Does KL Rahul deserve a place in the Indian Team: Indian team opener KL Rahul is constantly struggling with form. Even after this, he remains in the team. He is being given a chance by keeping an opener like Shubman Gill out. Captain Rohit Sharma explained why the team has so much faith in Rahul.

Rohit hinted that if a player has the potential, he will play for a long time in the team. Rahul has scored just one half-century since January 2022, while his last Test century came against South Africa in December 2021. In the Delhi Test against Australia, Rahul was dismissed for 17 in the first innings and managed just one run in the second innings. At the same time, he was dismissed after scoring only 20 runs in Nagpur.
