KL Rahul has not been in good touch for a long time. He is scoring low and also affecting the start of the team India innings. Recently India suffered from this too. Australian great recently gave a verdict on Rahul and mentioned that he is exposed.
Shane Watson’s verdict on Rahul’s batting
Shane Watson’s statements,
“The thing I’d say, just specifically to KL Rahul – he’s at his best when he’s just taking the game on. Not trying to just rotate strike or being a bit more defensive. When he’s batting purely on instinct and putting a lot of pressure on the bowler, because he’s just got every shot in the book – wherever they bowl it, he can just hit that ball for a six or a boundary. When KL’s a little bit more defensive in his mind, that’s when, like all batters, you’re a lot more susceptible to being exposed.”
He basically pointed out his defensive and conservative approach to batting. This gives a bowler an extra edge for his dismissal. He needs to put the pressure back on the bowlers. In IPL, he plays with an impressive strike rate and remains on the list of the highest run-getters most of the time. He needs to replicate that in international matches and prove his worth as an explosive opening batsman. He needs to build up confidence in him in hitting the bowl all over the park.
