KL Rahul Eager to Try Wicketkeeping, Inspired by Rahul Dravid

1 min read

The one first-class match KL Rahul played as wicketkeeper doesn’t seem to hold India back from utilizing him in that role for the two-Test series in South Africa. Coach Rahul Dravid expressed excitement about this opportunity, acknowledging that although Rahul hasn’t frequently kept wicket in the longer format, he has been preparing by doing so regularly in 50-overs cricket. Dravid emphasized that there will be more pace bowling than spin in South Africa, making it an easier transition for Rahul. The absence of his regular competition, Ishan Kishan, has opened the window for Rahul. Dravid also highlighted the importance of the keeper contributing with the bat, as seen in India’s last tour when they failed to score critical runs in the third innings. He emphasized that the young batters are not being asked to change their game but to be aware of the match situation and play accordingly. Dravid encouraged players to find a balance between expressing themselves with the bat and making smart decisions based on the game’s situation.
