A very impressive win from Team India. The bowlers were brilliant to get Australia all out for 188 after they were 129/2 before the 20 overs# and in the run chase KL Rahul’s composure under pressure was the key and that partnership with Jadeja was spectacular. #IndvsAus pic.twitter.com/8K4pKKrnZy

He has had a turbulent time of late but batting at no 5 in odi cricket is KL Rahul’s sweet spot. The numbers say that too but I believe in this current phase, where he needs a little space, that is right for him.
