IPL 2019: KL Rahul Smashes Maiden IPL Century During MI v KXIP, Sets Twitter Ablaze | SEE POSTS
IPL 2019: Punjab has set 198 for Mumbai to win.
IPL 2019: After a whirlwind 63 off 36 balls, KL Rahul smashed his maiden IPL ton off merely 64 balls to power KXIP to 197/4. Rahul is in red-hot form, wherein the last match he remained 69* as he led his side to a win and then he follows it up with a timely ton, just ahead of the World Cup selection that takes place on April 15. His innings comprised off six sixes and fours. His timely knocks have surely brightened his chances for making it to the WC squad.
Team India was having a problem with the No 4 slot, with good knocks from Rahul he will surely be the frontrunner for that position. Here is how Twitter reacted to Rahul’s ton.

Is it just me or does KL Rahul sound and behave exactly like Virat Kohli when he speaks to the TV screens? He has the game, if only he could replicate Kohli’s mental strength, India’s no.4 issues would be easily sorted.

This century of KL Rahul has booked his place for WC and perhaps the most debated No 4 position#MIvKXIP

When life gives you a chance, grab the opportunity like KL rahul.
Magnificient century vs MI, one of the lethal attack in the IPL.
I think he’s already booked no 4 slot for India in the upcoming WC2019.#IPL2019 #cricket #MIvKXIP

Though Rohit Sharma & a few others hv said that World Cup squad must not be selected on the basis of IPL performances but it would be foolish to totally overlook sparkling form of KL Rahul. Can be a back-up opener & bat at no.4 as well. Better option than Rayudu any day #MIvKXIP

So, what do you reckon? Has Rahul impressed enough to make the cut? Only time will answer that.
