Former Indian captain and batting great Sunil Gavaskar believes Lucknow Super Giants’ skipper KL Rahul can play the finisher’s role as well in the IPL 2022.
Praising the stylish right-handed batsman, Gavaskar said KL Rahul has all the shots in the book to be a finisher for his side.
While speaking on Cricket Live on Star Sports, Gavaskar said: “KL Rahul is such an integral part of any team. He opens the batting and gets to bat 20 overs and sets the pace for his team. I believe he has the ability to be the finisher as well.”
“He’s not just somebody who can begin the innings and get the team off to a good start. He has all the shots in the book to finish it off as well. So, if he gets going till the 15th-16th over, then LSG can post 200-plus on the board,” Gavaskar said.
LSG will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in their next IPL match on April 4.
