“Looks so good in blazer”- Dale Steyn sends a message to KL Rahul on his Test captaincy debut

KL Rahul

The second game of the ICC World Test Championship series between the Indian cricket team and the South African cricket team is currently underway at The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. The Indian cricket team was expected to play under the captaincy of Virat Kohli in this Test match, but just before the toss, it was learned that KL Rahul will be making his Test captaincy debut for the Indian cricket team. The reason behind it was Virat’s unfortunate injury.

KL Rahul came out for the toss along with home team’s captain Dean Elgar. He won his first toss as international team captain and elected to bat first at The Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. While India have got off to a shaky start in Johannesburg, former South African fast bowler Dale Steyn was impressed with the way KL Rahul carried himself as a captain at the toss.

So far in the second game of the ICC World Test Championship series between the Indian cricket team and the South African cricket team, the home side has bowled 32 overs. The Indian cricket team has scored 63 runs for the loss of three wickets. Mayank Agarwal scored 26 runs, while experienced batters Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane got out off successive deliveries from Duanne Olivier without contributing much to the team’s total.

Captain KL Rahul is currently batting in the middle with Hanuma Vihari, who has replaced Virat Kohli in the playing XI. Fans should note that Vihari is playing his first Test for the Indian cricket team since the drawn SCG Test match against the Australian cricket team.

How Dale Steyn reacted to KL Rahul’s new look at the toss

Continuing the tradition, KL Rahul came out in a blazer with the BCCI logo on it for the toss with Dean Elgar. Seeing Rahul in a new avatar, Dale Steyn tweeted:
