I have admired him since I was a child because he is India’s all-time leading wicket-taker. As a bowler, I enjoy playing Test matches and have always wanted to learn from him. Finally, I have the opportunity to work alongside him and learn from his experience.” Rahul told ANI.

Because the IPL 2022 league stage will be held in Mumbai and Pune, Rahul believes that the spinners will find it difficult to bowl during the second innings due to the dew factor.
“The dew factor is always present in Mumbai, especially in the evening, making it difficult for all spinners to bowl during the second innings. In terms of the Wankhede pitch, we haven’t played there in two years, but I’ve played there and at the DY Patil stadium before the IPL. So, I’m looking forward to putting my experience to good use and assisting my team in any way I can “Rahul stated.
The IPL 2022 season will begin on Saturday with a match between Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK). On Sunday, PBKS will play their first game against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
“I’m really looking forward to playing against RCB because they’ve always been a little difficult for me. This year’s team includes world-class batters such as Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis, and Glenn Maxwell, so it will be both exciting and challenging “The spinner stated.
