“Nothing Agricultural in His Shots,” says Sunil Gavaskar of India Star’s Batting. Speaking on Cricket Live on Star Sports, Gavaskar said, “He’s been outstanding. The best part about KL Rahul’s batting is that nothing is agricultural in his cricketing shots. Every shot that he plays is a proper textbook stroke.”
The sophisticated KL Rahul’s ability to score at a healthy rate while playing textbook strokes has piqued the interest of none other than batting legend Sunil Gavaskar, who believes it sends a message that one does not need to manufacture shots in order to score quickly. Moreover, Rahul Dravid of the Lucknow Super Giants has been in sublime form at the top of the order in the ongoing IPL-15, hitting two hundreds – both against the Mumbai Indians. With 368 runs, he is the second highest run-scorer this season, trailing only Rajasthan Royals’ Jos Buttler.

“So, with his shot-making abilities, he has effectively told you that you do not need to manufacture shots. If you’ve got the shots, use them, and his shot selection has been outstanding.” Former England captain Kevin Pietersen praised the Karnataka batter, calling his batting a breath of fresh air.
“Lokesh Rahul is the batsman who can increase or decrease the striker rate depending on the situation,” Irfan explained. He has the style, elegance, and aggression to build his innings in the manner he desires.
“Has a good temperament and a good technique. He assesses the situation and bats accordingly. Rahul is well aware of when he needs to shift gears.”
