KL Rahul has been one of the best batsmen in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) and has played some scintillating knocks for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) this year. He is opening the innings for his new team and not surprisingly is in the race for the leading run-getter of the tournament. In a tournament like IPL, the bonding between the players is important and even their families get along with them which is very nice. The environment in the dressing room is like a family as everyone enjoys each other’s company.
Yuvraj Singh is also known to be the player who makes anyone comfortable with his friendly nature and no wonder that even his wife Hazel Keech must have taken some tips from him regarding the same. In a recent incident, she clicked a picture of Rahul playing with the toys which kids normally play with and has called him ‘toy stealer’.
Hazel Keech took to her official Instagram account and updated her story in which KL Rahul could be seen busy playing with the toys and captioned it as, “Stealing kids toys @rahulkl.”
Here’s her story:
Punjab’s campaign in doldrums
KXIP started the season with a bang and were the favourites to qualify for the playoffs. But they have lost their groove suddenly in the second half of the tournament. They were recently annihilated by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. Currently, they are at the fifth position in the points table with 12 points to their name after playing 12 matches. They still have a couple of matches left against Mumbai Indians (MI) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and will have to win both the games to qualify for the playoffs.
Their over-dependence on the opening duo of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle has cost them badly and the middle-order has to come to the party if they are hoping to go through to the knockouts.
