It was Rahul’s second unbeaten century against Mumbai Indians this season. Hailing the skipper’s innings, LSG coach Andy Bichel said Rahul looked sublime in his knockout against MI.

Speaking at the post-match press conference, Bichel said: “KL was sublime. He played well with the front foot and opened up the bat face when they threw him wide. He shot the ball very well, into the spaces. I thought he played well with the dimensions of the pitch.”
