“We are very fortunate to have someone like KL Rahul, who has a very stable and balanced head.” – Gautam Gambhir
However, KL Rahul has been experiencing a tough year so far with his performances for the Men in Blue across all three formats. But, after their recent jersey launch event for this upcoming edition, Gautam Gambhir hailed the skipper Rahul. The global mentor of the franchise said: “We are very fortunate to have someone like KL Rahul, who has a very stable and balanced head. I wish I had it, I did not have that. I was very extreme, but it did work for me.”
“For a franchise like Lucknow, it is important to have someone like KL at the helm. Going forward, this is going to be a massive positive for us. The captain is the flag bearer of the team. It is the captain’s team. All of us in the dressing room are there to support him. No support staff is under as much pressure as the captain. It is the body language of the captain that will decide how we perform,” Gambhir concluded. In the last season, as an individual batter, KL Rahul had another great year as he scored 616 runs in 15 matches, at an average of 51.33.
Here is how fans have reacted to the viral image:
