KL Rahul and Mohammad Siraj brought the score to 238 runs. Siraj was dismissed after scoring five runs and then KL Rahul completed his century with a six.

This inning of KL Rahul will be recorded in golden letters in the pages of history, Because the way he has played this inning under pressure, shows what level of batsman KL Rahul is. KL Rahul became the victim of Nandre Berger after scoring 101 runs and the Indian team thus got all out for 245 runs.

KL Rahul made a comeback with a century in One Day International and then he did the same in Test cricket too. KL Rahul, who returned not out on 70 runs on the first day of the match, completed his century on the second day. KL Rahul has become the first visiting batsman to score two centuries on this ground in South Africa. KL Rahul had also scored a century on the same ground during the 2021-22 tour.

Then KL Rahul played a fighting inning of 123 runs. At that time KL Rahul did not play as a wicketkeeper-batsman and scored that century as a pure batsman. KL Rahul has also joined the elite list of Indian wicketkeepers who have scored centuries outside Asia.

Rishabh Pant tops this list with four centuries, while KL Rahul has equaled Vijay Manjrekar, Ajay Ratra, and Wriddhiman Saha in this matter.

It is based on this inning of KL Rahul that Team India has scored 245 runs in the first innings. This inning will be remembered for a long time.

KL Rahul was clean bowled on the ball of Nandre Burger and thus the Indian team was all out for 245 runs in the first innings. At one time, it seemed difficult for the Indian team to reach 200 runs, but KL Rahul’s innings took the team’s score to this point.
