K L Rahul is the son of K N Lokesh, who is a well-known academician. He was also a great fan of Cricket. He was such a big fan of Sunil Gavaskar that he decided to name his son as the name of Sunil Gavaskar son. Those were days when information used to pass quite slowly. He couldn’t exactly remember the name of Gavaskar’s son, and thought that he is Rahul Gavaskar. He named his son like that – Kannaur Lokesh Rahul. Had he been little bit alert, the name of current Indian test opener would have been K N Rohan.
