KL Rahul’s knock against Bangladesh was decorated with high-quality shots.

KL Rahul has revealed that the management asked him to keep wickets in one-day internationals. Rahul also added that he enjoyed batting at the No.4 slot in the first ODI against Bangladesh.

The right-handed batter was the only player to score a fifty, but his effort went in vain as the Men in Blue lost the game by one wicket.

He made 73 off 70 as India were bowled out for 186 in 41.2 overs.

“We haven’t played a lot of ODIs for long, but if you look from 2020-21, I have batted at No.4 and kept wickets in ODIs. I have been given this role by the management. I don’t know the reason behind Pant’s release. The medical team can give you a better picture,” he said.

Rahul said that his hard work in the training session paid off but felt that India were short of runs in the opening game of the series.

“I timed the ball better in the first game and felt nice. I worked on it in the last few sessions in Bangladesh. I challenged myself on this track and it came through. I am pleased with my innings. I could have stayed for longer and taken our score to 230-240,” he added.
