India vs Australia: KL Rahul says India A coach Rahul Dravid helped him a lot during matches against England Lions.
India on other side have lost two match T20I series after Australia defeated India by chasing down the target of 191 in last over with more two balls in hand with Glenn Maxwell brilliant unbeaten century. He scored 113 off 55 deliveries.
In post match press conference KL Rahul says “It has humbled me a little bit. I obviously respect the opportunity I have got to play for the country. It is the dream of every kid and I am no different. Just to value where I am and keep making the opportunities count, put my head down and keep working on my cricket,”On being asked about recent incidents
Rahul gave credit and praised Maxwell for his match wining knock
“In the second innings, dew always has an effect. We have seen that in Chinnaswamy. But can’t take (away) credit from Maxwell. He played a very good innings. Our bowlers tried their best but with a wet ball, it was always hard,” he said. “We all know what a strong player Maxwell is. He can play all around the park and it was a special knock from him. If he carries on the same way into the ODIs, we will have to figure a way to get him out.”
“Fortunately I got to play some India A game and some games where the pressure is a little less so that I can focus on my skill and my technique. I spent a lot of time with Rahul Dravid, working on my game and chatting about cricket. He helped me a lot in the games I played for India A,” the 26-year-old said.
“Just happy that I tasted a bit of success in the last two games and my batting has come out pretty well. But the other side is that I could have carried on in both innings, got a big score and won the game for my team.”
