Ness Wadia, co-owner of Kings XI Punjab, has praised the team’s captain KL Rahul, calling him a ‘very versatile player and a captain in the making’.
Kings XI Punjab captain KL Rahul showcased his batting talent when he hammered an unbeaten 132 runs in 69 balls against Royal Challengers Bangalore last week. The right-handed wicketkeeper-batsman carried in on the same vein of form in Punjab’s next game against Rajasthan Royals as he went on to slam another 69 runs and struck a 183-run partnership with Mayank Agarwal for the opening wicket.
He has so far scored 222 runs in three matches, including one hundred and a half-century for Kings XI and sits at the top of the charts in the list of leading run-scorers.
“As one can recollect we went very strong for KL Rahul in the auctions. Show me a more versatile player in Indian cricket at the moment. He can open, he can go down to number four, and he can go down to number six. At every point of that chain of the 11, to add he is also a wicketkeeper”, Wadia said.
Wadia further added that KL Rahul is a future captain for India. “He is a captain in the making. I have watched Virat, thinking like a captain and when you’re a wicket keeper you automatically think a lot, so it’s going to be amazing. Our role is just to encourage them and give them more confidence,” he added.
