The third Test match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023 between India and Australia will be played from Wednesday (March 1). Indian team’s opener KL Rahul has become a topic of discussion ahead of the Test to be played in Indore. Indian cricket fans are wondering if Rahul, who is going through a bad form, will get a place in the final eleven or not? Because Rahul has been removed from the post of vice-captain in the last two Test matches. Meanwhile, captain Rohit Sharma has told the reason behind removing Rahul from the post of vice-captain.
What did Rohit say?
KL Rahul was the vice-captain of the team in the first two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series. However, he could not perform well. The selectors then retained him in the team, but stripped him of the vice-captaincy. Now Rohit Sharma has left silence on this. He said, “There is no sense in removing KL Rahul from the post of vice-captain. This should not be given too much importance.”
It is clear from Rohit Sharma’s statement that KL Rahul has the full support of captain and team management in bad times. However, there is still a question about Rahul’s place in the final eleven in the third Test. Coach Rahul Dravid has spent a lot of time with Shubman Gill during the practice session. It is said that Shubman, who is in superb form, could be replaced by Rahul in the third Test.

On the other hand, the team has not got a new vice-captain after Rahul. BCCI did not make anyone vice-captain while announcing the team. The BCCI had clarified that the captain Rohit Sharma will have the right to choose the vice-captain. Cheteshwar Pujara, R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja are said to be contenders for the vice-captaincy post. In the third Test, one of these three may get the vice-captaincy.
