KL Rahul enjoys his role as the wicketkeeper batsman in the Indian squad with limited overruns and would like to keep his job with three world championships coming up over the next three years.
SYDNEY: KL Rahul enjoys his role as a wicketkeeper batsman in the Indian squad with limited overruns and would like to keep his job with three upcoming World Cups over the next three years.
Part-time stumper Rahul held wickets during India’s one-day series in New Zealand in February and re-enacted Kings XI Punjab’s role in this year’s Indian Premier League.
He will stay behind the stumps in the Limited Overs series in Australia, but denied that it was part of India’s bigger plans, taking into account the Twenty20 World Cups in 2021 and 2022 and the 50 Overs World Cup in 2023.
« I don’t think we think that far as a team, » said Rahul in a virtual press conference before the one-day series opener against Australia on Friday.
« If I consistently perform well with the racket and gloves, we of course have the option of playing an additional batsman or an additional bowler.
« If the opportunity presents itself and I can compete in all three World Championships, I would like to. «
The versatile batsman owes his new role to the capricious form of Rishabh Pant, who was seen as Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s natural successor behind the stumps.
Rahul said he learned a lot from Dhoni, whose inputs behind the stumps often helped bowlers plan layoffs.
« I will likely give them (bowlers) feedback on what I think may be a pitch or a better pace to bowl, or if they are doing something wrong or if they can change the field set, » he added.
« I did this on a show in New Zealand and I really enjoyed it. Hopefully I can read games better and give the bowlers and the captain some good feedback behind the stumps. «
