Virat Kohli hogged headlines for having a detailed conversation with the opener in the nets before the Bangladesh game.
The internet got filled with speculations about the conversation the duo could be having. Meanwhile, KL Rahul, after the game, shed light on the conversation and opened up on the details of the chat.
“We discussed how the conditions were different this time than our last tour. We have come to Australia previously and expected the wickets to behave in a certain manner, but it has not happened so far. So, we talked about that.”
“I was not low on confidence, but I tried to understand Virat’s mindset. He is on a great run, and I wanted to understand his thought process while he is in the middle. That is how we function. We help each other.”
