The Indian cricket team has been struggling with the opening slot in Test cricket as a number of batsmen have failed to cement a place in the top order of the Test side mainly due to inconsistent scores.
KL Rahul is one player who has been given a lot of opportunities by the team management in all formats, however, he is yet to impress in the longer format. After his mediocre show in both innings of the Antigua Test, he has said that he needs to practice patience more than anything in order to become a good red ball batsman.
“I am very disappointed but there are a lot of things I’m doing right. I Just need to keep my head down and so some patience. I just have to prolong the good things I’m doing till I get to 35-45. I’m batting well, I looked comfortable in both the innings and my head-space is very good. Happy about a lot of things,” he said.
