Senior batter KL Rahul’s form has been subjected to massive criticism as the 30-year-old has managed to score only 22 runs so far in the T20 World Cup. He showed glimpses of his form against Australia in the practice match but ever since, failed to help India give the start that they desperately needed. Thus, after losing to South Africa, his position in the starting XI is being questioned by many, especially with Rishabh Pant waiting in the wings.

Amidst all these, former India captain Virat Kohli was seen spending some time with KL Rahul and guiding him during India’s net session at the Adelaide. The duo spent a lot of time in the nets and was also spotted having a lengthy chat in the middle. Later batting coach Vikram Rathour and mental conditioning coach Paddy upton were also seen talking to KL Rahul.

Later in the day, the 33-year-old was also spotted giving some advice to KL Rahul on his batting stance and footwork. Meanwhile, team India had to train indoors after rain affected their practice session on Tuesday.

KL Rahul is a fantastic player, we are confident that he will come back strongly: Rahul Dravid

Even though Rahul has been criticised a lot in recent times, India's head coach Rahul Dravid has no doubt of his quality. The opener has played multiple match-winning knocks for the team in the past and thus the 49-year-old is confident that he will return back to form sooner.

“In words and actions, we have shown full support for KL Rahul. KL Rahul is a fantastic player, we are confident that he will come back strongly, these conditions has been challenging for the openers in this world. Me and Rohit don't have absolutely no doubt who will open, I know how much impact KL Rahul can make,” the coach said in the press conference before taing on Bangladesh in their fourth match of the Super 12.
