KL Rahul was the top performer for India in the limited overs leg of the New Zealand tour.
KL Rahul scored 221 runs in the five-match Twenty20 International series while he accumulated 204 runs in the One-Day Internationals.
The right-handed batsman made his Test debut back in 2014 but he had to wait for another two years to make it to the limited overs squad.
On his ODI debut against Zimbabwe, KL Rahul became the first Indian batsman to score a century in his first game for the country in the 50-over format.
KL Rahul is also one of the three Indian batsmen to have scored a century in all three formats of the game.
Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma are the other two India batters who have achieved this feat in international cricket.
