Indian opener KL Rahul after bagging the man of the match award said in the post-match interview that he had to change his mindset from the 2018 tour which was the big difference. India stunned the English side by bowling them out under 60 overs on the final day and it was a complete effort from the Indian side.

Mohammad Siraj picked up 8 wickets in the Test and proved to be a game-changer for the side. The tailenders’ contribution was a big moment as Mohammad Shami and Jasprit Bumrah shared an 89 run partnership for the ninth wicket and brought India back into the Test.

KL Rahul Reveals The Main Takeaway From 2018 Tour Of England

KL Rahul who looked completely different from the previous tour in England stated that he has reduced the number of shots he has looked to play. He reckoned that his focus had shifted to enjoying batting and playing according to the responsibility. His mindset change was visible in the first innings century he hit and it was a big moment in the game.

“My main takeaway from the 2018 tour was that I was playing too many shots. My mindset was how I could score runs. But this time, I have decided to just enjoy my batting and focus on the responsibility given to me by the team. I am not paying much attention to personal plans. So that is the big difference,” KL Rahul told in the post-match interview.

KL Rahul Ready To Trust His Defence And Technique

KL Rahul mentioned that he was delighted to be at the crease for a longer time and his inning can be divided into half with one being very cautious and defensive while the second half was much positive. He added that he will look to stick with the same plan throughout the series as it has been very successful.

“I am happy to enjoy being the middle and when bowlers come up with good spells, I am ready to trust my defence and technique. I have got results in the last couple of weeks so the plan is to continue the same pattern,” he added.
