Team India’s stylish batsman KL Rahul is not going through a good phase at the moment. He had already lost his place in the T20 team due to his poor form that now he has to be dropped from the playing XI in the Test team. After a poor performance in the first two Tests against Australia, Shubman Gill has been given a chance in his place. Not only this, Rahul also had to lose the vice-captaincy of the Indian team.
In ODI cricket, this responsibility has been given to Hardik Pandya, while in Test cricket at this time BCCI has not selected any player as vice-captain. Gautam Gambhir, the former opening batsman of the Indian team, is also worried about the form of this star player.
In fact, after the Test series, Rahul will play a 3-match ODI series against Australia and after that he will play for Lucknow Supergiants in IPL 2023, where he will also take over the captaincy of the franchise. Gambhir is the mentor of this team.
On Rahul’s form before the IPL, Gambhir said, “Such things happen to all cricketers. Name one player who has shown consistency throughout his career.” Gambhir said that such things are only good in order to make you better.
He said, ‘When you are out of the playing XI, it should hurt you. If he gets hurt, it is a very good thing for us. When you see someone else playing and you are drinking water yourself, it must hurt.
