KL Rahul might have failed to take his team Punjab Kings into the knockouts in IPL 2021 but he impressed once again on a personal front. Gautam Gambhir, lavishing praise on Rahul, said that the opening batsman probably has more ability than Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have often been talked about as the two best batters in the Indian team in white-ball cricket. But, Rahul’s performance in IPL Season 14, especially in the last match against Chennai Super Kings, has made Gambhir realise the incredible potential the Karnataka lad has.
“If you can bat like this, why don’t you bat like this? And if he can bat like this, probably he has got more ability than Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. I am not saying it just because I have seen KL Rahul doing it today; he just has it. He has got more shots than anyone else in India. And he has shown it today,” Gambhir told ESPNCricinfo after witnessing Rahul’s heroics against Chennai.
“Just go play, man. Let the world cherish, not only India. Show this world your ability. When people talk about Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, probably people will talk more about you because you have got many more shots as compared to anyone else in India,” Gambhir explained.
