KL Rahul has received a lot of criticism lately due to his continuous low scores. Despite his subpar international performance, there are high hopes for him as the captain of the Lucknow Super Giants in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. In a recent match versus Punjab Kings, he scored 74 points. He appeared to be in fine shape against the reigning champion Gujarat Titans on Saturday in an IPL 2023 game played in Lucknow.
Rahul accomplished a significant feat during his innings. Rahul smashed Mohammed Shami for a four on the fourth ball of LSG’s 136-run chase against GT to surpass 7000 runs in T20s.
Rahul is the first Indian player to reach the milestone in fewer than 200 innings in T20 play. It took Rahul 197 innings to reach the milestone. Virat Kohli completed the feat in 212 innings, becoming him the next player to do it. In 246 innings, Shikhar Dhawan is the third Indian to reach 7000 T20 runs. Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, scored more than 7000 runs in T20s in 258 innings.
Speaking of the game, Hardik Pandya led the way with a 50-ball 66, but Gujarat Titans’ IPL match against Lucknow Super Giants on Saturday ended with a modest total of 135 for six due to sluggish middle-over batting. towards order to establish the groundwork, Wriddhiman Saha made 47 off 37 balls, but Hardik was unable to get going for the majority of his innings, despite the fact that he somewhat made up for the slow batting with some big hits towards the end.
