In the form of his life, KL Rahul is making it count as he smoked a blistering half-century against England in the T20 World Cup practice match. The stylish right-hander went hammer and tongs right from ball one, creaming the English attack to all parts of the ground to raise a 23-ball fifty. What stood out was his clean bat swing and the reliance on timing and placement rather than brute force to score those aesthetic runs. Rahul's red-hot form augurs well for India as they look to end their eight-year title drought in ICC events.
