Indian team is driven by common goal of winning together: Rahul
Mount Maunganui, Fenruary 3: Basking in the glory of a rare 5-0 whitewash on foreign soil, KL Rahul says the Indian dressing room has no junior-senior divide since the team is driven by the common goal of winning together. This is only the third instance when India have clean-swept the opponents in away T20 series and the first time in a five-match rubber. India had earlier blanked the West Indies 3-0 in 2019 and beat Australia 3-0 in 2016. “Playing with each other we are enjoying a lot for the last 2-3 years and we help each other out. There is no senior-junior in the dressing room, we have a common goal and that is to win together for the country and the team,” said Rahul at the post match press conference.
“Travelling away and winning a series 5-0 doesn’t happen too often. So the next couple of days we will enjoy that, put our feet up and relax. Obviously we have the confidence going into the ODIs, we have been doing well for the past couple of years. Recent form for 3-4 months has been great too, personally as well as a team we have been doing well.” Rahul, who played a key role in India’s emphatic series win with 224 runs in five matches, said they have their eyes trained on the T20 World Cup in Australia. “Winning the T20 World Cup is currently in our minds and our heads, and we are planning and playing according to that. We want to see how well we can be prepared for that,” said Rahul on Sunday.
