KL Rahul -- first Indian to hit century on ODI debut. Thanks to IPL!!

June 11, 2016 12:51pm CST
Thanks to IPL, new players are already trained and experienced to take on international teams. KL Rahul scored a century in first ODI vs Zimbabwe. He smashed a six to get the winning runs and also century on debut. Wow what a feeling century on debut, dream start for any player!! He has already scored a test century.

Dear Vijayji, it is good India got new talents. Rahul has to improve his wicket keeping. He is a very good batsman.

Yes his catching was also not that good .at least in test matches an opening batsman and a good keeper will be an added advantage to the team . Hope he will improve his keeping abilities

He was never a wicket keeper, he was doing this role just for RCB, he wont be keeping for India.

@vijay_2016 He will surely find place in Tests, but in ODI, he will have competetion from Dhawan and Rahane and both cannot be replaced as of now.

K L Rahul is a talented batsman and he could be a great potential opener for India in future in both ODI and Tests.

Yes he played well in the IPL also . He is talented. But right now I don't think there is a chance for opening position in the main team once we have Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan . And yes it is always good to have good bench strength. Rahul has grab the opportunity given to him with both the hands in the second one day also he scored a decent 33 runs

@vijay_2016 Thanks Vijayji, I feel the Zimbabwe tour is not a reading example. India will be tested before good teams.

No he is an opening batsman and he has scored hundred runs in the first ODI match that he played he has also scored a test century in the first match he played
