Indian Skipper Rohit Sharma is keeping alive the hope of KL Rahul playing in the third Test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy as the debate of Shubhman Gill vs KL Rahul got heated up on social media.
In a recent interview, the Indian captain said that the management will continue to back the potential players in the team. Talking about Rahul he mentioned that removal as vice-captain doesn’t mean he is out of the squad.
“I spoke about it after the last game as well. Players who are going through a tough time, given their potential they will be given enough time to prove themselves”
“Being vice-captain or otherwise doesn’t tell you anything. At that point in time he was the vice-captain. His removal as vice-captain doesn’t indicate anything.”

Rahul has scored the highest individual score of 23 in the last 10 Test innings whereas Shubhman Gill is yet to play in the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy, he would want to continue his unblemished form of white ball cricket.
