Indian wicket keeper batsman KL Rahul accomplished a spectacular feat after he knocked a brilliant century against New Zealand in the third match of the ODI series at Bay Oval on Tuesday.
The 27-year-old scored his fourth hundred in the limited over format and was behind India putting up a fighting total after yet another poor performance from the top order.
KL Rahul also engraved his name in history books as he bacame the only Indian batsman to score a hundred against Black Caps in New Zealand while coming to bat at No.5 or below. All-inclusive, Rahul became the second Indian to knock a hundred in New Zealand at number five or below after Suresh Raina, who knocked a hunderd against Zimbabwe during the 2015 World Cup.
A batsman knocking a hundred at No.5 is a rare occasion for the men in blue as the last batsman to do so at this spot was former Indian skipper MS Dhoni, who did so against England in 2017.
