The fans of Lucknow Super Giants – one of the newest franchise in the IPL – will pin their hopes on this man - KL Rahul - as the team looks to build on to their impressive show in the last and their maiden season of the IPL. LSG picked KL Rahul – one of the finest – batters of the modern era to the board via draft and made him their captain. While Rahul, who was earlier leading Punjab Kings, will have a new set of players at his disposal, he will be out to lead from the front and bring the best out of his new teammates. KL Rahul has over 3800 IPL runs to his name and his run-tally from the last four seasons (recent first) read: 616, 626, 670, and 593. The stylish yet destructive right-hander also holds the record for the highest individual score by an Indian batsman in the IPL. As LSG gear up to play their first season before their home crowd in Lucknow, Rahul will be eager to set the stage on fire and wow the audience with his scintillating batting displays.
