Asia Cup 2023: KL Rahul made a big record in terms of runs, equaled Virat Kohli


A fierce competition continues between India and Pakistan in the Asia Cup (Asia Cup 2023). In this match, Team India is batting first. On behalf of India, in this match, captain Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill batted brilliantly and scored half-centuries. Whereas KL Rahul, who returned to Team India after a long time, has made a big record in his name with his return. Actually, in the match against Pakistan, he has completed 2 thousand runs of his ODI career.

KL Rahul completed 2 thousand ODI runs

Indian team's star wicketkeeper batsman KL Rahul has made his comeback match against Pakistan quite memorable. He has become India's joint third fastest batsman to score 2,000 ODI runs. KL Rahul achieved this feat in his 53rd ODI innings. Before Rahul, Virat Kohli had also completed 2 thousand international runs in his 53rd ODI innings. Interestingly, when Rahul achieved this feat, Virat Kohli himself was standing at the non-striker ender.

If we look at the list of Indian batsmen who have scored the fastest 2000 runs in ODI format, Shikhar Dhawan comes first in this list. He touched this figure in 48 innings. Navjot Singh Sidhu and former Indian captain and veteran batsman Sourav Ganguly come jointly at second place. Both of them had completed 2 thousand ODI runs in their 52 innings. KL Rahul would now like to play a big innings against Pakistan to make his comeback more memorable. Rahul has got a chance in today's match in place of Shreyas Iyer who is out of the team due to a back injury.
