New Delhi. India has started the Border Gavaskar Trophy as per expectations. In the first Test, the hosts defeated Australia by 132 runs. But the discussions regarding team selection are not over yet. The issue is KL Rahul, who has been a victim of criticism since last year. He again returned to the pavilion cheaply against Australia, after which he is being trolled fiercely.

In the first Test, Rahul faced 71 balls and could score only 20 runs. Rahul is being continuously supported by Team India. But he defies expectations every time. Double centurion like Shubman Gill has to warm the bench behind him. Fans are constantly demanding Rahul to be dropped from the playing XI. At the same time, many former cricketers have also objected to the opportunities being given to them. Now the question on everyone’s mind is whether he will be included in the playing XI for the second Test in Delhi? Former cricketers Sunil Gavaskar and Madan Lal have supported Rahul and demanded another chance for him.

He should get another chance – Sunil Gavaskar

Quoting India Today, Sunil Gavaskar said, ‘I think the way he has batted in the last one-two years, he has done well. I think he should be given another chance. I am sure he will be backed for the Test match in Delhi. After that you can consider it because you have an in-form batsman Shubman Gill ready to replace him.

KL Rahul or Shubman Gill… how will the captain and coach solve the riddle of the opener?

Vikram Rathor reminded century

Former Indian cricketer Vikram Rathour reminded a press conference of KL Rahul’s century, which he scored in Johannesburg, South Africa. Rahul is one of the 11 players who have scored a century in South Africa. At the same time, Madan Lal also said about Rahul, ‘He has the ability but he has been in bad form recently. Scoring against Australia is a big challenge in itself and getting those runs boosts the morale. But he may get stuck here. However, on the basis of his ability, he should get another chance.
