India’s vice-captain KL Rahul said on Wednesday he would be happy to keep the wickets at the next three global ICC events if given an opportunity, although the team management has not yet discussed it with him.
Rahul now has specialized wicketkeepers Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson as No.. 1 classified. 1 glove man in a limited oversized format. Three ICC events – two consecutive T20 World Championships, followed by the ODI World Championship – are planned for the next three years.
The 28-year-old’s stance offers the team the opportunity to have an extra batsman or bowler.
« It helps the team combination a bit more and it’s something I would love to do. If the opportunity presents itself and I can compete in three world championships, I would like to do it for my country, « said Rahul in response to a request from PTI before the limited-overs series against Australia from 27. November.

« I wasn’t told anything and we don’t think that far as a team. Of course world championships are important and that is a long term vision for every team and country, ”he said.
“I think for us we only play one game at a time. So if I perform consistently with bat and gloves, we have the opportunity to play an extra bowler or an extra batsman, ”said the stylish batsman from Karnataka.
In the ODIs, Rahul has on No.. 5 and opened in the T20 Internationals, admitting that his position in the lineup will depend on formats.
KL Rahul will try to provide India’s weirdo behind the stump of advice as much as possible, despite not expecting to fill the void left by MS Dhoni’s resignation.

« Obviously in the last ODI series (against New Zealand) we played against No.. 1 fought. 5, it’s a role that I enjoyed and (I’m) happy to play any role the team gives me. ”
Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s demeanor was in a different league and the way he ran the weirdos made a major contribution to India’s success.
Would he be able to blame a Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal like Dhoni for assuming a similar role?
« Look, obviously nobody can occupy MS Dhoni’s place. He showed us the way and the role of the wicketkeeper Batman.
« We have a decent friendship with Kuldeep, Yuzi and Jaddu and of course I will give them feedback on what a better length if they get it wrong and everyone in the role of wicketkeeper has that responsibility. » he said.
Rahul loved the role of ODI keeper against New Zealand and hopes to continue the good work.
“I did a series in New Zealand and really enjoyed it. Hopefully I can read the game better and give bowlers and captains good feedback for the bowlers and the captain. ”
Surrendering and holding gates, besides opening the batting for KXIP, has given him an idea of what to expect in terms of pressure and workload when he dons the India jersey as vice-captain.
“I got a bit of a feel for the IPL. I had to play a similar role there. It was challenging, new, got used to the role and started enjoying it.
« Yeah, hopefully I’ll do the same here. When you play for the country you have 11 of the best players, great cricket minds, and a capable and passionate leader like Virat.
The IPL captain also taught him how to split up and stay in the moment.
“I learned from the IPL how to stay in the moment. When hitting, think as a batsman and see how I can win the game as a batsman.
« As a goalkeeper, for the last three to four seconds when the bowler walks in, you don’t think as a leader. This is important for me. ”
The 14-day quarantine here was a challenge, Rahul admitted, and he felt a lot better meeting his teammates for training.
“The challenge was to be alone in the room. The time you practice meeting teammates is the best time of the day. You have fun together. The challenge is mostly when you are back in the room and all alone. ”
