Should KL Rahul be Removed from all Three Formats?

On the tour of Bangladesh in 2022, KL Rahul played well in the first one-day international match. But in that game, KL Rahul played as the middle-order batter and not as the opener.

India didn’t have a good game with the bat and the Bangladeshi bowlers bundled the batting powerhouse of India to their second-lowest score.

The men in blue batters lasted for just 41.2 overs and scored just 186 runs. KL Rahul was the top scorer in that match with 73 runs.

However, after that, his performance went down as he scored just 14 runs in the second ODI and just eight runs in the third and final match of this fifty-overs series.

In the two matches of the red ball series, KL Rahul had got starts in both the Test matches. But he didn’t convert them into big centuries.

In the first innings of the opening match, Rahul scored 22 runs and in the second innings, he managed 23 runs. He continued his poor form in the second and the last Test match as well.

KL Rahul didn’t perform as a leader of this Indian Team. He made very good bowling changes as a skipper. But as a batter, he never stepped up.

In the first innings of the last Test match, KL Rahul scored just ten runs and seven runs in the 2nd  innings when India was chasing a score of 145 runs.

Dinesh Karthik, who played in the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia said that he would give couple more chances to KL Rahul.
