Skipper KL Rahul was the leading performer for his team in the first phase.

The remaining matches of the Indian Premier League will start from September 19 in the UAE. Speaking about the IPL 2021 points table, Delhi Capitals are leading the points table followed by Chennai Super Kings.

Meanwhile, KL Rahul-led Punjab Kings have failed once again in the cash-rich league. However, with the change in venues, Punjab would look to win the remaining games. Skipper KL Rahul was the leading performer for his team in the first phase.

Speaking exclusively on the Star Sports show Game Plan, former Team India batsman Gautam Gambhir stated the world hasn’t seen the best of Rahul and he has the ability to score more than 900 runs like Virat Kohli in the tournament. Virat scored 973 runs in 2016.

“We haven’t seen the best of KL Rahul. Yes, he has got runs, but we still haven’t seen what he can achieve in his batting. You could have a season like Virat Kohli had once. He’s that kind of a player in white-ball cricket, where he can get 2-3 hundreds in a season and at a very good strike rate as well. And I hope that it happens because it has been a disappointment for Punjab Kings,” Gambhir said.
