On May 16, 2018, Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) played a thrilling match against Mumbai Indians which the team lost by a close margin of 3 runs.
While the Mumbai team celebrated, it was heartbreaking for the Punjab team especially for KL Rahul who made a stunning 94 runs in just 60 balls.
While Rahul and Chris Gayle have been giving many good performances this season, KXIP as a team has been struggling having lost 7 of their 13 matches so far.
KL Rahul alone has scored a total of 652 runs in 13 matches and nearly scored a century last night with his knock including 10 fours and 3 sixes.
His performance didn’t go unnoticed and despite the team’s loss, KL Rahul was presented Stylish Player Of The Match award for his performance.
But it was what happened after the award ceremony that caught his fans attention, with a video now going viral on social media.
Rahul was caught throwing his trophy to one of his fans in the stadium so as to give it away to him.
Here is what happened –
You don't just casually throw your trophy towards the crowd until and unless you are KL Rahul! . Because at the end of the day, the innings last night didn't matter a bit to this man.. . What we can say is that we absolutely loved the knock and in times to come, he will more often find himself on the winning side given the form that he is in and the talent that he possesses! 👌 ❤ . . . . . . . #ChinUp #KeepTheBelief #KLR #RahulKL
The video has now gone viral on social media and this is how people reacted to it.
