KL Rahul is another player who has constantly been making the headlines during the test match series of India vs Australia taking place in Australia.
In the previous match, he drew a lot of flak from the followers for having been bowled out after just 9 runs. In fact, people were comparing him to Pant and Pujara.
However in the last match, KL Rahul has won over our hearts by showing what honesty and true sportsmanship should be like.
During the match in Sydney, Rahul was planning to get Marcus Harris’s catch and had to dive full length. He got the catch apparently and Jadeja started celebrating.
But Rahul signalled to say that the catch was not clean. It was then that the umpire Ian Gould clapped his hands and gave a thumbs up to Rahul for his honesty.

Obviously pleased (& not surprised) to see Rahul do the right thing. However, the norm and expectation of players on catches should be honesty. Instead of heaping great praise on players for honesty, we should be severely condemning and calling out those who wrongly claim catches
