KL Rahul: The 2023 Asia Cup will see the Super 4 match between India and Sri Lanka. Both openers of Team India i.e. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill gave the team a good start but as soon as Shubman Gill was out, the wickets fell one after the other. The situation became such that it became difficult for Team India to reach the score of 200. Apart from Rohit Sharma, no other batsman could cross the 50 mark. Meanwhile, KL Rahul may not have played a big innings but he is being praised a lot during this time. Also tell us why this happened.
KL Rahul returns to Team India after almost five months
KL Rahul played IPL 2023 for his team LSG. It was still the initial phase and due to injury he had to leave not only the IPL but also Team India in the future. After about five months, if we give the right numbers, he returns to Team India after 130 days. This game was against no one but Pakistan. In this match, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli batted brilliantly and completed a century. This was KL Rahul’s first century in the ODI against Pakistan. After that, when Team India came out to bowl, Ishan Kishan kept the first few overs but then KL Rahul was seen carrying out that responsibility throughout the innings.
This is why KL Rahul is being praised
After about 15 hours, when Team India took on Sri Lanka again, KL Rahul’s strike came early again. By the time KL Rahul came to bat, Team India’s top order had completely collapsed. Even after that, KL Rahul tried to build a good partnership with Ishan Kishan. While on the one hand Ishan Kishan played very slowly, which he is not known for, KL Rahul on the other hand also batted well. He played a short but responsible innings of 39 runs in 44 balls. However, after KL Rahul’s dismissal, there was once again a spate of wickets falling and Team India failed to post a big score. KL Rahul deserves some credit for everything he has done during this time, which was also visible on social media.
