Opener KL Rahul, considered India’s future captain, managed to return to the team in the three-match series against Zimbabwe after recovering from a sports hernia. But during this the magic of his bat did not work and he could score 31 runs at an average of 15.50 while batting in 2 innings of three matches of the series.
In such a situation, former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris, who was included in the team for the Asia Cup, has expressed confidence of a great performance against Pakistan. Styris said Rahul is all set to rock the Asia Cup match against arch-rivals Pakistan on August 28.

Rahul got a chance to set foot on the pitch
Styris said, I am not upset about KL Rahul’s performance. If he had been playing 5-10 balls in every innings, I would have been worried but he faced 46 balls in the third innings. If this is the case then he has got a chance to spend some time on the pitch. This means that he will soon find that rhythm. It was more important than spending time in the nets. In such a situation, I think that in the match against Pakistan, we will be fully prepared to make a splash.

Will make a splash against Pakistan
Regarding Rahul’s form, Styris said, “I believe he will be fine too.” The reason for this is not Shaheen Afridi being with the Pakistani team. We know he is injured, the way he attacks the stumps. The most efficient way to get him out is KL Rahul, it makes him lbw and bowled. He is the only person to expose his weaknesses. In such a situation, Rahul has a chance to become a star.
