“It’s a ritual for me to visit this pancake place whenever i am in Brisbane. I indulge myself in my guilty pleasure. The ice-cream will be unhealthy, but it’s okay, we have training later so will burn all the calories”, said Rahul.
Rahul, who made his Test debut at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground, revealed that the stadium was so huge that he could not spot MS Dhoni, who was India’s captain.
“When I played my first Test at Melbourne, you know how huge the Melbourne field is, I was standing at deep square leg. Mahi bhai was our captain, he was trying to move him, I couldn’t even see him. In the background you cannot pick it up, it is so far” the right-hander revealed.
The right-hander shares a unique bond with Australia as he made his India A as well as India debut in the country. He said that the crowds are always against the Indian side whenever they play in Australia which makes the cricket even more exciting.
“The crowd is really against us, they love their cricket, but they will make our lives hard on the ground. That is why cricket in Australia is exciting,” Rahul added.
After having lost a close contest in Brisbane, India went on to clinch the third match at Sydney, which was also a series-levelling affair. Virat Kohli starred with the bat and Krunal Pandya stole the show with a 4-wicket haul.
