Since making a return from his injury last year, KL Rahul has failed to prove his worth in international cricket. The opener scored only one half-century throughout the T20 World Cup 2022 where India witnessed a humiliating loss by 10 wickets in the semi-final, and failed to surpass the 50-run mark during the Test series in Bangladesh. Rahul did produce important knocks in the Bangladesh ODIs as he played in the middle order, and retained his place in the format for the series against Sri Lanka.

Former Indian skipper, Mohammad Azharuddin talked in detail about the concerns of Rahul, stating that coaches need to work with the Indian star. Azhar also pointed out that Rahul is getting dismissed due to his own mistakes rather than the bowler’s genius.

As per the quotes in PTI, Mohammad Azharuddin said, “I think consistency is the problem in KL Rahul’s case. But I think there are coaches who should rectify his flaws. In my opinion, he is a good player but consistency is missing in his game.”

KL Rahul, who has been failing more often than not in his international comeback, was bowled around his legs for a sedate 39 in the opening ODI against Sri Lanka in Guwahati on Tuesday.

Talking about the same, Mohammad Azharuddin said, “I think Rahul is getting out in a lot of manners. Primarily, it is not the good balls that are getting him out. It is poor shot selection first up that is causing problems.”

KL Rahul had donned the wicketkeeping gloves in the first ODI of the series against Sri Lanka as well. Meanwhile, Azharuddin is president of the Hyderabad Cricket Association for more than a year now.

Elaborating the same, Mohammad Azharuddin said, “We are fighting to revive the lost reputation of the Hyderabad Cricket Association. We have had a lot of work done (in terms of renovation) in the Stadium arena as well as the dressing rooms. When I took charge, it was all in pathetic condition. We will be hosting our second international match in three months’ time (vs New Zealand). We are very happy that the BCCI has recognized our hard work and matches are being allotted to us.”
