Rajasthan Royals will look to continue their winning run in IPL 2023 as they face Lucknow Super Giants in Match 26 at Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur on April 19. The Sanju Samson-led side finally managed to beat Gujarat Titans by three wickets in their last game after three failed attempts in the 2022 season.
Ahead of their next fixture, former India cricketer Virender Sehwag has issued a warning to the Royals, saying that LSG captain KL Rahul has returned to form with his 74-run knock against Punjab Kings. He further said that RR don’t have any other bowler other than Trent Boult who can give Rahul a tough time.
“KL Rahul is back in form. He scored runs in the previous match. Yes, his strike rate may not have met people’s expectations, but his form is a great sign. Rajasthan doesn’t have any other fast bowler apart from Trent Boult who has express pace or is very dangerous. They do have dangerous spinners, but if KL Rahul bats for long, he will surely take them apart,” Sehwag said on Cricbuzz.
“If you talk about establishing yourself in the Indian team, I believe KL Rahul is far better than Sanju Samson. He has played Test matches and scored hundreds in many countries. He has performed well in ODIs, both as an opener and in the middle order, and has also scored runs in T20 cricket,” Sehwag added.
