It was quite bizarre: Virat Kohli and KL Rahul discuss match-winning partnership against Australia

Indian batting duo Virat Kohli and KL Rahul discussed their special partnership against Australia in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. Playing at Chennai, the Men in Blue were in deep trouble after being reduced to 2-3 while chasing 200 in the World Cup opener. 

Rescuing the team, Kohli and Rahul stepped up and then over the match as the Men in Blue registered a six-wicket win. Kohli scored a stunning 85 while Rahul smashed 97 in 115 to clinch the win. The day after the game, the former Royal Challengers Bangalore teammates talked about how bizarre the situation was when they came out to bat.

 Kohli said,  “I know the situation was not ideal when you came in, you were all over the places you were still padding up while walking in. The first thing I told you was that it was a quick turnaround. It was quite bizarre, to be honest, the start was quite bizarre. What was your feeling when you were walking in?” 

Reacting to the question, KL Rahul shared, ” I never expected it, you do lose a couple of quick wickets sometimes when the ball is doing something but not like that it still takes 4-5 overs. It doesn’t all happen in 1.5 overs or 2 overs time. I just came and sat, I just had a shower, the minute I sat down Ishan got out. I had to rush back to get taped and started wearing my pad.”

Later in the interview, KL Rahul also asked Virat Kohli about his return to Delhi as one of the best players in the world. The former RCB captain replied by talking about how the memories from his yesteryears are still fresh. He also talked about being awkward in playing in Delhi as the Arun Jaitely Stadium has the Virat Kohli stand.

“The memories are always fresh in your mind when you go back into those moments, you can still feel it because that is where everything started, that is where the selectors for the first time and you got an opportunity. So it’s always special to go back and play at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.”

“It’s a bit awkward for me, playing in front of the pavilion named after me. Honestly, I don’t like to talk about it a lot because it is a very awkward feeling but I just feel very grateful when I go back and see all the things that are present now and from where I started,” Kohli stated.
