Lords XI Punjab couldn’t make it to the play-offs yet Rahul did his bit opening the innings, scoring 593 runs and completing second behind David Warner (692) in the run-scorer’s rundown.

His methodology was traditional and the six fifties and one hundred will positively keep him in uplifted spirits if the group the executives anticipates that him should bat at No. 3 or 4 in the super occasion.

Rahul’s captain Ravichandran Ashwin wasn’t actually content with his strike-rate (135.38) however the 438 balls that he looked in real match circumstance is the best reproduction he could have had before the masterpiece.

For Hardik, the IPL triumph couldn’t have come at a superior time

as he, on numerous occasions, demonstrated why he is known as the ‘distinct advantage’ or the ‘x-factor’.

402 keeps running at a strike-pace of 191 in addition to, 29 sixes, 14 wickets and 11 gets is stuff of any every one rounder had always wanted, insights that India chief Virat Kohli can discover comfort in regardless of his own establishment RCB’s lamentable show.
