India completed the second Test victory over Australia in three days, but since the game has ended, more than the team’s accomplishments are being discussed. Opening batsman KL Rahul received a lot of criticism after being removed for yet another poor total (1 run), with several analysts and former cricketers calling for his dismissal. Rohit Sharma, the captain, has vowed to continue supporting the batsman.

At the press conference, Rohit spoke to the media and expressed his support for “gifted players” like KL Rahul, joking that the team’s management would give them a lengthy leash.

“Of late, there has been a lot of talk about his batting. For us, as team management, we always look at the potential of any individual, not just KL. I was asked in the past about a lot of players. If a guy has potential, he will get an extended run. Not just KL.

If you look at the couple of hundreds he got, especially at Lord’s, batting on that damp pitch. Centurion was another win. Both came in India winning both games. That’s the potential he has,” Rohit said in the press conference on Sunday.

We Want KL Rahul To Go Out And Play His Game: Rohit Sharma

Speaking about the conversation the team management had with Rahul, Rohit Sharma claimed that the batter was instructed to perform to the best of his ability. In order to emphasize Rahul’s talent, the India skipper also mentioned his performances in South Africa and England.

“Obviously, of late, there have been a lot of talks. But, from our side, it was clear that we want him to go out and play his game and do what he can do the best, that we have seen him do over the years.

“Of course, when you are playing on pitches like these, you need to find your method of scoring runs. As I said, different individuals are part of these teams and they will have different methods of scoring runs.

Find your own methods of doing this. We are not going to look into what one individual is doing, but rather what the entire team is doing. This is an important series for us, a big one, and that’s my thought on KL,” Rohit Sharma concluded.
