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