Asia Cup 2022: Team India’s failure to qualify for the Asia Cup final has raised many questions on social media. And, KL Rahul’s poor form with the bat is one of the biggest worries for the team going forward. In the 5 matches that he played in the Asia Cup 2022, he registered scores of 0 36, 28, 6 and 62. More than the number of runs he scored, the strike rate with which he scored those runs earned him a lot of criticism. However, Rahul feels it’s going to take some effort for him to return to his pre-injury form as well.

While talking about this, Rahul opened up on his own struggles, and shared in the post match press conference, “Coming back after a big injury and surgery, I have realised playing the last few games that it is not as easy as you think. I was eager to come and play but obviously finding the same touch or same rhythm wasn’t coming easily as I thought it would. It is a learning for me as a player, happy I could spend some time in the middle and I started feeling good. In this format when you hit the first six off the middle gives you the confidence, I think the Hong Kong game I got a free-hit and though I didn’t time it as well I could, I still hit the ball out of the ground and it felt good.”

Asia Cup 2022: Team India have failed to reach the final stage of the tournament

On the other hand, despite the dominant performance against Afghanistan, India have knocked out of the Asia Cup, winning just one of the three Super 4 matches as well. Rahul also admitted that he is disappointed with the result. But, he also shared that losing is a part of the journey and he is hopeful of using these lessons in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2022.

“The result has been disappointing. Ideally we would have wanted to play the final and challenge ourselves. We came into this tournament wanting to play the final and winning the big tournaments but it didn’t go our way, we take the positives. We have been challenged and it is time to sit back and reflect. Losing is not great but sometimes you have to take it part of the journey, our vision is the World Cup and hopefully, the learnings will help us for the World Cup,” KL Rahul concluded.
