India batsman KL Rahul has been facing criticism from all around in recent times because of his struggles with the bat especially in Tests. While the right-handed batsman is highly regarded by the team-management, he has not quite managed to cement his spot in the team. He recently lost his place in the Test side after the terrible outings against West Indies.
