Former India cricketer Venkatesh Prasad created quite a stir with his viral tweet on KL Rahul, accusing BCCI selectors and the Indian team management of “favouritism” towards the batter. Prasad tweeted that Rahul, who has been “consistently inconsistent”, has been selected based on “favouritism” amid the presence of talented and in-form players like Gill and Sarfaraz Khan. Reacting to the tweets, Gavaskar felt that Rahul should be given one more chance and a call can be taken by the management after the match with Gill ready to replace him. Former India all-rounder Madan Lal also sided with Gavaskar, reminding batting Vikram Rathour’s backing of Rahul in a recent press conference.
