Mumbai: Time is now running away for both Murali Vijay and KL Rahul. The openers have completely failed to justify the faith shown in them by the team management. Before coming to Australia, Rahul had played seven overseas Tests this year and crossed fifty once. Rahul again failed in the second innings of the Perth Test when he scored a duck and looked completely out of sorts on the fastpitch against Starc.
BCCI will take strong action against the openers when they are back in India. BCCI spokesperson Mr. Sanil Jain told Faking News,” We have planned to show 3 Idiots movie to the Indian openers so that they realize their true passion, which definitely is not cricket. KL Rahul may be liking photography or painting, but cricket is definitely not his strong area. Maybe he took up cricket as a pressure from the family just like the 3 idiots movie. We will make sure that Vijay and KL Rahul realize their true potential and make way for youngsters like Mayank Agarwal and Prithvi Shaw.”
Ravi Shastri still believes that Rahul is the best Indian opener in the last 20 years and he will definitely come good if given 30-40 more chances. Kohli also said that Rahul is doing everything necessary, going to the GYm, getting tattoos done, so there is a concern why he is still not performing. But Kohli believes that it is just matter of time when the Karnataka batsman starts to find his feet again.
