KL Rahul has found his mojo back in the ongoing 11th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and has played some scintillating knocks for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) this year. Even in the curtain raiser for Punjab, he smashed the fastest IPL fifty ever against Delhi Daredevils (DD).
Rahul has been opening the innings for his new franchise and not surprisingly is in the race for the leading run-scorers of the tournament. In a tournament like IPL, the bonding between the players become very important and even their families get along with them which is very nice. The environment in the dressing room is like a family as everyone enjoys each other’s company.
Yuvraj Singh is also known to be the player who makes anyone comfortable with his friendly nature and without any surprise, his wife Hazel Keech must have taken some tips from him regarding the same. In a recent incident, she clicked a photo of Rahul playing with the toys which kids normally play with and she termed him ‘toy stealer’.
Hazel Keech took to her official Instagram account and updated her story in which KL Rahul could be seen busy playing with the toys and captioned it as, “Stealing kids toys @rahulkl.”
KXIP started the season with a bang and were the favorites to qualify for the playoffs, from past few games, they have completely lost the momentum as lost both of their last two games. They were recently outclassed by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore.
Currently, Punjab team is standing at the fifth position in the points table with 12 points under their belt after playing 12 matches. They still have a couple of matches left against Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and will have to win both the games to qualify for the playoffs comfortably.
Punjab’s over-dependence on the opening duo of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle while batting has cost them badly and the middle-order has to come to the party if they are hoping to go through to the playoffs.
