KL Rahul can captain Team India, the upcoming ODI series with Sri Lanka will be the first challenge under the leadership of head coach Gautam Gambhir

KL Rahul Captain Team India: Team India is going to leave for Sri Lanka tour at the end of July. 3 ODIs and 3 T20 matches will be played between India and Sri Lanka between 27 July and 7 August. Recently news came that BCCI may rest Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jaspreet Bumrah for the Sri Lanka tour. Now there is speculation that KL Rahul will not only return in the ODI series but can also take over the captaincy of the team. This will be the first series under the new head coach of the Indian team, Gautam Gambhir.

2 different captains on Sri Lanka tour?

KL Rahul could not make it to the T20 World Cup squad, but now he can play the role of leader by returning to the ODI series against Sri Lanka. On the other hand, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have retired from T20 cricket and it is expected that Hardik Pandya can take over the command of the T20 team against Sri Lanka. Media reports have said that BCCI is showing confidence in Rahul because he is capable of performing consistently well in the long format. Rahul has so far scored 2,820 runs in 75 matches in his ODI career at an average of 50.35, which includes 7 centuries and 18 fifties.

KL Rahul had a wonderful performance in the 2023 World Cup

With Gautam Gambhir becoming the head coach, there is speculation that a new era is about to begin in Indian cricket. Let us remind you that KL Rahul scored more than 450 runs in the 2023 ODI World Cup. He scored 452 runs in 10 innings at an amazing average of 75.33. He also scored a century and 2 half-centuries in that tournament. It is also worth noting that KL Rahul and Gautam Gambhir have worked together in Lucknow Super Giants in IPL. Rahul is the captain of LSG, while Gambhir was the mentor of the Lucknow franchise in 2022 and 2023. In such a situation, it would not be wrong to expect that Rahul can be seen as the long-term captain of Team India in the ODI format.
