KL Rahul has been a fine prospect for the Indian team in the longest format. The Bangalore batsman has been in fine form as he brought up his seventh consecutive half-century thus giving a solid platform to the batsmen to follow in the middle order.

Rahul has joined players E Weekes, Andy Flower, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Kumar Sangakkara and Chris Rogers who have achieved the same feat in the past. Rahul has been doing a great job for the Indian team and the think-tank will hope that he continues to do the same in future.

Rahul carry on his fine form:

KL Rahul goes past Rahul Dravid and joins Kumar Sangakkara with 7 consecutive Test Fifty. Rahul was in fine form against Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and kept giving India a solid start at the top of the order. His last nine innings scores in Test cricket read as 59* (today), 57, 51*, 60, 67, 51, 90, 10, 64. Rahul scored his 9th half century and he will like to carry on this time.

Rahul would have a bit disappointed that he hasn’t been able to convert these starts into a substantial score and he would like to make a big hundred today. He has been getting starts but disappointingly he hasn’t been able to make the most of it.

He will know that it will be a great opportunity for him against the depleted Sri Lankan bowling line-up and he can get a big one under his belt. The Indian opening batsman has had luck going away as Lahiru Kumara was not able to get himself in a good position when Rahul had presented the hosts with a chance.

The One-Day series will commence from 20 August and Rahul will love to carry his red-ball form into white ball cricket. Rahul is making a comeback after an injury and he would like to make the most of the opportunity. Rahul has been consistent and he would love to carry on the impetus.
