Team India’s star batsman KL Rahul, who got married to Bollywood actor Sunil Shetty’s daughter Athiya Shetty a few days ago, is currently in Indore as part of the Border – Gavaskar Trophy. It is known that India will play the third Test against Australia at Indoor venue. Before this Test, Rahul along with his wife went to Ujjain Mahakaleshwar Temple, a famous shrine near Indore.
At Mahakaleshwar in Ujjain every morning at four o’clock in the morning there is a Bhasma Aarti program to Lord Shiva. Rahul-Athiya couple attended the event. As Rahul’s form has not been good in recent times, these two also performed Nava Graha Puja to see which planet is holding him back.
It is noteworthy that Rahul – Atiyas worship in traditional clothes. After the puja, both of them meditated for a long time in Nandi Hills. After that they went around the Mahakaleshwar temple. The temple priests gave theertha prasadas to this couple. Videos and photos of Rahul – Athiya’s Ujjain temple visit have now gone viral.
Rahul has been facing criticism for his worst performance in recent times. Rahul is failing miserably in the Test series with Bangladesh last year as well as in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. After his century in South Africa last year, Rahul averaged 15.90 in Tests. More importantly, Rahul’s score in the last ten innings is 8, 12, 10, 22, 23, 10, 2, 20, 1. Rahul is struggling to reach the 30-run mark.
While ex-cricketers are raising flags on Rahul’s failure, the BCCI has also removed him from the vice-captaincy for the remaining two Tests against Australia recently announced. On the other hand, pressure will also increase on the team management to skip Rahul and play Shubman Gill. In this background, will Rahul be in the final team for the indoor test which actually starts from March 1..? Will he play anyway? Or..? That is interesting. If Rahul Ganaka is given a chance again and fails in Indore too, then he will be limited to IPL, but it is impossible to get into the national team…!
