KL talks to the media

KL Rahul said that the team and Virat haven’t played a lot of test matches this year.

“We haven’t really played too much Test cricket for you to pass that statement. He’s been in good form; he’s done really well for us in T20 cricket. Recently, he got that hundred against Bangladesh here. Obviously, he will take some confidence into the Test matches as well,”

Rahul said in the press conference.

Rahul also said that his mindset and attitude of Kohli have stayed the same even during the tough time. 

“He’s been around for so long. He is such an experienced player; he knows what to do. His mindset and attitude have always remained the same. The passion he has for the game, and the commitment he gives to the team, have been on the show for everyone to see. He’s a great player. He has always found ways to get runs and I am sure he will do that again,”

he added.

Rahul also talked about Rohit Sharma missing the test match and how big a blow that is to the Indian side. 

“Obviously, Rohit Sharma is a very important player for us. He’s very experienced and is the captain. When a captain gets injured, it’s something that the team will really miss. Fingers crossed, we hope he can come back for the second Test,”

he added.
