BAN Vs IND: KL Rahul Faces Social Media Ire After Another Flop Show In 2nd Test Vs Bangladesh
KL Rahul scored 22, 23, 10 and 2 in the four innings against Bangladesh in the Test series.
Dhaka: KL Rahul continued his disappointing run in Tests after the stand-in-skipper was out for just two in India’s chase of 145 in the second innings on Day 3 of the ongoing second Test against Bangladesh on Saturday in Mirpur.
Leading 1-0 in the two match series, Bangladesh gifted India a perfect platform to win the second Test as well after they were all out for 231 in the second innings. Rahul, who had a terrible last three Test innings in Bangladesh, once again faltered on Saturday.

End of a dreadful year with the bat for KL Rahul. 57 runs in 4 innings in the Test series, overall 157 runs in 7 innings on this entire tour of Bangladesh.
