KL Rahul has been enjoying imperious form in England as the Indian back-up opener scored a century in the second Test at Lord’s helping India gain a formidable position in the contest. The right-handed batsman kicked-off the proceedings on a slow note, with Rohit Sharma taking the charge.
However, after Rohit’s dismissal, who fell short from completing a well deserved century by 17 runs, Rahul took the charge and helped his side gain control in the contest.
Actress Athiya Shetty, who was often been linked with the cricketer, was among the several fans to celebrate Rahul’s heroics. She took to Instagram and posted a video of the batsman celebrating his century, also adding a couple of celebratory emojis with a red heart.
Meanwhile, her father and popular Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty also wished the cricketer and shared a video on Twitter.
