“Ready for responsibility and challenge” KL Rahul on being named the Vice Captain for India’s limited over series in Australia

BCCI announced the Indian squad that will be travelling to Australia for the 2 month-long series. There were a lot of surprises and some of the selections were expected. Rohit Sharma’s exclusion from the side was a big question raiser but was later clarified as he is suffering an injury.

In absence of Rohit, KL Rahul has been named the vice-captain for the limited over Indian team. KL Rahul is currently leading KXIP for the first time in the IPL and has done some good job. He is also the orange cap holder as he has 595 runs under his belt in the 12 games he has played.

“It is a very happy and proud moment. I was not expecting it, but I am very happy. I am ready for responsibility and challenge and I will try to do my best for my team as much as I can,” KXIP’s official website quoted Rahul as saying.

“I am looking forward to the coming tour but the next 2-3 weeks before that are very important. The next 2-3 months will be very important. I am thinking about one day at a time, not much forward at the moment,” he further added.
