At the same time, there is a big discussion about KL Rahul. At the moment KL Rahul is not in much form. However, he has been retained in the ODI team.

In recent times, KL Rahul has shown some confidence while batting in the middle order. Suryakumar Yadav can also be given a chance to bat in the middle order. Suryakumar Yadav has proved to be brilliant in T20 matches so far. But somewhere in ODIs and Tests, that performance has not been seen so far.
