IND vs SL: KL Rahul’s T20I Career Over-Reports. In the upcoming series against Sri Lanka, India’s T20I squad does not contain KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, or Virat Kohli.

The trio will be back for the ODIs, but Rahul won’t serve as Rohit Sharma’s vice-captain. The ODI series’ replacement for Rohit is Hardik Pandya. On January 3, the T20I series gets underway in Mumbai. On January 10, 12, and 15, the ODIs will be held.

The management has had to make a difficult decision about KL Rahul’s future given his batting performance in all formats. Three of his most recent five T20I scores were under 10, and two of them were fifty. His 50s came against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Since the T20 World Cup in Australia, Rahul has had difficulty. His performance in Test games hasn’t improved much either. He was Rohit Sharma’s replacement as India’s captain for the two Test matches. Rahul barely contributed to India’s 2-0 victory in the Test series with runs with the bat. His scores in the two-match series’ four innings were 22, 23, 10, and 2.

Rahul requested a sabbatical from T20I cricket, according to reports in Cricketaddictor, but even if he had been available, the selectors would not have given him a chance for the forthcoming series against Sri Lanka.

The selection committee for the Indian T20 International and One Day International teams, which is directed by Chetan Sharma, is under criticism as a result of India’s poor showing at the T20 World Cup.

On December 29, the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC), which is comprised of Ashok Malhotra, Jatin Paranjpe, and Sulakshna Naik, will meet to review the shortlist of candidates who have applied for the position of selectors. The previous selection committee has been instructed to participate in the Ranji Trophy matches through the third round.

Many people had questioned why Rahul’s management was still sticking with him despite his decline in performance since the Asia Cup. KL Rahul averaged 27.89 in his 251 runs in 10 ODIs in 2022.

His T20I statistics likewise show the same average value. In 16 T20 Internationals this year, he has scored 434 runs, averaging 28.93. In 2022, his test scores are at their lowest. In four Test matches this year, he scored 137 runs, averaging 17.13, with one score of 50.

KL Rahul’s return to T20I and Test cricket may not occur any sooner given his recent string of poor performances. With Rohit Sharma’s return and Shubman Gill’s steady performance in the Test format, Rahul may be dropped from the Australia squad.
