India has entered ICC T20 World Cup has favourties and they need KL Rahul, opener to score. Captain Rohit Sharma and legendary No.3 Virat Kohli have proved their form in the previous tournaments. But KL Rahul, on the other hand, in the major matches has been failing continuously. In this World Cup, India played three matches with Pakistan, Netherlands and South Africa. KL Rahul scored 4,9,9 respectively and indirectly, increased pressure on Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav and others. Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli have been consistent this World Cup but KL Rahul has been a great concern.
Hence, Indian fans started asking for KL Rahul to be dropped ever since Netherlands match. Against South Africa with a mid-wicket six against Wayne Parnell, he looked like coming into his own and back to form. But he failed again. Now, questions have been raising against his inclusion for next games and Head Coach, Rahul Dravid came in support of KL Rahul. He said that the team is concerned about opener’s form and they back him in words and action too.
Rahul Dravid stated that KL Rahul showed good form in nets and against Australia in the warm-up match. He stated that the team supports him and hopes for his huge comeback in the competition. Rahul Dravid said that he wants to see KL Rahul scoring huge or being instrumental in next games as each game is important for India. On the other hand, as KL Rahul has been more consistent in IPL tournaments, fans have been trolling him and saying that tell the opener that it is actually IPL and not T20 World Cup. Well, whatever works.
