India’s KL Rahul had mixed feelings about the six that sealed victory for his team in a World Cup match against Australia. 

Despite the joy of victory, Rahul expressed regret over not reaching a century and revealed his initial plan to achieve it with a four followed by a six. 

India secured a six-wicket win against Australia after Rahul and Virat Kohli’s partnership, chasing a target of 200.

Some Key Points for you to Know:

Match Summary: India was chasing a target of 200 against Australia in a low-scoring World Cup match. 

After a shaky start with three of their top four batters dismissed for ducks, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli built a crucial 165-run partnership to secure a six-wicket victory with 52 balls to spare.

The Decisive Six: KL Rahul was on 91 not out when he hit a six through the off-side off Pat Cummins to seal the victory. This shot secured the win for India, but Rahul had aimed to reach his century with a four followed by a six.

Regret Over Century Miss: Rahul expressed his desire to reach his century with a boundary and then a six, but he hit the ball “too well” for a maximum. He finished with an unbeaten 97, missing out on the milestone.

Rushing to the Crease: After a hot and humid day in the field, Rahul had hoped to rest but was called to bat early due to India’s top-order struggles.

Partnership with Kohli: Rahul and Virat Kohli adopted a risk-free approach, focusing on accumulating runs through proper shots, rotating the strike, and running aggressively between the wickets. Their partnership was pivotal in India’s successful chase.

Upcoming Match: India, a two-time World Cup champion, will face Afghanistan in their next match on Wednesday.

KL Rahul’s innings and approach to securing victory alongside Kohli were crucial in India’s World Cup campaign, and they will look to continue their momentum in the upcoming matches.
