Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra recently backed Indian batter KL Rahul ahead of the second Test against Bangladesh to be played in Mirpur from Thursday, December 22. Chopra wants Rahul to score runs in the match. Rahul scored 22 and 23 runs respectively in his two innings in India’s 188-run win in the first Test in Chattogram. With his opening partner Shubman Gill scoring his maiden Test century in the second innings, the stand-in skipper’s spot in the playing XI might have been at stake had Rohit Sharma been fit and available.

KL Rahul has been backed

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Chopra spoke about his expectations from Team India in the Mirpur Test. Speaking about Rahul, he said:

“There is nothing much to see from India’s viewpoint. You want KL Rahul to score runs because he is an amazing player. It is not that he has become a bad player but the environment in Indian cricket at the moment is that they are blaming Rahul whenever anything goes wrong.”

In addition to this, Chopra highlighted that everyone seems to be backing the Karnataka opener to be dropped at the moment, explaining:

“They are asking when Rahul will get dropped. In India, when someone does well, we want the other one to be left out. We are so fickle-minded, we change our opinions so quickly. It seems at the moment that there is no player more ordinary than KL Rahul because that environment has gotten created.

Rahul has had a poor 2022 with the bat. The 30-year-old has managed just 125 runs at a lowly average of 20.83 in the three Tests he has played this year.
