Top 3 T20Is scores for KL Rahul

110* versus West Indies

Rahul made his top score in T20Is against the reigning world champions back in 2016 when India played the Calypso Kings in a short two-match series in Lauderhill, USA. In a stiff run-chase, Rahul blasted a century and faced only 51 balls for his knock, which featured 12 fours and 5 sixes. Sadly for him and his team, they still had to end on the losing side by just 1 run.

101* versus England

KL Rahul’s next T20I hundred and second-best score came two years later when he visited England. Playing in Manchester, the batter struck an unbeaten 101 off just 54 balls, including 10 fours and 5 sixes, to seal India’s victory. Rahul’s knock helped the visitors go 1-0 up in the three-match series, which they later won 2-1.

91 versus West Indies

The next highest score also came against the West Indies, whose attack Rahul took apart for an aggressive 91 off 56 in Mumbai. Batting first on one of the truest surfaces in India, the hosts needed to post a giant score and from his end, Rahul didn’t disappoint at all. He hit 9 fours and 4 sixes in his knock and pushed his team towards victory.

KL Rahul top 5 scores in T20Is:

1. 110* versus West Indies, 2016
2. 101* versus England, 2018
3. 91 versus West Indies, 2019
