India has a 2-0 lead in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test series against Australia.
KL Rahul is the most talked-about cricketer in the Indian team right now. Despite Team India’s victory in the two Border-Gavaskar Trophy Tests, the Indian opener’s position is widely questioned. Rahul batted poorly in the two Tests, which India easily won. Notably, he has now lost the vice-captaincy for the remaining two Tests and will almost certainly miss out on a place in the playing XI.
Many former cricketers have expressed their thoughts on Rahul’s performances. Former Indian opener Aakash Chopra believes Rahul’s chances have now been exhausted. He also expressed his displeasure with coach Rahul Dravid and skipper Rohit Sharma’s support for Rahul.
Chopra engaged in a Twitter debate with former Indian pacer Venkatesh Prasad about Rahul’s place in the Test team. He posted screenshots of Rahul’s 38.64 average, which ranks third among all Indian batters. Since 2020, Rohit and Washington Sundar (only one test) have ranked first and second in SENA countries.
