The Indian cricket have retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after winning the first 2 matches of the series against Australia in Nagpur and in Delhi.
The Indian team have been solid throughout the series so far, both with the bat and the ball. But the same can’t be said for KL Rahul, who only managed to score past 20 runs only once in the 3 innings he played in the series.
Rahul has been going through a bad run of form for some quite some time and he was still part of the Playing XI, which led to some former player coming out in public and speak against. A huge amount of fans also supported.
Venkatesh Prasad was one of those who spoke against KL Rahul. He presented various stats showing how KL Rahul has failed to deliver strong performances from the last couple of years.
