The Indian cricket team may have retained their dominance in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, but everyone is very concerned about the form of KL Rahul. After winning the Delhi test match, when the team for the last 2 test matches was announced, Rahul’s name was there, but he was removed from the vice-captain’s responsibility.
So far in this test series, KL Rahul has batted in 3 innings where he has been able to score only 20, 17 and 1 runs. In such a situation, it may be decided to include Shubman Gill, who is racing in excellent form, in the starting eleven in his place in the third Test. After the Delhi test match, all the players of the Indian team have taken a short break and will arrive in Indore on February 25.
On 19 February, when the Indian selection committee headed by Shiv Sundar Das announced the squad for the last 2 Test matches and the ODI squad, it also decided to release Rahul from the responsibility of vice-captain. Although captain Rohit Sharma and manager Rahul Dravid are constantly supporting Rahul in front of the camera in this bad stage, a different picture is seen in the dressing room.
A senior BCCI official said in his statement to Inside Sports that, in our opinion, we should help them as much as we can. His place in the team seems very uncertain, Rahul has done well in the past on overseas tours but this time he is not playing at that level and is struggling to keep his place in the team. We decided not to play much with the winning team and that’s why Rahul has stayed in the team.
With KL Rahul being removed from vice-captain’s responsibility, now Shubman Gill playing in the Indore test match is also considered almost certain. At the same time, in the third test match, all questions are being asked about which player will play the responsibility of the vice-captain. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma has been given the responsibility of choosing his successor.
