KL Rahul is considered one of the national team’s most exciting prospects, ahead of the ICC World T20 set to take place in Australia.
Rahul has gone from strength to strength in recent times. The cricketer’s performances during the exciting T20I and ODI series against New Zealand, where he finished amongst the leading run-scorers is certainly an indication of that.
The player smashed 204 runs in three ODI clashes finishing as the second highest run-getter, further accumulating 224 runs in five T20I clashes which made him the leading run-scorer. However, Rahul’s future in the longest format of the game continues to remain uncertain at this stage, despite all the promise shown in the shorter formats.
So, has the cricketer justified his talent in five years since debut, having just turned 28? Let us take a look at five points which will help provide clarity in this regard.
