Team India’s star opener on the first day of the first match of the three-match Test series being played against South Africa at Centurion’s Super Sports Park. KL Rahul created a flurry of records by scoring a brilliant century. At the time of writing the news, KL Rahul was batting on 111 runs in 228 balls, in which he hit 14 fours and 1 six.
With this, KL Rahul has become the third visiting batsman in the world to score a century in Tests in England and Australia, including South Africa. Before him, this feat has been done by former Pakistan opener Saeed Anwar and West Indies cricket team’s fierce opener Chris Gayle.
Apart from South Africa, Rahul has scored 2 Test centuries in England and 1 Test century in Australia. That is, he has scored a century in three of the SENA (South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia) countries. However, he has not yet played Test cricket in New Zealand.
Not only this, 29-year-old KL Rahul has also become the second Indian opener after 2006 to score a Test century in South Africa. Earlier, former opener Wasim Jaffer had hit a hundred there.
