After consistently poor form, KL Rahul finally contributed to the team by playing a great innings. Rahul got half a century with the bat in the T20 World Cup game against Bangladesh in Adelaide. Earlier, a video of Rahul’s conversation with Virat Kohli in practice surfaced. Rahul leaked the conversation during this time.
Rahul said we were really talking about how Australian conditions have been a bit different this time. We have been here before and played test cricket and expected the wickets to play a certain way and that has not happened so far. It was more difficult than our last tour. We were just talking about that.
Rahul also said that we are discussing the mindset of what we can do on the pitch. I was looking to see if I could use something he said, and if we could help each other. As players, we talk like that. He has done well in recent matches and I was trying to find out his state of mind.
It should be noted that in the game against Bangladesh, KL Rahul put in a flamboyant batting performance and scored half a century on 31 balls. He came out after scoring 50 points, but his shots got good timing. Apart from him, Virat Kohli also played a brilliant undefeated 64 while reaching his fiftieth birthday.
In a close match, the Indian team beat Bangladesh by 5 points under the Duckworth-Lewis rule. Thus, Team India is now leading Group 2 with 6 points.
