Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly said that KL Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav excites him the most. Ganguly is hopeful that Indian cricket looks after these two talented players.

In fact, the pair was instrumental in India’s first T20I win against England. Kuldeep Yadav was able to wreak havoc as he scalped a fifer as he breathed down the neck of the English batsmen.

Furthermore, KL Rahul played one of his best-limited overs knock to take India over the line. Ganguly was happy to note that Rahul played the traditional shots to get his runs in the opening match.

“KL Rahul excites me, seriously good player and a player who will score runs everywhere, in all formats. Kuldeep Yadav excites me, he is tremendous. Whats Kuldeep done, he has just bowled slow, he has bowled in the right areas, he has bowled a leg-spin and he bowled a goggly. That’s all, nothing much. He is one of the most successful bowlers in the world in T20 cricket. He has got the ability to win you Test matches,” Ganguly said while talking to Harsha Bhogle on Cricbuzz Unplugged.

Adding further, the Prince of Kolkata praised KL Rahul for his immaculate timing. Ganguly who played a huge role in revolutionizing Indian cricket said that Rahul has all the time in the world against fast bowling.

“The time he has to play is brilliant, especially fast bowling. The knock he played was outstanding. Even Rohit Sharma was batting at the other end and I am not comparing. Rohit has a remarkable record in the shorter formats of the game”.

Ganguly is hopeful that Indian cricket looks after Kuldeep Yadav as well as KL Rahul.

“May it was one of those days when you are not able to hit the gaps, which happens when you play for a long period of time. But KL Rahul never looked out of place. He showed the world, we spoke about Virat Kohli in the past, about how to play T20 cricket, just playing normally. When you see England bat when you see a Buttler playing a reverse flick, playing a lap shot and every other shot in the book. And then you see KL Rahul, just stands and hits over mid-off. If it is short, he paddles it over square leg. Complete cricketing shots and I hope Indian cricket looks after him”.
