There is hardly any doubt over the ability of the Indian cricketer Lokesh Rahul who is currently going through a purple patch. Scoring over 4500 International runs, the aggressive wicket-keeper batsman averages 34.6 in Tests, 47.6 in ODIs and 45.6 in T20Is, which speaks volume of the talent and ability he carries.
Recently, he was honored to receive kind words from the former West Indian captain Brian Lara. The cricket great revealed that the right-hander is his favorite batsman and he loves watching Rahul bat. Lara admitted that Virat Kohli is the best batsman right now and the world is blessed to see the likes of Rohit Sharma and Steve Smith, but cleared that it about personal preference.
Lauding Rahul’s technique and aggressive spirit, the 50-year old wishes to see more and more of Rahul in future. It is important to note that the prodigious batsman was in prime in the recently concluded tour of New Zealand where he mustered 3 half-centuries and a ton across 8 white-ball games to garner a lot of admiration.
