According to India Today reports, Rahul cited that “I think the performance I do in the IPL remains in the IPL, it is done, its over. It helped me come back in the team in all three formats of the game that is a great thing. But, when I put on the blue kit, it is a completely different scenario, I have to start afresh and cant thinks of past performances. That is the biggest challenge for me,”
“A lot of teams touring England have struggled there and for a young team like us, that is what we strive for. We love to be challenged, as individuals and as a team. We want to go there and give our best shot and show the world that that’s the kind of cricket we play, that is how we take up the challenges. It should be great and interesting three months in the UK,” said KL Rahul.
