“Is He Going To Be In Good Form When He Comes Back, Lots Of Questions Present Themselves” – Scott Styris On KL Rahul’s Prolonged Absence


Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris feels that KL Rahul’s place in the white-ball team is being threatened by the good performances of players like Suryakumar Yadav and Deepak Hooda.

Suryakumar has been opening the innings in the ongoing T20I series against the West Indies and has been mighty impressive. When Rahul becomes fit and available, it will be interesting to see how the management fits him into the team.

It’s a different mindset for players because they don’t want to be out and they don’t want to be giving other players opportunities. I know India has a very good culture within its group, so it doesn’t mind allowing other players opportunities all the time.

I know as a player myself, you never wanted to give somebody else a chance to take your spot,” said Styris on ‘Sports Over The Top’ show on Sports18.

“He has missed a lot of cricket” – Scott Styris

Rahul has been tremendously unlucky in recent times. He sustained a right groin injury after the IPL 2022 season and underwent surgery in Germany. After returning to match fitness on the eve of the series against West Indies, he contracted covid-19, ruling him out of the tour.

So with the fact that he’s out injured and he’s away from the team at the moment, it just means that other players are able to do what Suryakumar is doing, what Rishabh Pant is doing, getting in there, taking the chance scoring runs and really posing the selectors some questions saying, do we actually need KL Rahul?

Is he going to be in good form when he comes back? He has missed a lot of cricket, a lot of question marks now present themselves just because he’s been able to give other players that opportunity,” Styris added.
