Ind vs Zim: KL Rahul’s return will hurt Shubman Gill, know how

New Delhi. KL Rahul ahead of Asia Cup ODI series against Zimbabwe (KL Rahul) This will be a great opportunity for us to test the rhythm. In such a situation, he will play Shikhar Dhawan in the upcoming matches. (Shikhar Dhawan) Would love to start the innings with If Rahul, who is leading the team on this tour, will open the innings, then Shubman Gill, who played this role with Dhawan on the tour of West Indies. (Shubman Gill) May have to come to bat at the third order.

T20 World Cup for the Indian team right now (T20 World Cup) Paramount and Gill is not a part of the Indian team as far as the shortest format is concerned. In such a situation, before the Asia Cup starting on August 27, the team management would like to give enough batting opportunity to Rahul, who is returning from injury. Head coach Rahul Dravid will not be with the team for the three-match series starting in Harare from Thursday (August 18). In his place, National Cricket Academy (NCA) chief VVS Laxman will play the role of coach. It is almost certain that Laxman will follow the blueprint set by the head coach.

Rahul’s return has also created problems for the young top-order batsman Gill. Gill batted brilliantly in the 50-over format in the West Indies. He was named Man of the Series after match-winning innings of 64, 43 and 98 not out. Former selector of the national team and Test opener Devang Gandhi said on this issue, “I think Shubman is being groomed properly by the Indian team management.

He has done very well in ODIs on Caribbean soil. I think the team is preparing the players in such a way that they can bat at any position. Shubman may have to come at number three for this particular series.

Former Indian player Deep Das Gupta also agreed with Devang’s words. He said, “It is difficult for a player after being in such a good rhythm. The team’s target for the time being will be to prepare Rahul as an opener for the Asia Cup T20.

He should get a lot of time to bat and that is my priority. I think it will be a short term arrangement as I think Shubman is being groomed as an opener for the ODI World Cup.”
