KL Rahul's struggling run in the opening slot has left former India opener Wasim Jaffer baffled and he feels the Karnataka player seems caught in an unsolved jigsaw puzzle despite having the ability to do well.

Rahul's place in the team has been questioned due to his failure to own the opening slot despite being given a long rope by the team management. Rahul averages 36.82 in the opening slot. "I feel a little bit disappointed with KL Rahul because he has got so much ability, he is one of the guys [players] who has got 100 in all three formats [of the game]," said Jaffer during the inauguration of the Adams Wylie Physio Rehab Center instituted by the Indian Red Cross Society in Mumbai Central.

"And his mode of dismissals make me a bit disappointed because he gets out very softly at times. He has got a lot of ability and that is why he is getting so many chances, because people believe that he is going to come good.

"The way he gets out and the way he does not get that many runs, that surprises me...I feel somewhere he is missing those puzzles (sic) in his jigsaw," he said.
