R Ashwin Believes KL Rahul Is Offering Stability To The Middle Order

Indian ace off-spinner R Ashwin recently showered praise on Indian batsman KL Rahul for his excellent performance in the middle order. The wicketkeeper-batter made a terrific comeback as he recorded a remarkable ton against arch-nemesis Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2023 Super Four stage clash.

KL Rahul notched 111 off 106 deliveries, including 12 fours and two maximums. Following Rahul’s stupendous knock, Ashwin stated that he provides stability with the bat in the middle-order. Ashwin also stated that MS Dhoni had been outstanding in the middle-order and is not drawing Rahul with the former India skipper.

“KL Rahul is giving us that stability with the bat in the middle-order. That’s why batting in the middle-order is really difficult. MS Dhoni nailed that art. However, I am not at all comparing KL Rahul with MS Dhoni. Plus, he did a different role of batting at number 6/7 compared to KL Rahul,” Ashwin was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times.

Ashwin went on to say that Rahul is getting into the role. He also praised the wicketkeeper-batter for his performance in the second group stage match against Sri Lanka.

“But I feel he is slowly mastering his role perfectly. He put a partnership with Ishan Kishan initially against Sri Lanka too. When Dunith Wellalage was in a great rhythm, KL Rahul left it alone for two deliveries. That was a very good sign. It showed us that he had a good game plan,” the veteran added.

Meanwhile, India will take on Bangladesh in their final Super Four stage clash in the ongoing tournament.
