Salman Butt believes that KL Rahul was subjected to trolling because the selectors kept playing him despite his poor form.
Butt reckoned that the side should have backed Shubman Gill as he was in fantastic form.
“KL Rahul was criticized a lot during his rough patch. Indian selectors should be blamed for Rahul’s criticism. They kept on playing him despite his failures,” he said on his YouTube Channel;
“They exposed him by doing so. They should have played Shubman Gill, as he was in form. They could have saved Rahul from unnecessary criticism.”
Rahul scored a match-winning 75 not out in the first ODI against Australia in Mumbai.
