Langer complimented Rahul and said that he is fortunate to have him as a captain in a video that was uploaded by the LSG’s official X handle.
“When I was an Australian coach and we had a series against India, I never used to relax until Virat Kohli and KL Rahul got out. Because he is (Rahul) so dangerous player and he is such a beautiful elegant looking player,” said Langer.
Rahul is equally adept at countering pace and spin, according to Langer.
“He has experience. He can play to both sides of the ground. He plays spin and quick bowling well. I feel really grateful and I feel blessed to have a captain like KL Rahul. I am excited about that (teaming with KL Rahul),” he added.
