KL Rahul was looking in good touch against Royal Challengers Bangalore before he lost his wicket against the run of play. The captain of Lucknow Super Giants smashed 30 off 24 balls and completed 6,000 runs in T20 cricket.
While the 29-year-old is the 10th Indian to reach the landmark, he is the fastest player from India to script this milestone.
KL broke Virat Kohli’s record after completing 6000 runs in 166 innings. The former RCB skipper had taken 184 innings to touch this number in the slam-bang version of the game.
