As the season got over, KL Rahul gave an interview to the official site of Kings XI Punjab, where he promised the fans of KXIP, that the team will left the trophy in the next season.
Talking about his favorite moment from the league, he said:
“I think it’s the first game when I got a 14-ball 50. It was absolutely unbelievable! I completely outdid myself there.”
“I still am amazed that I got the fastest fifty in the IPL ever and it kind of set the tone for the reason of the season as well. I am grateful for a lot of things this season. I have made great friends along the way, great memories, there has been a lot of learning,”
He was also asked about the captaincy skills of Ravichandran Ashwin, talking about which he said:
“Obviously, it was a bit up and down because of the results but, we had a good time together. The first half was obviously a great way to start the tournament. And unfortunate for us and the captain that the second half did not go our way. But, yeah it was a great learning and I am sure it was a great experience for him (Ashwin) as a captain,”
“Handling a young team is never easy, but, I think he did a great job. He’s given a lot of feedback to the players, what he thinks about where they can improve so these boys will definitely come back stronger, and his leadership would have helped a lot of players, a lot of bowlers, especially,”
He then promised the fans of Kings XI Punjab, that the team is different this time and will return back more stronger. He asked the fans of the team to forget what happened in the past and to look forward to the next season, where his team will lift the trophy.
