Indian Vice-Captain KL Rahul Press Conference: Overview
In Pre-Match Press Conference, Indian vice-captain KL Rahul said that the hosts are not going into the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia with a specific attack mindset. As a result, they will devise a game plan based on the game situation.
Starting the new year on a high men in blue have beaten Sri Lanka and New Zealand in White-Ball Format. Among the highlights of their performance was their positive approach.
The Indian team has been a bit nervous in red-ball matches over the last year. Their previous Test assignment in Bangladesh took place in December 2022. They won both matches, although the results were not convincing.
When Nagpur Tests Starts:
A four-match series between the Men in blue and Kangaroos begins in Nagpur on Thursday, February 9. He was also asked if the team would bring their aggressive mindset to the Test matches.He Replied:
“We don’t really plan and think like this is a Test game or a one-day game and this is how you are supposed to play. You obviously have individual plans on how to tackle every bowler. We all try and assess the situation.
“If the situation demands for us to play a few shorts, then that is what we’ll have to do. If the situation demands us to play regular Test cricket, you just play on the merits of the ball. Just adjust and adapt according to the situation.”
What To Expect From Pitch:
Since Indian Management knows what the opponents will offer, Indian Vice-Captain says India’s preparation for the series has focused on playing spin. He stated:
“The (one) thing that we have obviously worked on is playing spin. We know how the pitches are going to be here in India and what to expect. Keeping that in mind, we have practiced playing spin.”
“Each person has their own individual plans – everybody wants to play a certain way, which has been discussed with the coaches. As a batting group, we have discussed that and tried to get used to spinning conditions.”
The Pitch Is Always The Talk Of The Town Whenever Any Team Tour India. It Is Expected That Rank Turners Will Be Prepared Keeping In Mind The WTC final position At Stake. India Wouldn’t Want To Give Up The Opportunity to play the Final Once Again.
Rahul On Left-Handers In Aussies Line-up:
“It is a very unique thing. I don’t think any other team has that many left-handers. It will be a challenge for the bowlers, but also might help them settle into a rhythm. I am sure Ash (Ashwin) and Siraj and the spinners will all be excited about the challenge.”
