India lost the game, but it was for the first time Rahul showed his class as a finisher as well. Rahul has batted at 5 for India in the ODIs and has done decently well at that position.
Rahul’s captaincy was criticized after the first game for bowling Deepak Hooda at a stage where the likes of Dusmantha Chammera and Avesh Khan had still their overs left.
It would be interesting to see if there is any improvement in KL’s captaincy as the league progresses because one thing which is certain with him is that he would definitely score runs.
