Rahul made his international debut in 2014 and scored his maiden Test century in his second Test match. He was the first Indian to score a century on One Day International debut, and the third Indian to score a century in all three formats of international cricket.

Rahul made his first-class cricket debut for Karnataka in the 2010–11 season. In the same season, he represented his country at the 2010 ICC Under-19 Cricket World Cup, scoring a total of 143 runs in the competition. He made his debut in the Indian Premier League in 2013, for Royal Challengers Bangalore. During the 2013-14 domestic season he scored 1,033 first-class runs, the second-highest scorer that season.

Rahul made his Test debut in the 2014 Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. He replaced Rohit Sharma and was presented with his Test cap by MS Dhoni. He batted at number six and made three runs in the first innings; in the second innings, he played at number 3 and made only 1 run but retained his place for the next Test at Sydney where he opened the innings with Murali Vijay and made 110 runs, his maiden international hundred.

He was named in the squad to tour Zimbabwe in 2016 and made his One Day International (ODI) debut against Zimbabwe at Harare Sports Club, scoring a century on debut – the first Indian cricketer to do so on debut. He made his Twenty20 International (T20I) debut later in the same tour.

Lokesh Rahul set the record for the fastest batsman to have scored centuries in all three formats in just 20 innings surpassing the record of Ahmed Shehzad who took 76 innings. He is the first player in T20I history to score a century (110*) while batting at number 4 position or lower. On 3 July 2018, Rahul smashed his second T20 International ton against England. He is also the first Indian batsman to be dismissed hit-wicket in T20Is.

Rahul was named captain of the Kings XI Punjab for the 2020 IPL, after the former captain, Ravichandran Ashwin was traded to Delhi Capitals. In the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on 24 September 2020, he scored an unbeaten 132 off just 69 balls. With that century, he broke the record of the most runs scored by an Indian batsman in an IPL match. He also broke the record of the most runs scored by a captain in an IPL match.

In the IPL 2020 season, he scored 670 runs in all the 14 matches he played. He scored 5 fifties and 1 hundred with the highest score of unbeaten 132 against RCB and also had an average of 55.83.

Rahul won the Orange Cap in IPL 2020 for scoring the most runs in IPL 2020. Rahul is retained by the Kings XI Punjab Franchise for the 2021 season.

Future of Birthday Predictions: “Will KL Rahul Win The IPL For his Punjab Kings Team in 2021?” in 2021

KL Rahul is entering the 30th year of his life, 3+0= 3 which is ruled by Jupiter.
2021 is a number 5 year ruled by Mercury.
KL Rahul’s lucky numbers are 3, 6, 9
As his lucky numbers are 3, 6, 9 and he is entering into the 30th year of his life so 2021 is going to be a very fruitful year for KL Rahul, says Hirav Shah.

I think it is important for KL Rahul to believe in himself because cricket is such a game that he might fail more than he will succeed. So when he does have those failures, when other people are doubting him, when he feels like losing the plot somewhere – all Rahul has to do is believe in himself and in his skill. Believe in all the hard work that he has put into the game, and believe that he can make it to the highest level and perform consistently there. KL Rahul if he plays well, he has all the chances of winning IPL 2021 for his Punjab team. If not he will at least end up in the playoffs,” says Sports strategist and celebrity Astrologer Hirav Shah.

Happy Birthday, KL Rahul!
