Cricket: KL Rahul rises like a phoenix

Sent home from Australia after the chat show controversy at the beginning of the year, Rahul ends 2019 on a strong note. With Rahul, India also have a wicket-keeping option in the T20 format. He has kept wickets at the domestic level and does so with reasonable success at the IPL. “He is definitely an option,” said India coach Ravi Shastri.

  • India's fielding was lax and failed to build pressure on the Black Caps, an apt representation of their struggles in this series.

    At a time when bilateral ODI series are fast losing relevance, the three-match rubber between two top teams could give a fresh lease of life to the format. The high-voltage rivalries that fans enjoy will be back as Rohit Sharma's elegance will be pitted against enforcer David Warner while the Virat Kohli vs Steve Smith duel will resume in earnest.

    The last couple of seasons have been a roller-coaster ride for Rahul. He is undoubtedly a valuable asset to the team across formats, albeit this statement always comes with a rider. Performance, as in number of runs, matters most. In 2018, during the ODI series in England, Rahul scored 9 runs in two matches.

    Put into bat, India scored 387 for 5 in the second one-dayer against the West Indies here on Wednesday. Rohit gave India a flying start as he shared a 227-run partnership with KL Rahul for the opening wicket. Rohit made 159 of 138 balls while KL Rahul made 102 of 104 balls.

    2nd T20 KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer help India win by seven wickets after bowlers, led by Ravindra Jadeja, restrict New Zealand to 132/5

    India tightened their grip on the T20I series with a seven-wicket drubbing of New Zealand in the second match after their bowlers stifled the hosts on a pocket-sized Eden Park here on Sunday.

    Shikhar Dhawan, who will be leading Delhi in their Ranji Trophy game against Hyderabad, is back after recovering from a knee injury sustained during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, which required 25 stitches.

    Team India’s middle-order muddle is only well known, and perhaps reached a crescendo in 2019 when it became a key factor in their ODI World Cup semi-final exit. Nearly 12 different batsmen had been trialled at number four during the two-year experimentation phase before that tournament — all of it had come to nought with an inexperienced Rishabh Pant handed a job he couldn’t execute.

    With a spate of injuries forcing Shikhar Dhawan out of the team once again, don’t fault him to feel a little insecure. But, trust him to come back stronger once again.

    He achieved the feat against West Indies in the ongoing second ODI of the three-match series here at Vishakapatnam. Sharma went on to register his seventh century in this calendar year and as a result, he surpassed Virat Kohli to achieve the feat. The 32-year-old Sharma so far has 1382 runs in the ODI format in 2019 while Kohli has 1292 runs to his credit.

    ‘Best company’, the cricketer wrote in the caption.
