Former Australia all-rounder Shane Watson said he wants KL Rahul to approach the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia next month with a “nothing to lose” mentality because that is how he bats best.
Throughout the Asia Cup and the ongoing home series against South Africa, Rahul’s strike rate came under scrutiny. As a result, Watson stated that Rahul must aim to be aggressive from the first ball of the World Cup in Australia in an interview with PTI.
He said, “KL Rahul is is one of my favourite batters. To me when he is batting at his best is when he is aggressive, he takes the game on and is not trying to control the game.”
“He has got that skill, when he is just reacting to the ball coming down, he has all the shots all around the ground against the best bowlers in the world. I love seeing him when he feels like he’s got nothing to lose, then he can even strike at 180 without taking too much risk. If he is able to do that (in Australia), there will be a lot of bowlers in trouble,” he added.
