Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul turns 29 on Sunday (April 18), and birthday wishes are pouring in from all over the world. On the occasion, Yuvraj Singh, Shreyas Iyer and many other members of the cricket fraternity took to social media and extended greetings for the dasher. Born in 1990, Rahul’s cricket journey has been nothing short of incredible. The technically sound batsman was touted to become a Test specialist earlier in his career. However, the talismanic cricketer worked on his game and emerged as one of the most fearsome batsmen in limited-overs cricket. Rahul can score runs quickly with orthodox shots, and his knack of staying at the crease for long makes him an even greater asset.

While there are many swashbuckling batsmen in modern-day cricket, not many more versatile than Rahul. Despite being an opener majority of his career, the Bangalore batsman became the cornerstone of Team India’s middle-order is white-ball cricket. Be it playing anchor knocks or providing late impetus, Rahul rose to all the challenges which came his way. Moreover, he also became India’s designated wicket-keeper in ODIs and T20Is last year. Hence, there’s hardly anything that Rahul can’t do on a cricket field, and it would be exciting to see what more feats the dasher will achieve in time to come. As Rahul turns a year older, let’s look at how cricket stars wished him. IPL 2021 Points Table Updated.
