Certainly, the failing top-order batsmen had built up quite a pressure on the Indian side before KL Rahul took charge. According to Indian media reports, the national openers Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal got bowled early. However, on captain Virat Kohli’s entry at third, the fans were a bit relieved but unexpectedly, he also couldn’t save the drowning boat.

After Virat Kohli was sent back to the pavilion, India’s Shreyas Iyer partnered up with Prithvi Shaw which earned a total of 62 runs. Eventually, Shaw’s wrong angle cost him his wicket which then brought the ‘run machine’ KL Rahul. Starting from 62, Rahul then scored his knocking fourth century (all formats) and his first one in the ODI format.
