KL Rahul played a slow innings
“We have played in tough conditions on this kind of pitch but I didn’t get runs, it’s a tough job. It’s amazing for Suriya to come there and play the shot. We have seen how the ball was bouncing and moving around. Two paces and then what could have been very difficult for a batsman was today’s wicket, and so Surya has to come from this point of view to hit the ball as soon as it comes. He wanted to play his shot as soon as he got up, it gave me the advantage that he took time to bat on the second left.

“We practiced here yesterday and it was a very pleasant experience. We all came with a strong mindset as it was not going to be an easy wicket. I was all set to work for all the challenges as well as work for the team.”
