Alongside Quinton de Kock, Rahul constructed a formidable partnership of 134 runs for the first wicket. Despite Mustafizur Rahman dismissing de Kock in the 15th over, Rahul continued to anchor the innings. KL Rahul, who had reached his fifty in just 31 deliveries, seemed poised to guide his team to victory.

However, his innings was cut short by a spectacular catch from Ravindra Jadeja in the 18th over, leaving LSG needing 16 runs for victory. Pathirana bowled a short and wide delivery, prompting Rahul to play an aggressive shot towards point.
