Watch: Rahul wins battle with Cummins
Indian opening batsman KL Rahul had some exchange of words with Aussie fast-bowler Pat Cummins and eventually, the opener won the battle.
India took control on the day 3 of the first Test with Australia in Adelaide Oval as the visitors are leading by 166 runs in the second innings.
Indian opening batsman KL Rahul, who is under the spotlight in recent times because of his poor run with the bat, gained some positive rhythm on day 3 scoring just six runs short of a well-made half-century.
During his knock, Rahul played some pleasing shots to the eyes as well as had some heated moments too. One of the main shows on day 3 is the battle between Pat Cummins and KL Rahul during the second session of day’s play.
Aussies tried to provide more heat to the tense batsman KL Rahul as the batsman was under immense pressure during that time. However, the batsman managed to soak the pressure by hitting the ball over the slip cordon to the boundary line.
That added more amusement on the bowler that resulted in having some words with the opener. Rahul didn’t stop and in the very next over of Cummins, Rahul hit a magnificent six in the first ball itself.
Rahul dispatched the third ball again for a boundary through the covers and looked quite confident. Cummins again came back with a short ball as Rahul ducked. The contest created quite an energy in the middle.
KL Rahul isn't holding back!
