In the mid-inning, KL Rahul said,
“It has been a while since I opened the batting in a One-Day International. Bit of nerves but happy that I could get the team off to a start like that. We know that with Pakistan the initial threat is Amir and Hasan Ali who can seam the ball a little bit. It was important for us to be smart and play out the first ten overs. I am happy I did that. I won’t lie, I was nervous about the hype of the India-Pakistan game, but it was more because I hadn’t opened the batting in a while. “
“Getting an opportunity after almost two years, so I was more nervous about that. I think so (it is a good total). We all know the conditions here, it has been raining, and the wicket has been undercover, so we were thinking 260-270 would be a good target as it was slow and sticky at the start. To get past 300, it gives us that extra boost and we have the bowlers. If it spins, then it will help our bowlers.”
