As Team India were bundled out for a shameful 36 against Australia in the second innings of the first Test, a lot of batsmen have come under scrutiny. With Virat Kohli not available for the next three Tests, that poses many more problems for the visitors. Now having gone through the disaster, Indians fans want KL Rahul back in the team Test playing XI, who had shown sublime form in white-ball cricket.
Here are some of the tweets -

Cant understand why KL Rahul, Dhawan, Iyer etc. not in the team. A batsman could have been in of great help if Vihari not bowling.Are we sendind our team to win matches or give players chance to play on quota system?@BCCI @SGanguly99 @RaviShastriOfc— Shriiram Deshpande (@ShriramDeshpa11) December 19, 2020
Earlier, India pacer Mohammed Shami got retired hurt against Australia in the first Test match in Adelaide. With he being retired hurt, India registered their lowest ever Test total of 36. One can take solace from the fact that India didn’t lose all their wickets and fans can still argue that India had one wicket intact. Shami’s problem began when he was hit on the elbow from Pat Cummins. Team physios rushed in to his aid but that proved insufficient and Shami opted to trudge back to pavilion. With this, India’s innings was considered over with the scoreboard reading 36/9. India were 9/1 when the Stumps were called on Day 2.
