“What A Fraud” KL Rahul Is Getting Trolled Mercilessly

Not only KL Rahul, India’s stand-in captain for this Test in the absence of Rohit Sharma

India, on the other hand, have lost Test matches in South Africa and England

Shubman Gill wasn’t different either: 20 runs in 40 balls.

The India captain punched the bat in anger and frustration
