Team India vice-captain KL Rahul has been under fire for his poor form in 2022. 

Although the stand-in captain led India to a 2-0 series whitewash against Shakib al Hasan’s side, he was heavily trolled after posting a top-score of only 22 with the bat.

The India opener was once again trolled by fans after posting his pictures on social media platforms with girlfriend Athiya Shetty. 

Rahul is rumoured to tie the knot with Athiya later this month and has been rested for the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka which begins on Tuesday (January 3).

Rahul posted a series of pictures with Athiya and captioned them ‘2023’ with a ‘heart emoji’. 

One Twitter user wrote, “Brother, now you stay with your wife and don't come back to the Indian cricket team because you are no longer needed in #Teamindia . You are the burden in the team.” 

Another said, “Pls don't return until 4-5 yrs . This would be your best chance to serve Indian cricket.”
