World Cup 2019: KL Rahul could be chosen for number four, says Sunil Gavaskar

Sunil Gavaskar has backed Kings XI Punjab opener KL Rahul as the ideal candidate for India’s number four spot in the upcoming World Cup.

The former Indian cricketer praised Rahul for showing great composure and determination in the ongoing season of IPL.

AdvertisingAfter being suspended from the Indian team for his controversial remarks on popular talk show ‘Koffee with Karan’, Rahul has only featured in one ODI in which he scored 26 while batting at number 3.

However, his recent form in the lucrative T20 league is likely to earn him a spot in the 15-member squad that will be announced on Monday.

The No.4 spot has been a highly contentious one and apart from Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav are the other candidates who are vying for the role.

India will start their World Cup campaign against South Africa at the Rose Bowl on June 5.
