Virat Kohli has hailed KL Rahul for his performance in the T20 series against Australia. The right hand batsman was in top groove after making a comeback to the Indian side.

Rahul was asked to open in both the innings and he grabbed the opportunity with both hands. His fifty plus score in the first game gave Men in Blue an outside chance to win the game while his aggressive knock in the second and final match of the series was laced with breathtaking strokes.

Virat is backing him to be a part of the World Cup squad.

“It augurs really well. KL, when he plays well, is operating at a different level I feel. We have seen him do that in the IPL last year and in patches over the last season we played as a team.”

“It’s very difficult to find a consistent player, who can play good cricketing shots and still win you games at a strike-rate of over 140 or 150. He has all the shots and has a solid game as well.

“It will be interesting to see what happens in the final World Cup squad. Definitely, he has made a strong case for himself. It’s good he’s in great nick and hopefully he can carry it forward.”
