The right-handed batter hit 2 hundreds and 4 fifties in the 15th season. He led his team from the front by taking Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) into the Eliminator in their first edition.
LSG skipper’s dream of winning the IPL Trophy was dashed when they lost the match to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Eden Gardens. Chasing 208 runs to win, the KL Rahul-led franchise fell short by 14 runs.
The 30-year-old batter scored 626 runs in 13 matches in 2021, 670 runs in 14 matches in 2020, and 659 runs in 2018. He fell short by seven runs in 2019, when he scored 593 runs.
