KL Rahul Team India: Indian fans are now waiting for the T20 series against South Africa. In this series, the command of India will be in the hands of KL Rahul. Big players have been given rest in this series, in such a situation, KL Rahul will have a big challenge to win the series with young players. This series is going to be very important for Rahul, because Rahul’s figures as captain have been very bad.
Threat to Rahul’s kingdom
KL Rahul will be seen captaining Team India for the second time, but he has not won a single match as a captain yet. Rahul had captained one Test and three One Day International matches on the South Africa tour, the team had to face defeat in all these matches, so this series is going to be very important for him. Players like Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer are present in the captaincy line, but the selectors have given Rahul another chance to prove himself as captain.
IPL 2022 as captain
IPL 2022 was a great season for KL Rahul as captain. In this season, he was captaining the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG). His team won 9 out of 15 matches in this season and traveled to the playoffs. For KL Rahul, this season was very good even with the bat. He scored 616 runs in 15 matches at an average of 51.33. This season his bat scored 4 fifties and 2 centuries.
Hardik Pandya is the biggest contender
After IPL 2022, Hardik Pandya has emerged as the biggest contender for captaincy. Hardik Pandya became the champion in his very first IPL season as a captain. Under Hardik’s captaincy, his team showed a great game. As captain, Hardik Pandya scored 487 runs and also took 8 wickets. Hardik Pandya can be seen captaining Team India in the coming times.
