Indian cricket fans are crazy for players; they can go to any extent to watch them live in the stadium. Captain KL Rahul met a young fan a day before the opening match against Zimbabwe in Harare.
The boy first clicked photos with Rahul and Ishan Kishan and then informed them that he is a huge fan of the stand-in skipper.
While walking back, Rahul asked him: “Kal match dekhne aaoge? (Will you come to watch the match tomorrow?” The boy gave a big smile and said: “Ayenge! School gaya bhaad mein (Of course! To hell with school).”
Rahul urged him to refrain from skipping school. “School mein utna kuch important hai bhi nahi kal (There’s nothing much important to do at the school tomorrow),” he replied.
Journalist Vimal Kumar uploaded the video of the entire incident.
Rahul is making a comeback after the Indian Premier League 2022 and is leading the side in Rohit Sharma’s absence. KL was injured and was then diagnosed with COVID-19.
