KL Rahul is going through a bad phase in Test format
Can be out of the playing eleven of the third test
New Delhi. After the victory in the second Test against Australia in 3 days and before the start of the Indore Test, the player who is being talked about the most is KL Rahul. When Harbhajan Singh jumped into the ‘Jung’ of Akash Chopra and Venkatesh Prasad, even Gautam Gambhir did not lag behind. Now former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has also raised questions about KL Rahul’s place in the team.
Former wicket-keeper batsman Rashid Latif said on his YouTube channel that when India has a young opener like Shubman Gill, then KL Rahul does not have a place in the team. Now making excuses will not work. KL Rahul doesn’t deserve to be in the team. In the first 2 matches of the 4 Test series against Australia, KL failed miserably with the bat. He scored 20 runs in the Nagpur Test match, then got out after scoring 17 and one run in Delhi.
Gill may get a chance
Shubman Gill can be the opening partner of captain Rohit Sharma in the third Test match to be held in Indore. KL Rahul can be dropped from the playing XI. The snatching of the vice-captaincy from him is being linked to this. Please tell that there was a fierce fight between Akash Chopra and Venkatesh Prasad regarding KL Rahul. When Akash Chopra told Venkatesh Prasad to spread the agenda on his YouTube channel, the former fast bowler also responded strongly by tweeting a series of tweets. Venkatesh Prasad said, Akash Chopra made a video humiliating me, so I am answering him publicly. Venkatesh also shared an old tweet of Akash regarding Rohit Sharma, in which it has been written about the Hitman being dropped from the team.
Entering this battle, Harbhajan Singh said that can we all leave KL Rahul alone? He has not committed any kind of crime. Harbhajan said, KL Rahul is a top class player. We all have gone through such bad times in international cricket. This is not happening for the first and last time. That’s why he will also return.
