"We are looking to work on our first innings if whenever we have to bat and start the innings. It is good learning for us in each game we play. We get the opportunity to bat first, we learn something new. Today was a good confidence booster for all of us. We did a lot of things right and hopefully, we continue to do that more often," Rahul said.

K L Rahul has been in an out the team in recent times said that it is never easy for batsmen to make a come back in the game as there is pressure in every game.

"Going in and out of the team is never easy for any player. You take a little bit of time to get used to international pressure and there is no opposition where you can walk in and score runs. My process is me being out in the middle and trying to do what I do best. Staying in that rhythm is important for me and I got that opportunity to play first-class cricket and gain some confidence," Rahul said.
