Tendulkar on KL Rahul’s recent performance: Such is life
The potential opening combinations have been one of the most talked-about subjects leading up to the first Test. Given his previous performance, older players have endorsed Shubman Gill, 23, to open the batting alongside skipper Rohit Sharma.
When discussing the starting lineups, Tendulkar said, “I don’t want to discuss team lineups and such. In contrast, Shubman Gill has been in excellent form recently, while Rahul hasn’t been able to chip in, but that’s life. You experience these highs and lows. They are both top-notch athletes, and in order to be on the squad, one must keep scoring runs.”
