IPL 2021: Former India captain Gautam Gambhir has given a big statement about KL Rahul’s batting. Gambhir believes that Rahul has more ability to play shots around the field than Team India captain Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. On Thursday, Punjab captain KL Rahul played an unbeaten innings of 98 runs in 42 balls against Chennai. After his innings, Gambhir said that he feels that Rahul has more effort to play the shot than Kohli and Rohit Sharma.
Gambhir said, “If he continues to play the way Rahul batted against Chennai, then I believe he has more ability to play shots than Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. I can only describe his innings today. Seeing this, I am not saying this, but I believe that Rahul is the best batsman in terms of playing shots in India.
Whole world will talk about Rahul
According to Gambhir, if Rahul continues to play like this, then the whole world will talk about him in the coming time. He said, “Rahul should play his cricket just like this. He should show his aggressive game not only in India but all over the world. Today the whole world knows Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma for their brilliant game. In the coming time if Rahul If he keeps playing like this, people around the world will talk about him even more than this. That’s because he has more ability to shoot all around the field than any other player in India.
At the same time, Gambhir said, “If Rahul continued to play aggressive cricket like this, then I think Punjab team would have easily qualified for the playoffs.

I think only the team management will be able to give a better answer to this.”
