Since his debut Down Under, Rahul has played 36 Tests, 35 ODIs and 45 T20 Internationals.
The agile batsman has become a prolific speedster for India, especially in the limited formats.
Rahul scored 1332 runs in ODI averaging 45.93 with four cents and 1542 runs in T20Is averaging 44.05 with two cents.
Rahul’s consistent performances saw him appointed vice-captain along India’s limited leg of their ongoing tour of Australia, with regular vice-captain Rohit Sharma absent due to fitness problems.
Rahul also took over the captaincy of Kings XI Punjab for the 2020 season of the Indian Super League (IPL).
Rahul had a prolific season also in the IPL, finishing as the top scorer, even if his team did not reach the knockout stages.
Rahul is currently preparing for India’s four-test series against Australia.
