KL Rahul, 2022 Asia Cup: Team India’s caretaker captain KL Rahul won his last Super-4 match of the Asia Cup against Afghanistan. It was not easy for him to come back after surgery and play cricket. Rahul did not play international cricket for a long time due to injury. He returned to international cricket from the series against Zimbabwe before the Asia Cup.
‘It was not easy to come back after surgery and play cricket’
KL Rahul said, “I was not finding my rhythm easily. I am happy that I found that rhythm at the end of this tournament. Against Hong Kong I got a free hit and I hit a six, in that match I got another six Mara. After that I also took some shots in the match against Pakistan, which made me feel that I am getting into the rhythm.
He said, “This result is definitely disappointing for us. We wanted to play the final but the last two matches did not go well for us. This is the right time, when we see what went right and what went wrong for us? We want to win every single match. This tournament is a part of our learning.
