Gambhir said in Star Sports show ‘Game Plan’, “We haven’t seen the best performance of KL Rahul yet. He has scored runs but we haven’t seen what he can achieve in batting. He can play a session like Virat Kohli once played. He is such a limited overs cricketer who can score two, three centuries in a season at the best strike rate.

Regarding the other teams, Gambhir said the conditions in the UAE are favorable for defending champions Mumbai Indians. Mumbai and Chennai Super Kings will face each other in the first match on Sunday.
Gambhir said, “Look at the situation in Chepauk or Delhi, they are completely different from Wankhede. I think the conditions there will be favorable for Mumbai pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Trent Boult. They will get swing and they will prove to be dangerous.
Regarding RCB and India captain Virat Kohli, he said, “It is a different challenge for Virat because after playing the five-match Test series, he has to play in the T20 format immediately. He didn’t get any time in between. If RCB have to qualify for the playoffs, then Virat and AB de Villiers will have to score runs.
