Former chief selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth has targeted commentator Sanjay Manjrekar from the cricketer. Manjrekar questioned the inclusion of KL Rahul in the Indian team for the Australian tour. KL Rahul is in great form in the Indian Premier League 2020 (IPL 2020). He is the highest run-scorer so far this season. He has been selected in the Indian team for the Border-Gavaskar series in December-January.
Manjrekar said that it is a false tradition when a player is being selected in the Test team based on performance in the IPL. "It is very disappointing for Ranji Trophy players," he said. Srikanth Manjrekar was very upset with this. He said on his YouTube channel 'Chiki Chika', "It is Sanjay Manjrekar's job to release him if he asks a question."
Srikanth said, "Question on the inclusion of KL Rahul in Test cricket? He has done well in Test cricket. I can't believe anything because Sanjay Manjrekar has asked a question on this. I don't think I can agree with this. You should not raise a question just to create controversy. KL Rahul has performed brilliantly in every format. Take a look at his test record. "Rahul has played 36 Tests for India, scoring 2006 with the help of 5 centuries and 11 half-centuries." Sanjay Manjrekar is talking nonsense, "said Srikanth. I don't agree. He said," Rahul's There may be a lack of consistency in the performance, but it is Rahul who made his Test debut in Australia and scored a century. He is a good player against fast bowling. Understand that he plays very well against fast bowling. "
Let me tell you that KL Rahul is in great form in IPL at this time and this season he has scored the most runs so far.
