Indore: KL Rahul is one of the most talented cricketers in the country, but recently his form has been questionable.
Following his failures in the second Test against Australia in Delhi, Rahul was removed as the vice-captain of the Indian Test side. Ahead of the third Test in Indore, Rahul visited the Mahakaleshwar Temple in Madhya Pradesh along with actress Athiya Shetty. Once their picture surfaced on social space, fans started reacting. Some fans felt he is taking the Virat Kohli route to get back to form. Kohli was recently seen visiting some temples in Rishikesh.
There are speculations that Rahul may not get to feature in the playing XI for the third Test and hence he has been removed as vice-captain. Multiple reports suggest that Shubman Gill stands a good chance of replacing Rahul in the third Test at Indore.
Meanwhile, with a win by six wickets in Delhi, India retained the BGT for the fourth consecutive time and also solidified their chance of making the final of the World Test Championship. The third Test starts from March 1 at the Holkar stadium in Indore.
