IPL franchise Lucknow Super Giants coach Andy Flower believes that KL Rahul is the best candidate to replace Rohit Sharma as Team India’s captain. Rahul has led India in seven ODI’s, three Tests and one T20I and has achieved a decent success.

Rahul was considered Rohit’s successor but Hardik Pandya’s emergence and his performance as a captain has changed the scenario.

Andy Flower, who is currently working with Gulf Giants, has given his backing to LSG skipper KL Rahul.

“KL Rahul is a beautiful batter and I love watching him bat. I first saw him when I was coaching England Lions. We played against India A in Trivandrum and I became a keen follower of his batting,” he said.

The legendary batter praised KL Rahul’s captaincy as well.

“KL Rahul will be an excellent skipper. I have no idea about other guys but I am sure of Rahul’s success,” he added.

He wished KL Rahul a happy married life in advance. The star player will tie the knot with Athiya Shetty.
