The right-handed batsman from India has been dropped from the ongoing third test match between the Indian Cricket Team and the Australian Cricket Team at the Melbourne Cricket Ground but there is also another way to look at it. KL is just 26 and has age on his side. There are plenty of opportunities which might come forward as his journey has just begun.
KL had set the IPL 2018 on fire and had been given a consistent run in the Indian Team ever since. While he failed to entertain his fans as he did in the IPL, they always said- ” Form is temporary and class is permanent”. KL has class written all over him. When on a song, he is a treat to watch and his fans would be hoping that he could return to the scheme of things at the earliest possible.
In a recent interview to Sportstar, the right-handed batsman when asked a few tricky questions and the Karnataka born batsman replied in the most honest way possible. The star batsman was asked about who he considers to be his cricketing idol. The discarded Indian opener took no time to answer that one. He immediately responded by taking the names of both Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.
Further, he was asked about his secret crush, to which Rahul named Disha Patani as the one he absolutely adores. Interestingly, Disha Patani also played the role of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s X- Girlfriend in the movie: MS Dhoni The Untold Story.
Meanwhile, India declared their innings at 443-7 on day 2 and Australia went scratch-less for the 6 overs while they applied their trade with the willow in hand. Day 3 would be interesting and the first session could very well define the tone of the entire test match.
