KL Rahul experience of opening in Tests is worth its weight in gold: Sanjay Bangar

KL Rahul experience of opening in Tests is worth its weight in gold: Sanjay Bangar. KL Rahul remained unbeaten on 70 at Stumps on Day 1 of the first Test between India and South Africa.

After only 59 overs of play on a rain-shortened day, India concluded Day 1 of the first Test against South Africa at Centurion on 208/8. KL Rahul has made a strong start to the Test match in which he will wear the wicketkeeping gloves for the first time.

The Karnataka cricketer batted at No. 6 and performed a courageous knock in challenging conditions to spare the visitors’ blushes. Rahul continued to bat undefeated on 70 off 105 balls, forming key partnerships with Shardul Thakur, Jasprit Bumrah, and Mohammed Siraj. Former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar praised Rahul after the day’s performance, saying that his earlier experience as a Test opener was worth its weight in gold.

“It’s the overall range of skills he possesses.” He’s quite effective against the new ball, having done so for the most of his Test career. 25 Test innings as an opener will be worth their weight in gold. That will come in helpful, but that was not the case today,” Bangar told Star Sports.
