KL Rahul has announced his arrival in the Indian Premier League 2020 season with his 17th career half-century as his side Kings XI Punjab took on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Dubai on Thursday.
Rahul took 36 balls to reach the mark and slammed seven boundaries and a huge six over the cover before reaching the milestone.
It has also been a day of double delight for the KXIP skipper as he also becomes the fastest Indian to reach 2000 mark in IPL, surpassing none other than the great Sachin Tendulkar. Rahul took just 59 innings to reach the feat.
By the time KL Rahul reached his 50, KXIP were 95/1 in 11.2 overs.
