Why KL Rahul is important to India’s plans?

  • KL Rahul is the vice-captain of the Indian team and has done very well as an opener.
  • In England, he partnered with Rohit Sharma to make a great opening pair.
  • However, it’s in the white-ball formats, where his absence will be felt.
  • Rahul has been in great form in T20s and with India beginning preparations for the T20 World Cup, his availability in the England series was crucial.
  • Now that he has missed England tour, the West Indies tour and the Asia Cup will the two last opportunities for Rahul Dravid to get the combination rights.
  • There is still a question mark on where should Rahul bat in T20s.
  • Although he has done well as an opener, there is still debate on whether he should bat at No 4 and let Virat Kohli open with Rohit Sharma.

However, with KL Rahul missing his seventh series in last seven months, it is time that he recovers completely before jumping into pool of more matches to come.
