Who Is Sunil Gavaskar Batting For As Cricket Captain After Kohli?

New Delhi: Virat Kohli’s announcement of stepping down from T20 captaincy after the World Cup has somewhat shaken the cricket world. The next big question is, who will be the new captain?

Batting great Sunil Gavaskar feels KL Rahul is captaincy material and should be groomed as a future leader of the Indian cricket team.

“It’s a good thing that the BCCI is looking ahead. It’s important to think ahead,” said Gavaskar on Sports Tak.

“If India are looking to groom a new captain, then KL Rahul can be looked at. He has performed well. Even now in England, his batting was very good. He has been performing well in IPL and 50-overs cricket as well at the international stage. He can be made vice-captain.”

Rahul captains Punjab Kings in the IPL.

“He has shown very impressive leadership qualities in the IPL. He hasn’t let the burden of captaincy affect his batting. His name can be taken into consideration, added Gavaskar.
