Indian vice-captain KL Rahul had a forgettable comeback to the Indian T20I side as he bagged a first-ball duck against arch-rivals Pakistan. KL Rahul was playing his first T20I in 2022 and was clean bowled on his very first ball off debutant Naseem Shah in the opening over. Rahul hasn’t looked in the best of forms even during the ODI series against Zimbabwe last week.
