First, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer toyed with the Australian bowling attack with a partnership of over 200 runs for the second wicket. Later on, skipper KL Rahul joined the party in style after Gill and Iyer completed their centuries. After Shreyas Iyer got trapped by Sean Abbott, Rahul walked in to join Shubman Gill who got his sixth hundred for the Men in Blue on Sunday at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore.
The second ODI between India and Australia saw some brilliant batting from the Indian lineup and there was one moment when Rahul got the crowd roaring with a monstrous stroke which ended up at the stadium roof. The umpires had to ask for a different ball after that shot off Cameron Green from KL Rahul got out of the stadium.

After Rahul’s montrous hit, commentators along with the crowd went crazy and one was even heard saying ‘that is the KL Rahul we know from the IPL – Fearless and Dangerous’. Rahul coming in at number 5 and smoking the Australians like he did in this clash is a big positive for India.
