KL Rahul is all set to lead Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in IPL 2022. Rahul was signed through a draft system ahead of the IPL 2022 mega auction, as he left Punjab Kings (PBKS) and was given the captain’s armband. Former India player Aakash Chopra has opined on Rahul’s duties and the challenges he will face as a batter and a captain.
Chopra further stated that KL has a chance to execute his plans properly as Lucknow have roped in Andy Flower as head coach and former India batter Gautam Gambhir as the mentor.
“Rahul is a clean slate. He was playing slowly at Punjab Kings because of the team. Now the LSG have been built, keeping Rahul in mind. So now, he will have to play freely. This is your challenge. It is like do or die. You have to prove yourself as a captain as well,” Chopra remarked in a video on his YouTube channel.
“Now go for shots. Gautam Gambhir and Andy Flower will be there. You are a good captain and a player. Get the best out of yourself,” Chopra added.
LSG will play their maiden game against Gujarat Titans on March 28 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday.
