Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal believes that India batsman Lokesh Rahul is a “star in [the] making”.
Akmal was highly impressed with Rahul’s performance in the recent five-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand, which India won 5-0.
Rahul scored 224 runs in five matches, which included two half-centuries, at an average of 56 and a strike-rate of 144.51.
He maintained his red-hot form in the first ODI, which India lost by four wickets, as he made an unbeaten 88, which came off 64 balls and included three boundaries and six sixes.
