KL Rahul took to Instagram on Thursday to share a few photos from his stay in Melbourne. In the first photo, Rahul can be seen walking the streets while in the next photo the Indian batsman was clicked while sitting on a bench. “Melbourne Archives !!” Rahul wrote in the caption. While fans flooded the comments section praising KL Rahul’s fashion sense, it was Bollywood actor Athiya Shetty’s comment that stole the show. Athiya left a heart emoji on KL Rahul’s post.
KL Rahul was last seen in action during the limited overs series against Australia in November-December.
Rahul was the lead scorer in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League. He finished the tournament with 670 runs from 14 games.
The Kings XI Punjab captain failed to replicate his form in the international arena, scoring only 76 points in the three one-day international matches and 81 points in the three Twenty20 international matches in Australia.
Rahul is part of the Test squad for the Border-Gavaskar series of four games against Australia, but did not play in the series opener in Adelaide.
India, after dominating the first few days of the Adelaide Test, was overwhelmed by the impending bouts of fast bowling from Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins on Day 3.
India recorded their lowest ever total in Test cricket of 36/9 in the match, with Mohammed Shami retiring, hurt after being hit by a Pat Cummins bouncer. The visitors lost the game by eight wickets.
The teams will play the second Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from December 26.
