This great player raised questions on handing over responsibility to KL Rahul

new Delhi: West Indies veteran Brian Lara said that the finest batsman KL Rahul should not be given the responsibility of wicketkeeping in the Indian team and he should be given an opportunity to focus on his batting.

Lara also believes that Rishabh Pant has matured a lot in the last one year and his name should be considered as India’s number one wicketkeeper batsman.

Rahul played a superb role as a wicketkeeper during the limited overs series against Australia and during India’s tour of New Zealand earlier this year. The Indian team also experimented with Rahul’s batting order and he also stood true in it.

Lara said, ‘First of all I would like to say that when it comes to wicketkeeping, KL Rahul should not put the weight of wicketkeeping’.

He said, “He is a great batsman and I think he should focus on batting and make big scores”.

Rahul has so far scored 302 runs in five matches in the Indian Premier League with the help of one century and two half-centuries.

Pant is believed to be the successor of Mahendra Singh Dhoni but he had to face criticism due to poor wicketkeeping early in his career. But Lara believes that this young cricketer who scored 171 runs in IPL has matured in the last one year and is taking more responsibility while playing for Delhi Capitals.

He said, ‘I didn’t say anything to Rishabh Pant a year ago but I think he has realized his responsibility as a batsman. Seeing the way he is playing for Delhi Capitals, it seems that he understands his responsibility. He wants to score runs, wants to finish the innings. If he continues to do so, he should be number one ‘.

On the bar of Sanju Samson, Lara said that this 25-year-old cricketer still needs to improve a bit. Lara said, ‘Sanju Samson is not taking the responsibility of wicketkeeping on behalf of Rajasthan Royals, but I know he can do wicketkeeping. This is his main job. He is a good player and he played good innings in Sharjah ‘.

He said, ‘I think there is a slight flaw in his technique on good bowling attack and lively wickets’.
