KL Rahul to don wicket-keeping gloves in the first ODI against Bangladesh
India is currently taking on Bangladesh in the first ODI of the three-match series in Dhaka. Ahead of the first game, India was jolted with the big blow as keeper batter Rishabh Pant was ruled out of the series.
With him being out of the series, India was left only with two choices for the keeper’s role in the XI in Ishan Kishan and KL Rahul. The southpaw being the top-order batter who wasn’t given preference as the top 4 in the team have cemented their place. Therefore Rahul was the only option left to do the keeping duties.
On the other hand, Sanju Samson, who was part of the New Zealand tour, was rested for the series and it’s fair to say that had he been there, he would’ve kept the wickets. The keeper batter hasn’t got the desired chances due to the team combination.
Samson didn’t get a chance in the T20I series against New Zealand. But was back in the team for the first ODI. He batted decently well and scored 36 runs but then was again benched for the second game and also missed the third game due to team combination.
