KL Rahul came out all guns blazing in the opening T20I vs Sri Lanka in Cuttack and the visitors were left scratching their heads.
Skipper Rohit Sharma perished early, but Rahul was in totally different zone as he raced to his fifty in 35 balls.
The ball was finding the boundary with regularity and the Lankans were running all over the place. The crowd was thoroughly entertained.
Rahul finished with 61 in 48 balls. His innings contained 7 fours and one six. It helped India amass 180/3. MS Dhoni (39*) and Manish Pandey (32*) provided the finishing touches.
Earlier India won the ODI series 2-1 and the Test series 1-0.
