Viewers immediately connected the two pieces of the complex puzzle and understood why Chopra was defending Rahul despite the difficulties of the first match in the game’s longest format.
Aakash Chopra called Venkatesh Prasad for a one-on-one chat on his YouTube channel:
Aakash Chopra invited Venkatesh Prasad for a one-on-one chat on his YouTube channel, which the latter kindly declined, stating that he had stated his point of view and there was nothing more to say.
The dispute, which was started by Rahul’s appearance, took a completely different turn. In conclusion, the team management including skipper Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid will make the final decision on Rahul’s future, at least for the time being. Despite his 16.5 average over the last 12 Test innings, both Rohit and Dravid can back Rahul, but selectors have warned he could be left out after losing the vice-captaincy.
As for Rahul, he has been retained by the squad for the third and fourth tests against Australia, while he was ousted from the vice-captain role due to a run of poor performances.
India lead the four-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2-0, but Rahul’s place in the XI is under scrutiny as the opener has not scored more than 30 runs in his last nine innings. The fact that someone like Shubman Gull is waiting in the wings makes his case that much weaker.
