Bombla! The post of vice-captain has gone, now will the post of captain also go? ‘These’ 2 players can replace Rahul in IPL
KL Rahul, who is considered to be the explosive batsman of the Indian team, seems to be a complete flop from the last few matches. He has not scored a single big score in the last 9 Test innings. His best score during this period was just 23. Despite such a poor performance in the Delhi Test, captain Rohit Sharma gave him faith in the Delhi Test and made it clear that the team management was with him. However, when the squad for the remaining two Tests against Australia was announced later that evening, there was no change. However, no one held the vice-captain position of the team. Rahul had this responsibility in the first two Tests.
KL Rahul led India in Tests 2 months ago. However, now his career is in danger. First ODI and now Test vice-captain also went. The question arises that this decision taken by the BCCI may have an impact on the IPL 2023 (IPL 2023) tournament.
In fact, last year, Rahul captained Lucknow Super Giants, a newly-joined IPL team. Under the leadership of Rahul, the Lucknow team traveled to the qualifying round. Rahul had a valuable contribution in this. He scored 616 runs at an average of 51 in 15 matches in IPL 2022. He also scored two centuries in between.
Rahul’s test average has fallen in four years
After IPL 2022, KL Rahul’s performance graph is steadily declining. He played a total of 16 T20 matches after IPL 2022. He has scored 6 fifties in it. However, half of these have been against teams like Afghanistan, Bangladesh. Rahul averages 33 in Tests. However, since the beginning of 2018, this average has dropped to 26. During this period, Rahul scored more than 50 runs 6 times in 48 innings. So, from the numbers it seems that Rahul is struggling. Therefore, he was removed from the vice-captaincy of the ODI and Test teams.
IPL playoff match played by Lucknow under the leadership of Rahul
Talking about leading the Lucknow Super Giants team in IPL, Rahul has done well in one season. There are no signs that the Lucknow team management will change the captaincy for IPL 2023. However, given the way Rahul’s position in the Indian team has changed, it would not be a surprise if this change happens in Lucknow as well.
Quinton de Kock can handle the captaincy
There are two players in the Lucknow team who can lead in Rahul’s place. One of them is Quinton De Kock and the other is Marcus Stoinis. De Kock has led South Africa. Also, he has been a part of IPL for a long time. Also, Stoinis has also played over 200 T20 matches. He is counted among the great all-rounders. He has performed strongly in the Big Bash League. He also won the T20 Player of the Year award during the Australia Cricket Awards in 2023. So he can handle the captaincy.
The IPL 2023 will start from March 31 with a match between defending champions Gujarat Titans vs Chennai Super Kings. (cricketer kl rahul lost vice captaincy of team india in test odi may loose responsibility to quinton de cock ipl 2023 know here)
