"Thanks again for the love from my IPL franchise, the love and the support have always been there and the Kings X1 fans.

Even Virat Kohli was all praise for Rahul. "I think the biggest positive to come out was the way KL Rahul batted at four. It is important that he gets runs and he is a sound player to get the scoreboard ticking. MS and Hardik were superb as well," said Kohli post the match.
