Former Indian cricket team captain Krishnamachari Srikkanth had an interesting perspective when it came to KL Rahul’s ouster from the third Test match between India and Australia. The former opener believes that the Indore pitch was difficult for the batsmen and one more failure would have damaged Rahul’s career. Rahul did not cross the 20-run mark even once in the first two matches and Srikkanth said it was a blessing in disguise that he did not have to play on that surface. Shubman Gill, who replaced Rahul, also failed to score in both innings of the encounter as India lost by nine wickets.

“First and foremost, I am happy for KL Rahul. Thankfully, it is good that he did not play. Had he played on these wickets and failed to get going in the next two Tests, and his career could have been over. .. Thank god he didn’t play. Frankly,” he said on his YouTube channel Cheeki Cheeka.

Srikkanth also weighed in on the controversy surrounding the pitches being used in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and said that it would be difficult for any batsman to score runs freely.

“On these pitches, it is very difficult to bat. Whoever it is, it is difficult to bat. Whoever it is, Virat Kohli, nobody can score runs on these pitches. If you look at it, Kuhnman, the bowling in the first innings Ripped the ball square off, ”he explained on the channel.

He said, “Taking wickets on these wickets is not a big deal. Even if I had bowled, I would have taken wickets. These are all difficult things, we have to accept them.”
