New Delhi: Veteran Indian cricketer Venkatesh Prasad lashed out at the Indian team management for persisting KL Rahul to open with Rohit Sharma and stated that batter’s inclusion costs other talented batters a place in the side.

KL Rahul is going through a rough phase in his international career. He was dismissed for 17 runs in the first innings in the second test, with a total of 37 runs in two innings in the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy.

Venkatesh Prasad took to Twitter and added that “And the torrid run continues. More to do with the rigidity of the management to persist with a player who just hasn’t looked the part. No top-order batsman in at least the last 20 years of Indian cricket has played these many tests with such a low average,”.

Prasad further stated that deserving players who have delivered match-winning performances have been sidelined, citing Kuldeep Yadav who was dropped after being named the player of the match.

He further added that “As per me, he is not among the 10 best openers in India but is being given endless chances. Guys like Kuldeep Yadav put in man-of-the-match performances and the next game are dropped with theories like horses for courses. In any course, KL is not a horse. Sad,”.

At the end of the second day, Australia had scored 61 runs with the loss of one wicket in their second innings, taking their lead to 62 runs with nine wickets in hand. Travis Head scored 39 of 40 balls while Marcus Labuschagne remained unbeaten on 16.
