New Delhi. Teams from all over the world, including the Indian team, are busy preparing for the T20 World Cup to be held later this year. In such a situation, the Indian team management is also doing many experiments on its players. This is the reason why Shikhar Dhawan was handed over the command of India’s youth team in the West Indies series. Even after this, he was made the captain for the Zimbabwe series, but suddenly the team took the decision and surprised all the cricket fans by replacing Shikhar as the captain. With this change, the team selectors also made their intentions clear. KL Rahul is currently the second choice after Rohit Sharma for team management. The three-match ODI series between India and Zimbabwe is going to start from 18th August. Many senior players are not part of the team in this series. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant have been rested for this series. In such a situation, KL Rahul will have to enter the field with the intention of defeating the Indian youth team as well as the hosts Zimbabwe.
Such is the record of KL Rahul in captaincy
For the tour of Zimbabwe from Shikhar Dhawan, the team management has snatched the captaincy and made KL Rahul as the new captain. But it is not that Shikhar Dhawan’s captaincy record is bad. You will be surprised to know that KL Rahul has a much worse record as a captain than Shikhar Dhawan. KL Rahul has captained in only four international matches so far. Out of these four matches, one Test match and three ODI matches are included. Rahul has done his ODI captaincy against South Africa and in all these three matches, the Indian team has to face defeat under the command of KL Rahul. Apart from this, if we talk about KL Rahul as captain in Test, then India had to face defeat in this match too. Accordingly, India has not won a single match while being the captain of KL Rahul.
