KL Rahul needs mental conditioning: Sunil Gavaskar
Commenting on the form of Rahul, former India cricketer Sunil Gavaskar said that he needs mental conditioning.
“We have Paddy Upton as the mental conditioning coach and if he has not done anything with him. While the batting coach can tell him his mistakes, there is a need for the mental conditioning coach to talk with the player to increase his confidence. He should tell Rahul that he has got the talent and he can score big runs,” Gavaskar had said in coversation with Sports Tak.
“Look, you have just played three matches and you have to play a total of 5 matches in the Super 12 stage. You do not have any other opener, I do not think you have an opener who can take the place of Rahul. So you need to show patience with him, we know what he can do when he is in full flow. I think some one needs to have a word with him,” he added.
