Indian cricketer KL Rahul has recently posted a chilling picture of him on his official social media accounts. While he is currently struggling to stay in the national team, the Indian fans trolled him for that chilling post.
KL Rahul is known as a very talented and hard-working batsman. The right-handed batsman performs well in limited-overs cricket but he is struggling to perform well in Test cricket for a long time.
In the last two seasons, he was performing very consistently in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Rahul finished among the top three run-scorers in the last two IPL seasons. But his performances in international cricket are totally different.

In Test cricket, KL Rahul is struggling to score runs. Since 2018, Rahul has scored only one century and one half-century in Test cricket. Moreover, in the last 12 months, the right-handed batsman hasn’t scored a 50 in Test cricket.
KL Rahul’s limited-overs performances are much better. He was in good touch in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as he scored 361 runs in nine innings with an average of 45.12. The right-handed batsman hit two centuries and one half-century in that tournament. Also, he is the no.7-ranked T20I batsman at present.
But his poor Test form is affecting his limited-overs performances too. He still needs to show his consistency in limited-overs cricket.
After missing out the Test squad, KL Rahul is ready to back in domestic cricket
Recently, the selectors have dropped him from the Test squad for the upcoming home Test series against South Africa. Though he was in the recently concluded T20I squad against South Africa, he wasn’t selected in the playing XIs in any matches of that series.
The 27-year-old KL Rahul has played 36 Tests, 23 ODIs and 28 T20Is where he has scored 2,006, 704 and 899 runs respectively. While Rahul is missing the upcoming home Test series against South Africa, he will play the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019/20. In the Vijay Hazare Trophy 2019/20, Rahul is ready to serve Karnataka.
Recently, Rahul posted a picture on his social media accounts where he was chilling in a cryogenic chamber. It is a therapy to relax the muscles. He faced brutal trolls for that post.
