Legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar feels that KL Rahul has the ability to take over the captaincy and should be groomed as the future captain of the Indian cricket team.
Gavaskar made this remark after Virat Kohli announced his removal from the T20 captaincy post after the T20 World Cup. Rohit Sharma is now ready to become the captain of India’s T20 team in place of Kohli.
Gavaskar told ‘Sports Tak’, ‘It is a good thing that BCCI is looking ahead. It is important to think about the future.
He said, ‘If India is thinking of getting a new captain, then KL Rahul can be seen. She has performed well. Even in England his batting was very good. He is doing well in IPL and 50 over cricket and international level. He can be made the vice-captain.
Rahul is the captain of Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Gavaskar said, ‘He has had a very impressive captaincy in the IPL. He has not let the burden of captaincy affect his batting. His name can be considered.
