IND vs SA T20s: KL Rahul’s captaincy will be closely watched by BCCI and selectors, Rahul gave mixed reactions to his captaincy in Lucknow Super Giants in IPL.
They also lost in the Eliminator match of the playoffs:-
On the one hand, they were successful in taking the team to the playoffs, while on the other hand they also lost in the Eliminator match of the playoffs. India suffered a series of defeats during the captaincy of KL Rahul in the South Africa series held in January.
Again in the series against South Africa, the captaincy is on the shoulders of KL Rahul. This time on the captaincy of KL Rahul, the BCCI and the selectors will keep a close eye on him.
IND vs SA T20s- Rahul and Rishabh Pant were the two possible captaincy options after Rohit Sharma. KL Rahul will have to prove his mettle for the South Africa series in the five-match T20I series.
He led India unsuccessfully in South Africa and Team India lost the 3-match ODI series 0-3.
He will have to handle all this in the T20s:-
While Virat Kohli was also part of the team at that time along with KL Rahul. Now he will have to handle all this in the T20 series.
IND vs SA T20s- A member of the selection committee told InsideSport, “This will be a great opportunity for Rahul’s captaincy.
Bhuvneshwar will be the only senior around him and this will be the best test for him as a potential Indian captain. I will not say that there will be pressure on him but definitely, he will be closely monitored.
Both BCCI and team selectors will have an eye:-
This will be a “big opportunity” for KL Rahul, who will be eyed by both the BCCI and the team selectors. He did not impress anyone with his leadership skills during the ODI series against South Africa.
He was reluctant to change the setting of the field and was unable to use the bowlers properly. In the tour of South Africa, it was a new job for him. It’s not like leading an IPL franchise.
There is a lot of pressure in captaincy. He made some mistakes but he learned from his mistakes. The T20 series is where it will be benchmarked. I am sure he will improve his game.
