Rahul Buddhi has made rapid strides in the limited-overs owing to his boundary-hitting ability. A right-handed batter who can strike almost at 140 and above in the T20s, Rahul can bowl a few overs of leg-spin as well.
|IPL Team||Mumbai Indians|
Born on 20 September 1997, Rahul forayed in the First Class cricket in a match against Bengal in the Ranji Trophy 2019-20, which were then followed by List A and T20 debuts in the 2019-20 editions of Vijay Hazare Trophy and Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy respectively.
In the limited opportunities at the First Class and List A cricket, Rahul managed to shine and make a mark for himself, courtesy of his striking prowess. In his maiden run in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in 2020-21, Rahul aggregated 91 runs in 5 innings while striking at 131.88. He then leveled up in the 2021-22 edition of the tournament, where he donned the role of a finisher with perfection and went on to pile 131 runs in 7 matches at an average of 43.66 and a strike rate of 139.36, with 13 fours and 4 sixes, to finish as the third-best scorer for Hyderabad. Though the right-hander had a mediocre scoring in the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2021-22, where he amassed only 111 runs across 5 matches, once again, his strike rate (87.40) and his boundary-hitting came to his rescue and got him the desired appreciation.
A middle-order batter, Rahul’s ability to go insane onto the opposition from the very delivery is what caught the attention of the Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2022 auction, where he was eventually handed a contract by the former champions at his base price of 20 lakhs. Mumbai Indians is a destination for many budding cricketers and for Rahul to bag an opportunity to get groomed under some of the best cricketing brains is bound to do wonders to his career.
Rahul rarely shares any updates on social media and there isn’t any information floating across the internet regarding his love life.
