The former West Indies veteran Brian Lara is so impressed with India wicket-Keeper batsman KL Rahul and the way he bats. He also named him as the player he would want in his Test, ODI and T20I teams.
KL Rahul is currently leading Kings XI Punjab in the 13th season of Indian Premier League. He is impressing everyone with his sensational performance in the ongoing tournament. Recently he made a special record, as he became the only first Indian batsman to score 500 plus runs in three successive seasons of IPL.
The India wicket-keeper batsman is currently the top scorer of IPL-2020 as he has scored 525 runs in 9 matches. He has scored five fifties so far and also has the highest score of this season to his name – an unbeaten 132 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
“He’s my test batsman, he’s my 50-over batsman and he’s my T20 batsman,” Lara said on Star Sports after KXIP beat Mumbai Indians in a second super over.
“As a captain he has done very well. I love the way he bats, love the way he puts them together. Yes he struggled to finish off matches towards the beginning but now he’s looking to improve that too,” he added.
It wasn’t the first time Lara has hailed KL Rahul. Earlier, he had called him his ‘favourite batsman’ and praised him for his batting techniques.
KL Rahul is struggling hard to make it to the playoffs. His team is currently placed on the fifth spot of the points table with very crucial eight points.
