Amid KL Rahul Saga, Ex-BCCI Selector’s Epic ‘Rolls-Royce’ Remark
The ongoing saga between Indian cricketer KL Rahul and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has taken a new twist with former selector Vikram Rathour’s epic ‘Rolls-Royce’ remark.
KL Rahul has been in the news lately for his involvement in a controversial chat with cricketer Hardik Pandya. The duo had made some inappropriate comments on a TV show, which caused an uproar in the cricketing fraternity. The BCCI had taken action against the two players and had suspended them from the team.
However, the BCCI’s decision to suspend the two players has been met with criticism from many quarters. Former selector Vikram Rathour has now added fuel to the fire with his ‘Rolls-Royce’ remark.
Rathour, in an interview, said that the BCCI’s decision to suspend Rahul was akin to “driving a Rolls-Royce into a pothole”. He suggested that the BCCI should have handled the situation differently and not taken such a harsh step.
The remark has caused a stir among cricket fans, with many questioning the former selector’s comments. Some have even accused him of being biased towards Rahul.
Meanwhile, the BCCI has maintained its stance on the matter and has not commented on Rathour’s remarks. The board is yet to take a decision on Rahul’s future with the Indian team.
The saga between KL Rahul and the BCCI has taken a new twist with Rathour’s ‘Rolls-Royce’ remark. It remains to be seen how the BCCI responds to the former selector’s comments and how it decides to move forward with the Indian cricketer’s future.
