PBKS captain KL Rahul has a bigger repertoire of shots than anyone else in India feels former India batsman Gautam Gambhir.

Punjab Kings (PBKS) captain KL Rahul has a bigger repertoire of shots than anyone else in India if former India batsman Gautam Gambhir is to be believed. Speaking after Rahul led PBKS to a six-wicket victory over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) with a blistering knock of 98 not out off 42 deliveries in an Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 clash in Dubai on Thursday.

More ability than Virat Kohli-

Gambhir said the 29-year-old India cricketer may possess “more ability than Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma”. Gambhir added that had Rahul batted throughout this IPL campaign the way he did on Thursday. PBKS would have made the cut for the playoffs.

“If you can bat like this, why don’t you bat like this? He probably has more ability than Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. I am not saying it just because I have seen KL Rahul doing it today, he just has it. He has got more shots than anyone else in India. And he showed that again,” Gambhir said on ESPNCricinfo.

Chasing 135 for victory, the Punjab team stormed to victory in 13 overs. As the CSK skipper, MS Dhoni could not find answers to stop Rahul’s onslaught. Skipper Rahul was on the attack from the word go, launching into the CSK bowlers. The stylish right-hander clobbered eight sixes to go with seven boundaries and finished it in style with a big six off Shardul Thakur.

Top of the Orange Cap list-

Rahul went on top of the Orange Cap list on Thursday. But he could lose out to the likes of Faf Du Plessis, Ruturaj Gaikwad, and Shikhar Dhawan as these players will be playing the playoffs as well.

Gambhir was disappointed that Rahul did not show this aggressive side in the previous matches. As he feels such performances could have lifted PBKS and helped them make it to the play-offs.
