“After Making A Useless Video…”: Venkatesh Prasad Slams Former India Opener For Saying “Agenda Peddle” Against KL Rahul




The KL Rahul issue and his place in India’s playing XI despite poor scores is now becoming a moot point. Former India fast bowler Venkatesh Prasad has been very vocal on social media about Rahul getting a longer rope. Former India opener Aakash Chopra meanwhile did a YouTube video on KL Rahul. At the end of the video, Chopra urges Prasad to keep calm and not peddle an ‘agenda’ if there are any or highlight figures in line with his views.

“I am not saying that KL Rahul will become like Rohit Sharma, but I humbly request you to keep calm. If there is an agenda, don’t pedal them. Let’s talk about the numbers which actually and not those that conform to your ideas.” Akash insisted.

The comment didn’t go down well with Prasad and he took to social media to lash out at the former India opener. “So my friend Aakash Chopra this morning after making a poor video on YouTube where he calls me an agenda peddle, subtly and cleverly misquotes me, removes Mayank’s average of 70 at home , Wants to stop views that are not in line with what he believes but wanted to get Rohit out,” Prasad wrote in a series of tweets.

“I don’t have any agenda against any player, may be there are other people who have. Difference of opinion is fine but calling for opposite views don’t bring your personal agenda to twitter funny to
@cricketaakash, given that he has made an illustrious career out of giving vent to his ideas. I have nothing against KL or any other player, my voice is against unfair selection and different criteria for performers. Be it Sarfaraz or Kuldeep, voice has been given on the basis of merit. But it was disappointing to see Akash calling it a personal agenda.

“This is what Akash aired when Rohit was 24 and had 4 years in international cross. He can use sarcasm for Rohit at 24, and I am 31 with 8 years in international cricket Can’t point to Rahul’s performance. this is also correct,

“And the argument that we shouldn’t criticize a player personally in an ongoing match doesn’t make sense to me. It doesn’t affect the performance of the players. Most of the players don’t even read post match thoughts And no player can read the match.” The phones keep piling up between matches,” Prasad said.

“I admire Akash for the hard work he puts in on his YouTube channel, but calling out a different point of view as an agenda is not in line with his narrative. There is no bitterness between us and since His video was in the public domain, so I wanted to put forth my point.” point here. Best wishes.”

Rahul has retained his place in the Indian team for the third and fourth Tests against Australia. However, it remains to be seen whether the off-colour opener gets a chance in the XI.
