KL Rahul has recently been in excellent form, which is evident from his standout performances during both of the Asia Cup 2023 matches he has started. He scored a strong century against Pakistan in his opening match of the competition, and in his second match, he played a superb 40-ball knock to help his team to a respectable total.

After almost five months of absence due to a serious injury, he made a full recovery and has since taken control of the fifth position.
