KL Rahul’s honest reaction. Team India’s wicketkeeper KL Rahul spoke in detail about the Test series against South Africa, which ended in a 1-1 draw.

India secured a seven-wicket victory over South Africa in the second and final Test in Cape Town, leveling the two-match series in a swift conclusion on Thursday. After losing the initial Test in Centurion, India orchestrated a notable turnaround; fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah starred with remarkable figures of 6/61, restricting South Africa to 176 after the hosts were incredibly dismissed for just 55 in the first innings. The target of 79 was comfortably achieved in the second session, led by skipper Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer, both finishing unbeaten on 17 and 4, respectively. Notably, this Test became the shortest ever in terms of overs bowled, surpassing a record set back in 1932 involving Australia and South Africa at the MCG.

India’s wicketkeeper-batter KL Rahul spoke in detail about the Test, stating that the players were also surprised to be a part of such a Test.

“A little planning and a little change in the attitude. We can’t say we weren’t ready in the last Test match. In the last four to five years, we competed. We won a series outside of India. So weren’t ready for that. It huge hit for us. It speaks volumes of how much we enjoy playing Test cricket, how much we value playing for our country, and how much Test victories outside of India mean to us,” Rahul added.
