Four fifty in the last four innings
KL Rahul has been unfit continuously since IPL 2022. Sometimes due to injury and sometimes due to Kovid-19, he was out of Team India for a long time.

After that he is scoring runs continuously.
After Australia, KL Rahul also played strong innings in the South Africa T20 series. He has scored four half-centuries in the last four innings including warm-up matches. During this his strike rate has also been tremendous. Let us inform that KL Rahul has so far scored 2137 runs in 66 T20 matches at a batting average of 39.57. His strike rate is 140.40. He has scored two centuries and 20 half-centuries in T20Is.
