Aakash Chopra has praised KL Rahul in T20 World Cup 2021. KL Rahul’s aggressive knock has been complimented by Chopra. During Team India’s beating of Scotland in last night’s T20 World Cup 2021 match. He also stated that the dashing opener is India’s best batter in the game’s shortest format. Rahul scored 50 runs off just 19 balls. In addition, Team India reached the 86-run mark in only six and a half overs. During his innings, the sublime stroke-maker smashed six fours and three sixes.
“KL Rahul was exceptional the way he batted. He made 50 runs off 19 balls. He became a victim of Mark Watt but three sixes and six fours, and the way he batted. I am saying this repeatedly, I know you make fun of me – KL Rahul, without doubt, is India’s best T20 batter,” Aakash Chopra said.
“Rohit and Rahul – both batted amazingly well. Rohit Sharma was brilliant. He also made 30 runs off 16 balls, he also hit decently. He was giving the support, of course, lost his wicket to a very good ball, it was a very good yorker that fell right on the spot. And in the end, SKY hit a six to win the encounter,” Chopra added.
KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma
Additionally, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma strung together a 70-run opening partnership. In just five overs to take India to the doorsteps of victory. Their knocks helped the Virat Kohli-led side to a superior tournament net run rate. Also, as compared to Afghanistan and New Zealand. However, Chopra had a word of advice for KL Rahul and the Indian team.
“But you get learnings from these encounters. Rahul has to keep playing this way. You have to give him the freedom to play just like this. I also want steel in him, that he plays like this when the big matches come, he should not change his style,” Chopra said.
