INDvsAUS: As part of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, it is known that Team India’s opener KL Rahul, who failed miserably in the first two Tests, has been sidelined for the third Test.
Team India’s veteran batsman KL Rahul is struggling with poor form and the team management has dropped him in Indore. Shubman, who is in super form in limited overs, is playing Gill as an opener with Rohit.
However, former Australian captain Michael Clarke reacted differently in the context of team India fans and former cricketers (especially Venkatesh Prasad) expressing joy over playing Rahul in the indoor match. He said that it would have been better if he had supported Rahul.
Clarke told Rev Sports… ‘I like KL Rahul’s batting a lot. He is a very talented cricketer. Currently, India have won two Tests in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. The team also has a chance to win the series.
In this context, why avoid Rahul..? Although I am the captain of Team India, I would definitely fight for Rahul with the team management. At present, Rahul may not be able to run in a manner that is below par. But won’t India win the matches..
Clarke expressed his displeasure with the manner in which Rahul was dismissed. Clarke expressed hope that Rahul will get back to his form soon as he is facing criticism no matter how he plays due to his form.
Meanwhile, India continues to falter in the second Test. In the first innings, the Aussie spinners were bowled out for 109 runs. Aussies scored 197 runs in the first innings. Thus a crucial lead of 88 runs was secured. And in the second innings too, the failure of the Indian batters continues.
