India’s star wicket-keeper batter, KL Rahul, who was sidelined for the first two matches of the Asia Cup 2023 against Pakistan and Nepal due to an injury, has now joined the Indian team in Sri Lanka for their Super 4 clash against the Babar Azam & Co, set to be played on September 10.
The relentless rain in Colombo has compelled Team India to move their practice sessions indoors. KL Rahul has been making the most of this situation, focusing on his wicket-keeping and batting skills during net sessions as he’s eager to make a comeback in Blue.
Now, the Indian management faces a dilemma as Ishan Kishan, who filled in for KL Rahul at number five in the opening game against Pakistan, seized the opportunity brilliantly, scoring 82 runs when the top order struggled. The question arises: should Team India stick with Ishan Kishan, or revert to KL Rahul, a stalwart at number five in ODIs?
