It's a wonderful habit to score centuries. And #KLRahul has it.

Like M Vijay & Rahane, K L Rahul too has the temperament to bat long hours, so also shots to score quick runs. India is blessed. #WIvInd

Well played, KL Rahul. Three Test hundreds. All away from home. 100% fifty to hundred conversion rate. Got to be a permanent member in Tests

Last week KL Rahul had a beer.
This week he scored a test century.
This proves that beer is good for fitness.
