Former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has said that India wicket-keeping batter KL Rahul is scoring his runs in sublime fashion. India qualified for the final of the ongoing Asia Cup 2023 after beating Sri Lanka by 41 runs at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Speaking on his YouTube channel, Harbhajan said Rahul is playing really well and is scoring runs in a sublime fashion. Rahul scored an unbeaten century against Pakistan on his return from a long-term thigh injury.
“Ishan Kishan’s partnership with KL Rahul was crucial. I hope I don’t jinx it, but KL Rahul is playing really well. I hope he does not get injured or something. He is scoring runs in a sublime fashion and it did not look like he was playing on the same pitch as the other batters,” said Harbhajan Singh.

“Rohit Sharma played brilliantly on a sluggish surface and looks in excellent touch ahead of the 2023 ODI World Cup. He played well against Pakistan and now against Sri Lanka as well,” Harbhajan Singh added.
