KL Rahul talked about his innings at the end of the second day of the first Test against England in Hyderabad on Friday.
Said after missing the wicket, I could have been out on zero. I will score 86 runs. Maybe tomorrow I will come and realize that I missed a century. But today I enjoyed getting out in the middle. We saw England playing yesterday and I thought this is not such a wicket. Where you wait for the loose balls. Some opportunities will have to be created. And the bowlers will have to try to keep them away from their line length. I was looking for opportunities to score runs. I had some shots in mind. If the bowlers bowl there. So I was ready to take the chance.
I wanted to see their game plan. Where can I score runs? I spoke to Rohit in the morning and he told me. That wicket is a bit slow. And you can’t go there and start playing your shots. So I just gave myself time. And when I took some shots. So I was thinking. How can I score runs?
