KL Rahul and Virat Kohli have not been in great form in recent months. As per a statistic, Mohammed Shami has had a better batting average than this duo in the last year. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted to the stat that Shami has a better batting average than KL Rahul and Virat Kohli in the last 12 months.
KL Rahul and Virat Kohli have not had a great last 12 months
KL Rahul has been under the scanner for a while now. He has been poor in Tests and the team is still backing him. This is despite Shubman Gill being in good form and being available on the bench. Rahul has looked out of confidence and is finding new ways to get out in every game. With this approach, it won’t be a surprise if he does not get a game for a long time.
On the other hand, Virat Kohli, too, is going through a similar run. However, in Virat’s case, he appears confident and some bad luck too goes against him. Nevertheless, as the No.4 batter of the squad, it is high time that the former India skipper steps up. It has been a while since he has got a century in whites. Fans would soon start counting these days, which would further add pressure on him.

On the other hand, Shami is someone who has been more than useful with the willow in recent years. For instance, in the England Tour in 2021, he literally pulled India out of the hole with his well-made fifty. Similarly, he has been making vital contributions. Importantly, he has been entertaining and whenever he is on the crease, some drama is always around the corner. Interestingly, his numbers are batter than KL and Virat in the last year and this triggered many reactions on social media:
