KL Rahul, India’s new T20I vice-captain spoke about the new leadership group Indian cricket team will start working with. While he sounded confident about Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, he showed immense faith in Rahul Dravid as the new coach of the side.
KL Rahul said that Rohit Sharma‘s captaincy is nothing new. He spoke about Rohit’s role in Mumbai Indians and how the team has achieved milestones over the years under his captaincy. “For as long as I can remember, he’s been Mumbai Indians‘ captain, and his stats are there for everybody to see. He has a great understanding of the game and tactically he’s really, really good, and that’s why he’s been able to achieve the kind of things that he has as a leader.”
“We all enjoy watching Rohit bat and we all enjoy having him in the dressing room. He’s a great guy to be around, so I’m sure he’s excited and all of us in the team are excited to play under Rohit and he’ll bring a lot of calm into the dressing room,” Rahul added.
About India’s New Coach, Kl Rahul Said,
“When it comes to coaching, I’ve played a couple of games with the India A set-up [under Dravid], and we’ve had a small chat just before coming out here for training, and he’s somebody who’s big on setting a good team culture and creating an atmosphere where people are thriving and trying to get better as people and as cricketers.” He added, “He’s always been a team man when he was playing, and that’s the kind of culture he wants to bring in here as well, where everyone’s putting the team ahead of personal goals.”
KL Rahul is excited about Team India’s new leadership group and explained why next few weeks would be meaningful.
“The next few weeks or the next few days will be exciting, to understand what kind of goals he has and what kind of culture and, I got asked this question before, what kind of template we’re looking to play. The more we talk to him in the next couple of days, I’ll also understand it better and maybe be able to give you that answer the next time I have this conversation. It’s a big change in Indian cricket, so we’re all looking forward and [are] really excited about it”
