KL Rahul's selection massively demotivates Ranji players: Sanjay Manjrekar (PC: Social Media)
Team India has been announced for the Australia series starting from the last week of next month. In this international series, the Indian team has to play three ODIs, three T20s and four Test matches. Team India will play in this series led by Indian captain Virat Kohli. At the same time, playing Rohit Sharma, the vice-captain of Team India, is still doubtful.
KL Rahul’s selction for Test series:
But, the matter is about KL Rahul’s selection in the Test team for the tour here. Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has expressed his displeasure at Rahul being selected in the team. Sanjay Manjrekar has questioned Rahul’s selection by tweeting.
Manjrekar not happy:
Manjrekar said that taking Rahul into the team means that you (BCCI) are discouraging Ranji Trophy cricketers who work hard to earn a place in the national team. He also presented the data of Rahul’s last five Test series.
The former Indian batsman wrote on Twitter, “You have set a bad example by including a player in the Test team based on performance in the IPL. Especially if the player has failed in his last few Test matches. If the success or failure of the player does not matter, then such a selection will cause massive disappointment among Ranji players. ”
He said in his second tweet, “KL Rahul’s performance in his last five Test series – average of 7.1 against South Africa, average of 29 against England, average of 18 in home series against West Indies, 10.7 against Australia and West Indies. Average of 25.4 against. Rahul is extremely fortunate that he was given a place in the Test team, given his performance in IPL and white ball. But now I just hope that he makes the most of this opportunity. Best wishes to them! ”
