KL Rahul announced his comeback to form with a stunning knock that helped Team India win the first ODI by five wickets against Australia at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Friday (March 17).
When the big names like Virat Kohli (4) and Suryakumar Yadav (0) failed on the tricky Wankhede pitch, Rahul showed his excellence with the bat and went on to play a brilliant knock of 75* off 91 balls to take India to a five-wicket win over Australia in the first ODI of a three-match ODI series on Friday.
The right-hander came to bat when India was struggling at 16/3, and then the hosts lost two more wickets with only 83 runs on board while chasing 189 runs for victory.
Well, Rahul took charge of the side and added more than 100 runs with Ravindra Jadeja (45*) to take the side over the line inside 40 overs.
After Rahul guided Team India to a 5-wicket win over Australia, his wife and Bollywood actress-model Athiya Shetty shared a special message for the India batter, as he was hailing her husband’s efforts when the 'Men in Blue' really needed him.
She shared a picture of Rahul and Jadeja on her Instagram story with a caption: “To the most resilient person I know...#klrahul.”
