Ajay Jadeja is furious about skipper KL Rahul's poor decisions during the toss in the Zimbabwe series, which has left him devoid of enough match practice ahead of the Asia Cup.
Fortunately, Rahul found himself on the right side of the coin in all three matches of the series. However, the 30-year-old opted to bowl first in the first two fixtures, which gave him minimal chances of getting into rhythm and get enough runs under his belt.
He did not get a chance to bat in the first fixture, while the remaining two saw him scoring only 31 runs at a dismal average of 15.50.
Furthermore, this was the first competitive series for Rahul after the IPL 2022, due to his injuries and Covid-19 concerns.
The cricketer-turned commentator thinks it was critical for Rahul to get confidence before heading to the UAE for the Asia Cup.
