India vice-captain in Tests, KL Rahul is having the most forgettable time of his life. In the last few months, whenever he has failed to deliver with the bat, he has had to face the fans’ wrath. Memes and abuse have become the new normal for Rahul. Not to forget, even some of the fans insisted his now-wife Athiya Shetty to reconsider her decision to marry him.

Meanwhile, the right-hander has been facing some serious bashing from not just the fans but also the former players. On the other hand, India domestic’s Donald Bradman – Sarfaraz Khan isn’t getting any chances while Rahul is getting one despite repeated failures. Meanwhile, the fans have once bashed the Indian selectors for choosing Rahul over Khan for the two Tests against Australia.

Team India squad for 3rd and 4th Test: Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul, S Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, KS Bharat (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), R Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, R Jadeja, Mohd Shami, Mohd Siraj, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Umesh Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat

KL Rahul’s inclusion shakes belief in justice: Venkatesh Prasad

“And the torrid run continues. More to do with rigidity of the management to persist with a player who just hasn’t looked the part. No top order batsman in atleast last 20 years of Indian cricket has played these many tests with such a low average. His inclusion is deliberately denying talented guys, in form guys an opportunity to be in the 11. Shikhar had a test avg of 40+ , Mayank has of 41+ with 2 double hundreds, Shubhman Gill in sublime form, Sarfaraz never ending wait.. Many domestic performances constantly ignored.

“His inclusion shakes belief in Justice. SS Das had great potential,so did S Ramesh,both avgd 38+but did not get beyond 23 test matches. Rahul’s consistent inclusion gives an impression of lack of batting talent in India which isn’t true. Last 5 years his avg is below 27 in 47 inn.

“As per me ,he is currently not amongst the current 10 best opener’s in India but is being given endless chances. Guys like Kuldeep Yadav put in man of the match performances and next game are dropped with theories like Horses for courses. In any course ,KL is not a horse. Sad,”  Venkatesh Prasad wrote on Twitter.
