Brian Lara also said that KL Rahul will relish the opportunity of opening the batting order after Shikhar Dhawan has been ruled out. He also stated that with the techniques that he has, facing the new ball won’t be an issue for him.

Lara further mentioned about his expectations from the Indian cricketer and said that he is looking forward to see something special from him in the tournament. He also stated that according to him, KL Rahul is going to be one of the top run-scorers in the World Cup tournament.
