KL Rahul scored a sensational hundred in India’s Asia Cup 2023 Super Fours fixture against Pakistan at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Playing his first competitive game after returning from an injury layoff, Rahul came in to bat at number four and absorbed the pressure early on before starting a fresh on the reserve day of the match and taking the attack to the opposition. His innings was special as Rahul was not supposed to play this match and came into the Playing XI as a last-minute injury ruled out Shreyas Iye.

His wife Athiya Shetty took to Instagram to heap praises on her husband and celebrated his 6th ODI ton with a special note.

“Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise… 🩵 You are everything, I love you. #1,” she captioned the post.

Talking about the match, India were asked to bat first and made the most of their opportunity. While openers Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma scored brisk half-centuries to give India a great start, both KL Rahul and Virat Kohli then scored hundreds in their double hundred stand as India finishes with 356/2. While this was Rahul’s sixth hundred in this format of the game, Kohli smashed his 47th ton in an innings which saw him become the fastest man to get to the 13,000 ODI runs. 

Moreover, Kohli also broke Tendulkar’s century record against Pakistan. Once set, Kohli looked in complete control and smashed a six to finish off the innings which helped India take the momentum into the second innings. Pakistan are 44/2 in 11 overs before rain returned and covers had to be brought on. While Jasprit Bumrah, making his ODI comeback as well, removed Imam-ul-Haq, Hardik Pandya got rid of Babar Azam with an indipper.
