KL Rahul became the first cricketer to achieve this feat in IPL!
Even though Punjab Kings were knocked out of the IPL-14 playoff race due to their defeat against Virat Kohli-led RCB, the team's captain KL Rahul has got a record to his name.
He scored 39 runs in 35 balls against RCB in the 48th match of IPL 2021. With this, he completed his five hundred runs in IPL-14. With this, KL Rahul has become the first cricketer to score more than five hundred runs for Punjab in four consecutive editions of the IPL.
KL Rahul has so far scored 528 runs in 12 matches of this edition of IPL at an average of 52.80.
The Punjab captain had earlier scored 670 runs in 14 matches last year, 593 runs in 14 matches in 2019, and 659 runs in the same number of matches in 2018. He has scored 3175 runs in 93 matches of IPL.
