Lokesh Rahul was part of India’s Under-19 team for the 2010 World Cup in New Zealand. The 21-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman from Bangalore came to prominence with his fine performance for the Bangalore Brigadiers in the Karnataka Premier League. A batsman with tight technique, Lokesh looks up to Rahul Dravid as his role model and the legendary India batsman also holds the youngster in high regard. Following his 250 runs in the 2013 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (India’s domestic T20 competition), Lokesh was drafted by the Royal Challengers Bangalore squad ahead of IPL 2013. In IPL 2014, this young talent will feature in the Sunrisers Hyderabad squad.
