Mahi bhai obviously brings a lot of experience with him and he has given the Indian team a lot. So when a player like that is not playing, of course, you miss him. Both (Rahul and Pant) are keeping well so it has not made too much of a difference, but yes, you do miss his presence.”

KL Rahul takes the spotlight

On the other hand, Kuldeep Yadav applauds KL Rahul by saying that both his keeping and batting abilities benefit the team. However, the days that he doesn’t perform, it is important to have his back instead of putting him down.
