Former India cricketer and RCB legend, Robin Uthappa reckons that KL Rahul should be included in India's T20 World Cup squad, considering his current form in the ongoing IPL.

The LSG skipper is one of the leading run-getters in the competition and played a scintillating 82 run knock Vs Chennai Super Kings, which propelled his side to victory. Moreover, in the last three games, KL Rahul has made an effort to increase his strike-rate, for which he has come under scrutiny so many times.

Uthappa bats for KL's inclusion

Uthappa stated that he loved the way KL batted against CSK. He doubted the LSG skipper ahead of the tournament, but the way he is playing at the moment, the 32-year-old should be in the Indian team for the World Cup.

"Delightful, absolutely delightful. And I think what you got to love about this inning is the fact that he played just to the merit of the ball, didn't really try to do too much, didn't try to manufacture shots. He just played to the merit of the field."

"In fact, over the last couple of weeks, I was thinking, I don't think he's going to figure in the in the World Cup squad, but I think if he continues to bat the way he's batting right now, he'll find himself a spot there. Whether it's as a reserve opener and wicket keeper, that's a dual role that he can fulfil. I think you might just see him back in that in the in the front runners of that spot," Uthappa said on Jio Cinema.

So far in IPL 2024, KL Rahul has amassed 286 runs in 7 matches, with a strike-rate of 143. Moreover, he is also the 4th highest run-getter in this IPL season.
