WATCH | Don't Want to Lose Out on a Talent like KL Rahul: Kumble

Cricketnext Staff | January 9, 2019, 1:50 PM IST

GK: One other player I want you to really touch upon is KL Rahul. Because he seemed to have entered in some sort of funk? I know you asked him to be left out of the Melbourne Test match. He was then brought back because of combination issues. Didn't look right in the first innings he played as well what's your assessment?

AK: He needs time in the middle. Every batsman has been through this you know this phase where he is really not scoring the runs or struggling to score the runs but really looking good in the nets. I think people have been through that. It is just that KL Rahul has been inconsistent. And he gets a brilliant hundred and then in the next series he struggles and then he gets a brilliant hundred and then again, he struggles. So, the inconsistency is something that is bothering me and I am sure bothering the team and everybody else who knows what KL Rahul's potential is. I mean we have seen that you know right throughout his career, what he can do when he is on song be it whatever format whether it is Test or ODI or even T20s. So, I am keen that he comes back and plays the longer format for a little while gets his form back in and then go out there and play. Because Prithvi Shaw will be back, Mayank has done exceptionally well in the two chances he got. So, KL Rahul will have to perform and get runs for the good of Indian cricket. Because he is an exceptional talent. And you don't want to lose out on a talent like KL Rahul because of non-performance in one series.
