Nottingham. Young India batsman KL Rahul says that he learned from his failure during the 2018 tour of England that it is important to control his back shots in tough conditions and that is helping him on the current tour. Rahul scored a century in the three-day warm-up match before the Test series against England and scored 84 runs in the first innings of the first Test to give India a 95-run lead.
Rahul said in the press conference after the third day’s play, “A lot used to go on in my mind. I used to think that in Test cricket I can play two or three different shots off each ball but I understood that they have to be controlled. It is important to avoid playing some shots that have happened. I have improved by taking lessons from my past poor performances in Test cricket.
He praised England’s fast bowlers James Anderson and Stuart Broad saying, “It is challenging to play here. He has a great bowler. Anderson and Broad are very skilled and have won matches for the team many times. It’s not easy to play them.”
