KL Rahul Visits Mahakaleshwar Temple With Wife Athiya Shetty Ahead of Indore Test. Watch

It hasn’t been a good few months for KL Rahul who fought for form. In the first two Test matches against Australia, the right-hander failed to score many points and since then several former cricketers and pundits have requested Shubman carries to replace him as the captain’s opening partner Rohit Sharma. In the three rounds that Rahul has played so far, he has not once surpassed the 25-point mark. On Sunday he visited the famous Mahakaleshwar Temple of Ujjain with his wife Athiya Shetty. In a video that has been circulating on social media, the two of them can be seen praying in the temple along with other devotees in the rather famous temple in India.

former Indian coach Ravi Shastri suggested that Shubman Gill should replace KL Rahul in the remaining two matches of the Border Gavaskar Trophy against Australia. There has been a lot of talk around the long thin period of India vice-captain Rahul.

With youngster Gill waiting on the wing despite his excellent form in every form, the pressure is mounting on Rahul. “The team management knows his (Rahul) form, they know his mental state. They know how they should be watching someone like Gill,” Shastri said on the ICC Review podcast.

“I’ve always had a belief[of]never appointing a vice-captain for India. I would rather pick the best squad, and if the captain has to leave the pitch, you focus on a player who can take over. time, simply because you don’t have to create complications.” Rahul, who was the designated vice-captain for the first two Tests of the Border Gavaskar Trophy, has kept his spot for the last two but is no longer the vice-captain of Rohit Sharma.

“If the co-pilot doesn’t do well, someone will take his place, at least not with the card. I’m blunt and blunt, I never liked the co-pilot at home. It’s different abroad.

“Here, you want to be in top form, you want someone like Gill who’s hot-tempered. He’s going to challenge. He’s got to knock that door down and in the side. Now, he’s not. As the vice-captain, it’s up to the team’s manager to decide,” Shastri said.
