Former India selector MSK Prasad said: it is wrong to even think of excluding Lokesh Rahul from the team.
The biggest challenge will be to choose your playing XI in front of the team management in the 5-match T20 series against the England cricket team.
The biggest challenge before the Indian team is to give either one of Lokesh Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan a place in the playing eleven.
Meanwhile, former chief selector of the Indian team, MSK Prasad, says that it would be quite wrong to think of excluding Lokesh Rahul from the Indian team and not being given a place in the playing eleven.
Looking at the way Lokesh Rahul has been performing well and brilliantly since the last season of IPL, the Indian team should not even think of draping him from the team.
The same MSK Prasad further said that I believe that Lokesh Rahul is the best batsman of 1 world cricket in T20.
At present, he is not only in his best form but also everywhere with his explosive batting. The way he bats with different types of gear in each of his fields.
Play a lot of different shots as well and it feels very good to see that. I would like to say about him that he has been a tremendous discovery for the Indian cricket team in the recent past.
It would not be perfect to drop him out of the Indian team or not to play in the playing eleven. If he stays fit then he cannot be excluded from the team.
MSK Prasad believes that India will do very well in this T20 series. India’s T20 team is much better in Test team.
As India plays cricket, so will its team become very good. India is currently the best team to play Test cricket, there is no doubt about it.
But the T20 team is much better than India. You have a dashing batsman like Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
The same Lokesh Rahul is the top order batsman in the world and I think AH is the best batsman in T20. After that you have players like Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant in the team.
You have a dangerous player like Hardik Pandya as an all-rounder. There is no break of this batting line up.
This team can have batsmen up to No.8 even to win the match. So it is going to be very difficult for any team to stop India.
