers Hyderabad might be the two bottom-placed sides right now, but in the IPL, if the top teams can provide gripping entertainment.
Today, in the match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad Rahul achieved the 5000 milestone by hitting single on the ball of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. And after completing 5000 runs, he became the fastest Indian to reach the landmark surpassing Virat Kohli (167 innings).
Last year, Rahul registered his best score in IPL by smashing 132* vs RCB. This is also the best score by a KXIP batsman in an innings in IPL. He also broke the record of the most runs scored by an Indian batsman in an IPL match.
