Team India’s deputy skipper in limited-overs cricket, KL Rahul said that Team India requires an urgent transformation in the limited squad. He also added that he has full confidence in his leadership skills despite the fact that his team suffered a 3-0 whitewash in the ODI series against South Africa. A 3-0 drubbing in South Africa is surely a timely reminder that India needs to overhaul their approach to ODIs and T20Is, as the team led by KL Rahul were whitewashed after their four-run loss in Cape Town on Sunday.

During a chat on Sports Today, KL Rahul said, “It’s a huge honor and it’s a dream come true to represent my country and lead my country. Yes, the results didn’t go our way but I think there was massive learning. We are at a stage right now where we have World Cups as the focus and we are working towards getting better as a team. I feel like we have played very good cricket over the last four or five years but it’s also time for us to get better and transform our white-ball cricket.”

Talking about the same, KL Rahul said, “I don’t use that as an excuse for not winning, but I think we are a work in progress as a team. I learned so much while leading. Losses make you so much stronger than starting off with victories. My career has always been that way. I have always got everything slowly. I am confident in my leadership skills and I know that I can bring out the best from my players. I know I can do well for my country and franchise.”
