Over the years, KL Rahul has become one of the best batters across formats. While Rahul has a massive fan following, he is a big fan of AB de Villiers.

KL Rahul is leading Lucknow Super Giants against Gujarat Titans at the Wankhede Stadium in IPL 2022. Former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar recently opined on Rahul’s captaincy stint with the Punjab Kings.

Gavaskar stated that Rahul seemed preoccupied while leading the Punjab based franchise. He even suggested that the right-handed batter was not given his preferred Playing XI during his time with PBKS.

“When he was the leader of Punjab Kings, he seemed to be preoccupied, maybe he was not getting the Playing XI he wanted. The new team Lucknow Super Giants is going to be a different challenge for Rahul and if he can bat the way he did in the previous editions and take the franchise to the knockouts, he would take a big step forward in his career.”

Rahul has 11 wins as captain from 27 matches so far. However, he has been a top performer with the bat. He has amassed 3273 runs in 94 matches at an impressive average of 47.43.
