Virat Kohli hints at continuing with KL Rahul in opening slot

St. Lucia: India skipper Virat Kohli today dropped hints that he would like to persist with KL Rahul, who seized the opportunity by scoring a hundred in the absence of injured Murali Vijay in the second Test against the West Indies.

Rahul scored 158 when he replaced Murli Vijay, who had to sit out due to a hand injury.

“The good thing is all three openers are playing well. The bad thing is that you can only choose two between three. That is a call we need to take as management.

We’ll sit down today and do that. Getting injured when playing well is not in your hand. That’s why they say injuries can really upset people and bring them down. The good thing is Vijay has been in a good headspace.

He’s back to the nets and back to fielding and we will take a call on that,” Kohli said on the eve of the third Test.
