KL Rahul has heaped praise on former India skipper, MS Dhoni. The batsman is ready to take a bullet for the legendary player as he has the respect of his teammates having led India to numerous titles in international cricket. He is the only skipper to win all three ICC white-ball trophies.
“The minute anybody says captain, the first name that comes to mind from our era will be MS Dhoni. We have all played under him. Yes, he has won a lot of tournaments, done amazing things for the country but I think the biggest achievement that as captain you can have is the respect of your teammates and any of us would take a bullet for him without a second thought,” KL Rahul stated.
The right-handed batsman also lauded Virat Kohli for making India one of the top sides across formats. Under Virat Kohli, India have enjoyed success in Australia, South Africa, England and New Zealand.
“Playing with and under Virat Kohli, he is a different sort of captain. He is a very passionate individual. He operates at 200. 100 is the best you possibly can be at, but he operates at 200. He has the unbelievable ability to carry the other 10 guys and pull them from 100 to 200,” KL Rahul told Forbes.
