KL Rahul‘s struggles on the cricket field have triggered a war on social media, with former India cricketers Venkatesh Prasad and Aakash Chopra going head to head over their perception of the player. While Prasad has been a staunch critic of Rahul, questioning his place in the Indian Test team amid repeated failures, Chopra went on to call Venkatesh an ‘agenda paddler’ over his criticism of the batter. Now, Harbhajan Singh has jumped into the debate calling the duo to leave Rahul alone.
Taking to Twitter, the former India off-spinner wrote: “Can we leave @klrahul, alone guys? He hasn’t done any crime. He is still a top player. He will come back strong. We all go through such patches in international cricket. He is not the first one or the last one. So please respect the fact that he is our own player and have faith.”

Prasad had written: “I have no agenda against any player, maybe there are others who have. Difference of opinion is fine but calling contrary views as apna personal agenda and Twitter par mat laayein is funny for @cricketaakash, considering he has made a great career by airing his views. I have nothing against KL or any other player, my voice has been against unfair selection and different yardsticks for performers. Be it Sarfaraz or Kuldeep, have voiced based on merit. But it was disappointing to see Aakash calling it personal agenda.”
