Sunil Gavaskar has backed KL Rahul to get a long run at the top of the batting order in T20Is.

KL Rahul had his first real test in a long time when he took batting guard against Pakistan in the Asia Cup 2022. However, he lasted just one ball as Naseem Shah was able to get better of him.

The vice-captain of the Indian team was dismissed on a golden duck while chasing 148 at the Dubai International Stadium.

He has returned to cricket after a long time and his first T20I outing ended in disappointment.

Fans criticized Rahul for the way he lost his wicket.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma won the toss and invited the Men in Green to bat first. Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4 wickets) and Hardik Pandya (3 wickets) didn’t allow the Pakistan batters to settle down as they were bowled out for 147.

Mohammad Rizwan (43 runs) and Iftikhar Ahmed (28 runs) contributed to the batting department for Pakistan.
