Perth: With growing anticipation over KL Rahul’s recent struggle with form from the start of the T20 World Cup, the Indian team management is not looking to drop the opener in upcoming games.
Ahead of the crucial encounter with South Africa on Sunday, Indian batting coach Vikram Rathour said that the management is not looking for any replacement for KL Rahul and will continue to back the opener.
Talking at the press conference, he said “We are not thinking anything like that (to replace KL Rahul with Rishabh Pant). He has been batting well. He did well in practice matches. Two matches are a small sample size,”.
He further talked about the bowling attack of the side and said that the management will consider Yuzvendra Chahal after taking a look at the wicket in Perth. About the strategy regarding seamers on a bouncy Perth pitch, the coach said, “We have four seamers ready.”
Talking about Rishabh Pant’s chances of playing in the upcoming games , Rathour said, “Only 11 players can play. We have already told Pant to be ready. He is a great batter. His opportunity could come soon and he is preparing for it.”
