2) KL Rahul
Lokesh Rahul has established himself as one of the best openers as far as T20I cricket is concerned. The right-handed batsman loves to take the attack to the opposition by smashing sixes and fours at will. He often gives the team a perfect start. In the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League, he won the Orange Cap for being the leading run-scorer of the tournament.
Punjab Kings captain scored 670 runs in 14 games including 1 century and 5 fifties. His impeccable 132 off 69 balls with the help of 14 fours and 7 sixes against Royal Challenges Bangalore was the highest individual score by an Indian player in the IPL.
The fans will expect a similar kind of fireworks from KL Rahul in the upcoming T20I series against England. Having played 45 games, he garnered 1542 runs with a fantastic batting average of 44 and a strike-rate of 144.2. Rahul smashed 2 centuries and 12 fifties to his name.
