KL Rahul had a defining sequence – with the bat, with the wicket-preserving gloves and then as a pacesetter. He captained India within the remaining T20I when Rohit Sharma was unfit to take the sector and checked out ease juggling between his choices. However, the batsman will not be content material and needs to face challenges as they arrive alongside. “It was a special feeling, leading your country is always the second dream – the first one’s of course to play for your country,” mentioned Rahul, swelling with uncontainable pleasure. “It was unfortunate what happened to Rohit. Every day I wake up, every day I’m thrown a new responsibility. I’m very grateful and I’m loving the challenges being thrown at me. It was great to see how we responded without our main leaders – Rohit and Virat.”
India have been very consistent throughout all of the three codecs within the current previous and as per Rahul, this needed to do with the best way Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been in and across the dressing room. “When there are players like Virat and Rohit in the dressing room, you don’t need to look too far for inspiration. Jasprit, too, is an inspiration to the guys in the dressing room due to his consistency and his performances.”
For Rahul, the facet is a intently-knit unit and the ambiance is extraordinarily cordial and it’s an extension of the household.
“We’re a young team, love spending time with each other, and there is absolutely no divide between the seniors and the juniors. We all have a common goal – to win games of cricket. We are all focused on winning the (T20) World Cup – that’s a common goal, and we’re trying to maximise our preparations for the World Cup.”
After their historic triumph within the T20I sequence, the India facet will play three ODIs from the fifth to the 11th of February, the primary of them in Hamilton, earlier than shifting on to the two-Test sequence, beginning on February 21.
