Currently, Team India is busy in the Asia Cup. The ODI World Cup tournament will begin in India next month. Team India was announced for that two days ago. KL Rahul has been included in the World Cup team. KL Rahul got injured. This increased the concern of Team India. Now he is fit to play again. KL Rahul being fit is a good thing for Team India. But this has increased the headache of captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid. The first match against Pakistan was abandoned due to rain. But in this match, wicketkeeper Ishan Kishan came at number 5 and batted tremendously, so how to fit KL Rahul in the playing XI for the match against Pakistan in the Super 4 round of the Asia Cup? This is the biggest question before the team management.

The match will be played between Team India and Pakistan on 10 September. A strong performance against Pakistan has made Ishan Kishan an important member of the team. The 25-year-old Ishaan scored 82 off 81 balls in the first match of the Asia Cup against Pakistan. Ishan saved the team's innings on the score of 4 wickets for 66 runs. He has scored 4 fifties in the last 4 ODIs. KL Rahul is going to return to Team India after a long gap. That's why the team management can give the responsibility of wicketkeeping to Ishan Kishan. Shreyas Iyer will also return to Team India after a long gap. He also got injured. Now Shreyas can be dropped from the playing eleven in place of KL Rahul.

What is Sunil Gavaskar's opinion?

Former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar also gave his opinion on who should be given a place in the playing eleven between KL Rahul vs Shreyas Iyer. Speaking on India Today, Gavaskar said, Team India will have to choose between KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. He said- “Rahul and Shreyas will be contenders for a place in the playing eleven in the Super 4 of the Asia Cup. Ishaan has shown a brilliant game against Pakistan. If both Rahul and Ishan are included in the playing eleven, then Ishan should be given the responsibility of wicketkeeping. Because Rahul is back from injury. He may have trouble keeping wickets.”
