Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has commented on the fascinating debate surrounding KL Rahul’s place in the team. When the Board of Control for Cricket (BCCI) announced the squad for the third and fourth Tests against Australia, Rahul still had the support of the selectors and team management. After suffering in the first two Tests against Australia, Rahul is not expected to start with Rohit Sharma in the upcoming two games, according to Harbhajan Singh.
When Bhajji noticed that Rahul’s name did not have the title of “vice-captain” next to it in the India roster, he came to the conclusion that Shubman Gill would open opposite skipper Rohit in the forthcoming match.
When asked by India Today whether Rahul should have been included in the starting lineup, Harbhajan replied, “Yeah, I believe so.” “because when you’re not the vice-captain, it’s easier for management and selectors to make you sit out. No of how well you did prior to being named vice-captain, you will still be one of the eleven players that take the field for the match.
Talented player KL Rahul is now through a run-scoring slump. It is widely known. But I’m confident he’ll be successful with the bat. Nonetheless, Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma will open as a result of the vc tag being absent “Harbhajan noticed.
Rahul, who served as vice-captain in the first two Test matches against Australia, was absent from the BCCI’s list of players for the third and fourth games in the series. The alteration does imply that Rahul’s status within the Indian team has declined.
Rahul was brought up during the press conference that was conducted in New Delhi after the conclusion of the second Test. He gave the batter his whole attention and wouldn’t give up. This support will eventually be disclosed, along with whether or not he will be trusted to open the Indore Test once more.
