T20 World Cup: ‘Only Concern Would be Around KL Rahul’ – Sunil Gavaskar

Written by Sumit Seth

Batting great Sunil Gavaskar is delighted to see India captain Rohit Sharma getting some crucial runs against the Netherlands in the Super 12 stage of T20 World Cup 2022. Rohit has not been at his best in recent times and scored just two half-centuries before the start of T20 WC.

The swashbuckling opener had a disappointing outing against Pakistan in the opening match as he was dismissed for just 4. However, the 34-year-old bounced back against Netherlands with a 53-run knock off 39 balls.

Gavaskar said that it was good to see players like Rohit, Ravichandran Ashwin and Axar Patel perform on Thursday after an underwhelming show against Pakistan.

“Let’s talk about the way India are shaping up. It’s so good to see Rohit Sharma get some runs the other day, it’s so good to see Arshdeep bowling the way he did. Ashwin and Axar Patel got some wickets. So, everybody who didn’t have a great match against Pakistan, have come back well,” Gavaskar was quoted as saying to India Today.

“Now the only concern maybe would be around KL Rahul, who didn’t score too many runs in both matches. But he is a class act,” Gavaskar added.
