team india star player KL Rahul For Zimbabwe the tour is very important. Rahul, who is returning after a long time from injury, will have a chance to make a mark in this series both as a batsman and as a captain. In the absence of Rohit Sharma, Rahul will take over the command of Team India on this tour. The first match of the series is to be played on Thursday and before that, while talking in the press conference, Rahul told what is his thinking as a captain. During this, he did not forget to thank the team management who remembered his contribution of the last two years despite being out of the team for two months.
Rahul doesn’t want to be like Dhoni
When asked whether he has tried to follow in the footsteps of legendary cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he said, “I cannot become anything else by going there.” Then I will not be fair to myself, to the team or to the game. I try to be who I am and let other players be what they want to be. “I can’t even compare myself with these people (Dhoni), what they have done for the country is a huge achievement and I don’t think any name can be taken like them,” he said.
thank you to the management
The Indian captain also thanked the team management, you may be out for two months but they have not forgotten what you have done for the team and the country in the last two-three years. Players really thrive in such an environment. Rahul feels that the Indian team management has been able to create an environment that bridges the gap between a good player and a great player. “It is this kind of environment which can help transform a player from a good player to a great player, he can play a lot more innings winning more matches for his team,” Rahul said.
The top-order batsman, who has scored runs at an average of over 46 with five hundreds in 42 ODIs for India, said it is very important for a player to get the support of the selectors, coach and captain. It gives you so much confidence that your mindset becomes clear and you can focus on the essentials. The player has suffered multiple injuries during his career and has just recovered from sports hernia surgery.
