Disappointed with Rahul’s slow batting?

In that match, Rahul scored 79 runs, but took 58 balls for it. Before that, in many other matches too, the team had to bear the brunt of Rahul’s slow batting.
Rahul is the vice-captain of the team
KL Rahul is the vice-captain of the Indian team. At the same time, Gautam Gambhir has selected Ishaan Kishan in his place. Ishaan did not score consistently in IPL 2022 but he is known to bat fast. He scored 76 off 48 balls in the first T20 against South Africa and 34 off 21 balls in the second T20I against South Africa. He can hit the wicket regardless of the wicket but that is not the case with Rahul. For More Info Join LiveInfo
