Someone will have to make personal sacrifice: Manjrekar on KL Rahul opening the innings against Zimbabwe

New Delhi, Aug 18 (PTI) India has plenty of options at the top of the order and someone has to "sacrifice" the opener's slot for KL Rahul, who performs his best when he takes the first strike, reckons former India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar.

Rahul made a comeback to the national team for the ODI series against Zimbabwe after recovering from a sports hernia surgery.

"Shikhar Dhawan will open. Shubman Gill and Ruturaj Gaikwad are the other guys who will be pushing KL Rahul and you know the team management has options. So, it will be about somebody making a personal sacrifice from KL Rahul's standpoint thinking from only his angle," Manjrekar told SPORTS18.
