Gambhir said- Punjab batsman's best is yet to come, he will have one season like Kohli

The UAE is all set to organize the IPL 2021 part-two and will begin on September 19. The cash-rich league will also see a number of new faces who have been included in place of several players who withdrew from Part-II. On the other hand, if we talk about the points table of this league so far, Delhi Capitals is at number one in this, while Punjab Kings is present in sixth place.

In the first half, the performance of the KL Rahul-led Punjab team was not very good and now this team would like to make a comeback. However, captain KL Rahul was one of the consistent performers for his team in IPL Phase One. Now Team India's former opener batsman Gautam Gambhir said a lot about KL's performance. 

Talking on Star Sports show Game Plan, Gambhir said that the world has not yet seen the best of KL Rahul. Gambhir feels that KL will score 2-3 centuries in a season and like Virat Kohli's season in 2016, Rahul will definitely have a season like this. Kohli had scored a total of 973 runs for RCB in the year 2016. 

Gambhir said that, we have not seen the best performance of KL Rahul. Yes, he has runs, but we have not yet seen what he can achieve with his batting. His one season can be like what Virat Kohli once did. He is the kind of player in white-ball cricket who can score 2-3 hundreds in a season and that too at a very good strike rate. And I hope it happens because it has been disappointing for Punjab Kings.
