This Is The Best Way To Challenge Ourselves Before The World Cup – KL Rahul
KL Rahul feels that the Australia series would help the Indian team to prepare well for the ODI World Cup in India, as the Pat Cummins-led side will walk in as one of the favourites to win the championship in 2023. He asserted that it was the best way for a team to challenge themselves ahead of the marquee event.
“I think so, they’re coming into the World Cup as one of the favourites. They’ve got some great players, some we play IPL with and we can see the impact they have. They come to India a lot, they know our pitches and conditions as well as we do”.
“This series will all be about how each team brings their skills to the forefront. So, yes, really excited about the series and this is the best way to challenge ourselves before the World Cup,” KL Rahul added.
The Australian team has arrived in India after completing a highly competitive ODI series in South Africa.
