India Great Blasts Opener Following Yet Another Weak Performance Against Australia, Citing KL Rahul’s “Inclusion Shakes Belief In Fairness”


In the second Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, Rahul’s disastrous streak has persisted. He was only able to achieve a 20 on the first test. Rahul was out on Day 2 of the second Test for 17 from 41 balls. The gifted batter’s most recent Test half-century came against South Africa in Johannesburg in January 2022. In December 2021, he scored his last Test century against the same opposition. He struggled to get a significant knock because of his poor start.

Former Indian bowler Venkatesh Prasad attacked the opener after Rahul played yet another subpar ball.

“And the wild run keeps going. It has more to do with the management’s intransigence in sticking with a player who hasn’t exactly looked the part. No top order batsman has played this many tests with such a poor average in at least the last 20 years of Indian cricket. His inclusion is purposefully denying talented and in-form players the chance to make the starting lineup, Prasad said.

“Shikhar had a test average of 40+, Mayank had 41+ with two double hundreds, Shubhman Gill was in incredible form, and Sarfaraz’s wait seemed never-ending. Many domestic performances are frequently disregarded.

“His involvement casts doubt on the justice system. Both SS Das and S Ramesh averaged over 38 but only played in 23 Test matches, despite having tremendous potential. Rahul’s continued selection creates the false impression that India lacks batting quality. His average over the previous five years has been below 27 in 47 inn

“In my opinion, he is not currently among the top ten openers in India, but he keeps getting opportunities. Players like Kuldeep Yadav perform as man of the match, yet the next game, they are benched with the excuse that “horses for courses.” KL is not a horse, in any way. Sad”
