Leading his side from the front, Punjab Kings skipper KL Rahul made batting look like a cakewalk on a track where others struggled to put up runs. The right-handed wicketkeeper-batter scored 98 off 42 balls, as his side secured a resounding six-wicket win over MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League at the Dubai International Stadium on Thursday evening. 

Rahul played at a healthy strike-rate of 233.33 and went on to hit 7 4s and 8 6s during the course of his innings and also reclaimed the prestigious Orange Cap. The Punjab Kings skipper now has 626 runs from 13 matches.
