Mirpur (Bangladesh), December 4: On Sunday, star India batter KL Rahul spoke about his new role in the ODI system, claiming that the team think tank has asked him to bat at the number four position and also keep wickets for India in the first match of the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh at Mirpur, on Sunday.Rahul said he has been doing it for the national team since 2020-21.The team think tank specifically assigned the batter's role, according to the batter.In the past 6-7 months, we haven't played any ODIs, but I've taken wickets and batted at four.I don't know the cause for Pants's release.According to the opener, the medical team would be able to tell why Pant was released.In the first ODI, the Lucknow Supergiants skipper remained on the last half-hour of play, where Bangladesh was struggling at 1369 and needing another 51 runs to win, but managed to get over the line.In this game, you should expect the unexpected. The game is never won until the last ball is dealt.The Mehidys innings and the way they fought until the end made a difference.One or two missed opportunities could have harmed us.But they did a good job. We made some mistakes, and we'll learn from them and come back strong.He (Mehidy) took risks and determined the limit.Bangladesh is playing at home, and they are doing well here.According to the 30-year-old, they are a difficult challenge. Rahul said of his outing with the willow: It was just one of those days where I was timing the ball better than everyone else.Every shot I took and the choices I took worked for me today.In Bangladesh, I've been working on it (shots) even in the last couple of (net) sessions.I attempted to push myself on this pitch and am pleased with the inning. We would have liked 30-40 more runs, though.Siraj was playing well with me.I should have stayed longer and rated it 230-240 at the end of the game.I had a dream to get there, said the batter.Put the batter down on India's inexperienced bowling lineup: We dont win or lose just because one department failed, he said. We have been battered by injuries, which have forced us to play different roles.Since saying all of this, India has no shortage of talent.The children who enroll must be supported so that they can learn and improve as they progress.We are not mad about one issue that isn't going our way. India lost the nail-biter by a wicket on Sunday.It was the team's first ODI loss to Bangladesh in seven years.
