However, Srikkanth, the former chairman of the selectors, has dismissed Manjrekar’s claims as “rubbish” and said the batsman “played well in tests”.
“It’s Sanjay Manjrekar’s job to question things, so leave him alone,” Srikkanth said on his YouTube channel Cheeky Cheeka. “Questioning the selection of KL Rahul in tests? He played well in tests. I will not agree at all. Just because Sanjay wants to question something I don’t think I’m okay with. You shouldn’t question something just to create controversy. KL Rahul did excellently in all formats. Go through his test record. ”

However, it is difficult not to disagree with Manjrekar. Rahul’s performance has been in tests under the scanner since India’s England tour in mid-2018. After 299 runs in the five-test series against England, Rahul managed 37 runs in two Tests against the West Indies at home in 2018, 57 runs in three Tests in Australia and 101 runs in two Tests in the Caribbean. Rahul’s last test for India was in August 2019 before he left the testing team for New Zealand earlier this year.

However, Srikkanth has his views. “What Sanjay Manjrekar says is all rubbish. I will not agree, ”he said. “Rahul may have been inconsistent, but the same KL Rahul debuted in Australia and made a century. He is a good player at fast bowling. Let’s understand he’s a very good fast bowling player. ”
Srikkanth said Manjrekar should think of cricketers who come from other parts of the country and not just focus on players from Mumbai.
“Sanjay Manjrekar cannot think beyond Bombay. That’s the problem. We speak neutrally. Manjrekar cannot think beyond Bombay. For people like Manjrekar, everything is Bombay, Bombay and Bombay. You have to think beyond Bombay, ”said Srikkanth.
