KL Rahul is currently at the peak of his powers. In the IPL 2020 thus far as a batsman, Rahul has looked at total ease. In the last few years, Rahul has impressed everyone with the range of shots the elegant batsman has in his arsenal.
Sanjay Bangar who was recently associated with the Indian team as batting coach has given Rahul an enormous appreciation. The former India player believes that Rahul is a 360 degree player much like Ab de Villiers. The tag of ‘Mr.360’ is usually associated with De Villiers but presently Rahul is India’s ‘Mr.360’.
KL Rahul Is India’s 360- Sanjay Bangar
The KXIP skipper has immensely impressed Bangar with his ability to execute shots at every part of the ground. Rahul was sensational against RCB as he recorded the highest ever score for any player in IPL history.
“Everyone calls AB de Villiers Mr 360, I’d like to say KL Rahul is India’s 360,” Sanjay Bangar said on Star Sports.
Meanwhile, Rahul in recent times has batted in the middle order for India and he has worked greatly hard on his power hitting. Rahul has also added different strokes which he now unleashes in almost every match.
KL Rahul Second Leading Run-Getter In IPL 2020
KL Rahul is currently the second leading run-getter in IPL 2020 only behind his opening partner Mayank Agarwal. In 4 matches so far, Rahul has amassed 239 runs at an average of 79.66 and a strike rate of 148.44.
Moreover, Rahul has been prolific with the bat but his bowlers have let him down in IPL 2020 so far. Yesterday Mumbai Indians batsmen scored heavily against their bowlers and took the total beyond 190 which ultimately proved to be too much.
KXIP has only won a single match out of 4 in the season till now. The KL Rahul led side will have to pull up their socks if they have ambitions of going deep in the tournament. KXIP will now face the Chennai Super Kings on October 4 (Sunday) at Dubai.
