KL Rahul has not been in the best of form in Test cricket. He scored 18 runs in two innings in the Delhi Test. In the solitary batting innings at Nagpur, he scored 20 off 71 balls. He has been very inconsistent and patchy with the bat in hand and has not been able to get going, of late. Overall, Rahul has scored 2642 runs in Test cricket so far.

A lot of talk has been going on regarding KL Rahul’s dwindling form in Test Cricket and there was a heated debate between Venkatesh Prasad and Aakash Chopra regarding the same.

“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 …” Prasad, recently, wrote on Twitter.

In response, this is what Chopra had to say,

“Venky Bhai, Test match chal raha hai. How about, at least, waiting for both the innings to get over. All of us are in the same team i.e. Team India. Not asking you to hold back your thoughts but timing could be a little better. After all, our game is all about the ‘timing’.

Here are the tweets:

To which Prasad replied,”

“Honestly it doesn’t matter , Aakash. In my view it is very fair criticism even if he scores a half century in the second innings.  And between the match or after the match is irrelevant here. Best wishes for your lovely videos on YT, i do enjoy them. Rahul has not been at his best with the bat.”

The Indian squad for the next two Tests are to be announced. Rahul has faced a lot of backlash on his poor run with the bat. Amidst that, Rohit Sharma stated that the Indian Team will continue to back Rahul amid the string of low scores and that it is not easy for anyone to bat on these pitches.
