A 3 ODI series is being played between India and Australia. The first match of this series is being played today i.e. on 17 March at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. At the same time, in the absence of regular captain Rohit Sharma in this match, all-rounder Hardik Pandya is handling the captaincy of the team in the first match.
But, in the meantime, Pandya once again gave a place in the team to KL Rahul, who flopped in Test matches. However, this time he has embarrassed the team management not with his poor batting but with his wicketkeeping. You can guess this by watching this video which is going viral.
KL Rahul dropped a simple catch:
The days of KL Rahul, the senior player of the Indian cricket team, are not going smoothly. He is not fitting in the playing XI of Team India in any format of the game. However, even after all this, the team management and captain Hardik Pandya included him in the team in the first match of the series. But, this time he has been given a place in the team not as an opener but as a wicket-keeper batsman.
Meanwhile, a video of him is going viral on social media. In which wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul is presenting his bad wicketkeeping. The third over of the first innings was going on. Earlier, on the last ball of the second over of the innings, Siraj clean bowled Travis Head and sent him to the pavilion. In such a situation, Team India’s bowlers were trying to put pressure on the Kangaroo batsmen, when KL Rahul left an easy run out of Mitchell Marsh on the first ball of the third over.
Mitchell Marsh played the ball with a light hand. Steve Smith, standing on the non-striker, ran to take the run. Marsh was only halfway down the crease when the ball slipped out of the hands of KL Rahul and India lost a simple run out. At the same time, Pandya’s anger broke out at the poor fielding of KL Rahul. While Steve Smith was seen laughing.
