KL Rahul All Set To Replace Injured Murali Vijay: Kohli

Team India forced to make changes after losing Murali Vijay due to a thumb injury.

A big opportunity for the classy KL Rahul as Murali Vijay failed to recover from his thumb injury. Team India have to make forced changes to their side as a result of this injury to Murali Vijay in the 1st innings of the 1st test match at Antigua.

He is a great asset to the team. His versatile batting skills will prove to be very useful for maintaining the team balance. Virat Kohli feels that the energetic opener is very excited to get onto the field and grab this golden opportunity by both the hands. He has played some good cricket in recent times. He got runs in the practice matches leading to this series and he also managed to score well in Zimbabwe where he was adjudged the Man of The Series for his good batting performance.

Indian Premier League 2016 was a huge turnaround for the youngster. A successful campaign with Royal Challengers Banglore cemented his position in the side for the Zimbabwe Tour. He has improved a lot with his batting skills. Last year he scored a ton in Sri Lanka but later on he was dropped against the Proteas.

a? He is a solid opener along with good fielding skills. He wants to score runs and pretty much wants to make an impact by making it count. An added advantage of having KL Rahul in the team is you can afford Wriddhiman Saha getting injured as Rahul is also a good wicketkeepera?, Says Virat Kohli.

a? We are not concerned about the opposition. We are happy about the fact that Jamaica is a result oriented ground with good bounce and carry. Bowlers are bowling in the right areas. So we just need to step onto the field once again with the determination and discipline that we showed in the 1st Test Match,a?
