KL Rahul: Indian cricket team’s journey in T20 World Cup 2022 has come to an end. In the semi-finals, England has shown the way out of the tournament by giving a crushing defeat to India. Throughout this tournament, there was constant talk about KL Rahul’s place in the Indian team. Rahul’s batting is often creating problems for the team and in such a situation now the question has also arisen whether Rahul’s place is really made in the team or he is being carried continuously.
How was Rahul’s performance in T20 International this year?
If Rahul’s performance in T20 International is looked at this year, then it is quite disappointing. Rahul playing as an opener has a strike rate of 126.53 which is not reasonable at all for quick cricket. Rahul has played 16 T20 International matches this year, in which 434 runs have come out of his bat. Six half-centuries have come out of his bat this year, but he has often disappointed the team in important matches.
Rahul’s playing style is affecting the team
The way Rahul bats while opening, the pressure on the batsman standing at the other end increases continuously. It is not even that after playing a few balls, Rahul covers them. If you bat like this continuously in T20 cricket, then definitely the team will have to bear its loss. Looking at the current figures, Rahul’s place is no longer made in the T20 team. India needs an opening batsman in T20.
