ICC World Cup 2019: KL Rahul Knock Was More Important – Krishnamachari Srikkanth
Well, ahead of the game against Pakistan, the main concern for the Indian team is about the performance of KL Rahul at top of the order in absence of Shikhar Dhawan. Despite all the concerns, he came out with flying colours by adding a solid partnership with Rohit Sharma. Meanwhile, Krishnamachari Srikkanth makes his voice on the brilliant knock.
Somewhere in between the brilliance of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, the knock of KL Rahul went unnoticed. The flamboyant batsman stood up to the task by showing his brilliance to the cricketing world with his strokes down the ground.
KL Rahul played well – Krishnamachari Srikkanth
Meanwhile, Krishnamachari Srikkanth, in his column, as per Cricket Country, quoted that the knock of KL Rahul is more important than Rohit Sharma. He feels that the knocks from Rohit have become a regular phenomenon, hence, the knock from KL Rahul was special.
He lauded KL Rahul for the way he handled the fast bowlers of Pakistan in the opening spell. His solid defence coupled with the strokes off poor deliveries helped India to stay on top of the game.
“Everyone knows how good a batsman Rohit Sharma is but for me, the more important innings against Pakistan was from KL Rahul. Going into the game, the biggest question mark about this India team was how they would cope without Shikhar Dhawan,” he wrote.
”The fact the top three all got runs, that Rohit and Rahul put on more than a hundred for the first wicket and that Virat Kohli got more runs, is huge for India going forward in the tournament,” Srikkanth furtherly added to his lines.
Well, as Krishnamachari wrote, it was a fantastic knock from KL Rahul. He stood for the team in the absence of Shikhar Dhawan and showed why he deserves an opportunity to perform for the country. However, he would have loved to register a hundred to his name in the special game.
Most probably, he would be opening for the Indian team in the next couple of games as well. The flamboyant batsman would like to make the most of the opportunity in the absence of Dhawan.
