If he’s not fit now, there’s no guarantee he’ll be fit after two games. Mohammad Kaif on K.L. Rahul’s injury

Mumbai Indians batter Ishan Kishan has been included in the squad as a reserve keeper. However, he is not used to playing in the middle-order in ODIs. He knows how to switch gears, knows how to deliver big hits and stabilize the innings. Even if you play Ishan Kishan, you won’t have a replacement. Also, Rahul not only keeps the wicket but also gives it a finishing touch, Kaif said.

India have also included Sanju Samson in the squad as a replacement player as Rahul’s fitness has been a concern since the squad was announced. This was stated by Ajit Agarkar at a press conference.

Samson has also had a decent start to his ODI career with an average of 55.71 in 13 matches, scoring 390 runs and making some crucial knocks in this format in his short career.
