IND vs BAN ODI LIVE: With several talented batters knocking on the door, the upcoming ODI fixture against Bangladesh can be a make-or-break series for KL Rahul.

With Sanju Samson, Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan all showing promise, Indian vice-captain needs to fire to keep his World Cup 2023 hopes alive. Things could change when the new selection committee comes in. Follow India vs Bangladesh LIVE updates on InsideSport.IN

KL Rahul is not having a good time in the 50-over format this year

The right-handed batsman has played 6 ODIs this year. In which, he has managed to score just 156 runs at an average of 26.0. Rahul has only one half-century. Looking at Rahul’s numbers in ODI cricket this year, the senior batter needs to have a good outing in Bangladesh. Else, he might be shown the exit doors before the 2023 World Cup.

Where does KL Rahul fit in India’s ODI team?

  • KL Rahul has played in both opening and middle-order positions for India in ODIs.
  • There might be a debate that Rahul should open with Rohit. However, Shikhar Dhawan might have an edge over Rahul considering his seniority and better numbers than Rahul.
  • One more thing that works in Dhawan’s favour is that he is a left-handed batter. As a result, the team management might be tempted to go with the left-right opening combination.
  • If not Dhawan, then another left-handed batter Ishan Kishan is in the line to take the opening spot.
  • Rahul might find it harder to get his place in the middle order too.
  • The Number 3 and 4 position are surely booked for Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav.
  • Indian management needs to choose between Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul and Sanju Samson for No 5 & 6 spots.
  • Considering Iyer’s good form during the NewZealand tour, it will be interesting to see where Rahul fits in.
