Indian opening batter KL Rahul on Friday presented his ambition to win the World Cup for India and create history. At present, Rahul is a part of the Indian squad playing T20 World Cup in the UAE.
“Growing up, I watched the 2011 World Cup at home, that’s when we won the World Cup and things changed for me. From that day on, I was like, this is what I want to do. I want to win a World Cup for my country, win one or two or three and be part of the world cup and create history,” he said.
The ongoing ICC T20 worldcup is Rahul’s second World Cup appearance for India having earlier participated in the 2019 edition of the 50-over tournament in England.
Rahul scored an 18-ball fifty on Friday in Dubai helping India to chase 86-run against Scotland in just 6.3 overs to take their net run rate above Afghanistan and New Zealand.
