Cricket'In my 50 years of Watching Cricket, KL Rahul's inning is …': Cricket Legend's huge praise for batter

Srinagar: Indian Cricket Legend Sunil Gavaskar has made a huge praise of batter KL Rahul after later scored an epic fighting Test century vs South Africa at Centurion.

KL Rahul’s century propelled India to 245 run total in first innings. Rahul was the last man out for India on 101 but not before he added 54 runs with the last two wickets. Resuming on 208/8, Rahul switched gears to bring up his century, leaving the likes of Sunil Gavaskar, Ravi Shastri extremely pleased.

“An innings to remember. Watching cricket for the last 50 years, but I can surely say that this hundred by Rahul is in the Top 10 centuries scored by Indians in Test cricket,” Sunil Gavaskar said after the end of the Indian innings while talking on Star Sports.

Ravi Shastri was equally impressed with the quality of Rahul’s innings.

“Just the quality of his strokeplay, the application, trying conditions… he sussed them well. And I just loved his intent. Be it in attack, or defense, he was superb. By a country mile, his best hundred. And one of the best centuries you will ever see by an Indian overseas. I think these were testing conditions, and he was brilliant. He made it look easy and he has surely cemented his place in the middle order. Whether he continues keeping or not, India should certainly look at him at No. 5 or 6 on a regular basis,” Shastri pointed out.
