1 min read

Opener KL Rahul on Wednesday said Indian skipper Virat Kohli has already showed signs of being a “great leader” with his energy, passion and penchant for leading by example.

With Mahendra Singh Dhoni having relinquished captaincy, Rahul said it’s great to have both of them in the side. “It's good to have a young leader and also to have MS in the team, who not only guide Virat as a skipper, but also the youngsters”, said Rahul.

There's a bit of competition for the opening slots with Ajinkya Rahane waiting in the wings, but Rahul said it is motivating.

Talking about English batsmen, Rahul said they all are hard-hitting ones, but Jos Buttler could play all around the wicket.
