Asia Cup 2023: Sanjay Bangar said that KL Rahul should play as a wicketkeeper. If he does not do wicketkeeping, then there will probably be no batsman in the top-6, who can also bowl if required.
Sanjay Bangar on KL Rahul: The Indian team for the Asia Cup has been announced. KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer have returned to this team after a long time. But what will be the character of KL Rahul, will he play as a specialist batsman, or will he also do wicketkeeping?
However, Sanjay Bangar, former veteran player of the Indian team has given his response on this question. Sanjay Bangar said that KL Rahul should play as a wicketkeeper. If he does not do wicketkeeping, then there will probably be no batsman in the top-6, who can also bowl if required.
Sanjay Bangar said about KL Rahul –
Please tell that Sanjay Bangar said, “There must be a player in the top-5 who can bowl. I believe that KL Rahul’s place in the team is made only as a wicket-keeper batsman. If he does not do wicketkeeping, then I do not think that there is a place in the playing eleven. It is very important to have balance in team combination. Because of this, KL Rahul is more fit as a wicketkeeper. But if he does not handle the responsibility of wicketkeeping, then there will be difficulties.
Ishaan Kishan should get a chance –
On the other hand, Sanjay Bangar says, “Ishaan Kishan has not done anything wrong as a batsman, apart from this he is also playing the role of wicketkeeper very well. So I don’t think specialist batsman fits in KL Rahul team. Ishaan Kishan has been successful in leaving his mark as a batsman and wicketkeeper. For this reason, it will not be easy to keep Ishaan Kishan out of the playing XI.
