Lara terms KL Rahul as most technically-gifted batsman
Former West Indies captain and left-handed batsman Brian Lara termed Indian right-handed batsman Lokesh Rahul as most technically gifted batsman.
India are all set to take on their arch rivals Pakistan in their World Cup league game on Sunday at Old Trafford. Ahead of the epic clash, former West Indies captain Brian Lara wrote up about the epic clash and strength of the Indian team in the tournament.
The Caribbean believes that KL Rahul can do some big jobs for India in the tournament and he thinks KL Rahul will be a perfect no.4 batsman for Indiaas he is technically morr stronger batsman.
“It’s sad to see that Shikhar Dhawan is out with an injury. With him in the team, you had a strong No.4 in K.L Rahul. In my opinion, Rahul is the most technically-gifted batsman in the Indian team. In the event of a top-order collapse, Rahul can repair the damage. If the top-order clicks, you can move Hardik Pandya up to No.4 to get quick runs. The batting-order was perfectly placed before Dhawan’s injury.”
Regarding the rivalry game between India and Pakistan, Lara picks India as favourites for the game and he is confident that India will maintain the winning momentum if rain permits play at Old Trafford. And he praised the current Indian bowling attack as top class one.
“If rain stays away, my money is on India maintaining their winning World Cup record against Pakistan. India is strong in all departments. Jasprit Bumrah is the best limited-overs fast bowler in the world, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar is very good too. And then they have two brilliant spinners in Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.
