Watch: KL Rahul begins training for the upcoming home ODI series against Sri Lanka

KL Rahul, the Indian opener, did not have a memorable 2022. Rahul has been inconsistent ever since the Asia Cup 2022 when he missed nearly half of the year’s action.

Although he did score a few half-centuries, he was criticized by fans and some cricketers for not attacking with intent and not firing during his team’s most crucial matches.

Rahul practiced in the nets ahead of India’s upcoming ODI series against Sri Lanka at home. The batter posted pictures of his nets practice to Instagram. “Rahul wrote in the caption of his post, “right here #KLog.”

Last year, KL played in four Test matches and scored 137 runs, an average of 17.12, including one fifty. In tests, his score of 50 is the highest.

He scored 251 runs at an average of 27.88 in 10 ODIs last year, including two half-centuries and the highest score of 73.

He scored 434 runs at an average of 28.93 in 16 T20Is in 2022, including six half-centuries and a best score of 62.

KL scored 822 runs at an average of 25.68 in 30 matches last year, including nine half-centuries.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Rahul, who can also keep wickets, bats in the middle order at number five, given that Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, and captain Rohit Sharma are all in the team as possible opening options.

Notably, Rahul’s record at number five is outstanding. He has scored 548 runs at an average of 49.81 in 13 ODIs in this position. In this position, he has one century and five half-centuries to his name, and his highest individual score is 112.

Assam’s Guwahati will host the first one-day international on January 10. The second One-Day International will take place on January 12 at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens. Thiruvananthapuram will host the final One-Day International.

The three-match T20I series between India and Sri Lanka currently stands at 1-1, with the final match scheduled for Saturday in Rajkot, Gujarat.

India’s squad for the ODI series with Sri Lanka: Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya (VC), Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohd.
