Team India after quite some time saw their wicket-keeper performing when it matters and also doing good work behind the stumps, for a change in Rajkot on Friday.

India defeated Australia in the second ODI to level the series 1-1. Before bowling out Australia on 304, the hosts scored 340/6 in 50 overs. While India saw their top three getting runs, the one man whose innings caught everyone's attention was KL Rahul.

Rahul was pushed to number 5 in the batting order, which isn't his regular position. But he made gold out of dust and scored 80 runs off 52 balls to help India put up a fighting score on batting-friendly deck.
