India may be trailing Australia 0-1 in the Test series but their players are not willing to take any unwarranted criticism from fans, certainly not KL Rahul. After the huge loss in Pune, the India team has been taking some time off cricket with a planned trek in the Western Ghats, pictures of which were widely shared across social media.

On Tuesday, a day after pictures of the trek were posted, KL Rahul gushed about Ravichandran Ashwin following him on Twitter. Given Ashwin’s current status as the top bowler in the world, Rahul was clearly floored.
