KL Rahul has played as an opener, batted in the middle order, played the role of a finisher and kept wickets for the team. This shows he is a complete team man. With his knock in the first Test against England, KL Rahul has put India in a strong position.

Like Rahul Dravid, KL Rahul is contributing to the team. Dravid also kept wickets for the team in order to accommodate another batsman. Former India pacer Zaheer Khan has lauded Rahul for his contribution and he even went on to compare him with the legendary Dravid.

“The way Rahul showed application in building his innings, the shots he played, the cover drives. The Indian team will expect him to focus and play a match-winning knock, score a hundred,” Zaheer Khan said while speaking on Cricbuzz.

KL Rahul and Dravid hail from Karnataka and have a common name too.

“Absolutely. Add another point – ‘that’ Rahul also held the wicket-keeping gloves for the team and Rahul did the same as well. It could either be the Bangalore connection or the connection of their names but he’s very talented too. Rahul Dravid has done so much for India that this show won’t suffice to talk about it. But yes, seeing such a role model who has done so much for the team compared to him and seeing that he’s being looked at with the same eyes, KL Rahul would be very happy,” Zaheer asserted.
