New Delhi: The first Test between India and Australia is being played in Nagpur city. By the end of the second day’s play, Team India had made a lead of 144 runs. Captain Rohit Sharma had scored a brilliant century. The same team India’s opener batsman KL Rahul is under threat. He flopped in the first test. After his continuous flop performance, Team India’s batting coach Vikram Rathor has given a hint regarding his spot.
After the end of the second day’s play, reporters asked Vikram in the press conference, is KL Rahul’s place in danger? Answering this question, Vikram said, ‘If we talk about Rahul, in the last 10 innings he has played, some are centuries and some are half-centuries. He has scored centuries in South Africa and England. So according to this, I do not think that we should discuss the possibility of his being in the playing XI.
