There is no denying the fact that KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal share a great camaraderie on and off the field. The duo, who come from the same state, have often opened the innings for India and also for Punjab Kings (PBKS) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Even off the field, they have been quite vivid, be it a light-hearted social media banter or celebrating each other’s success, fans don’t get to witness such friendships in cricket often.

Such is their friendship that despite tussling for the same place in Team India, the mutual admiration between the two remains unaffected. When asked to Mayank about this connection, the 31-year-old feels the common mindset to see each other grow makes their bond even stronger.

During a recent conversation on Backstage with Boria, Mayank Agarwal said, “We share a great bond as friends. He’s seen my journey and vice-versa. It’s been really nice that we’ve had that kind of friendship, even though somewhere down the line, we probably competed for the same spot. But I think the mindset has always been to help each other. To grow.”

Shedding light on Rahul’s personality, Mayank Agarwal termed his friend as a calm and composed figure, who’s always ready to help.

Mayank concluded, “In terms to KL Rahul, he’s been a very calm and composed character. He’s somebody, who’s definitely going to give you suggestion. He reads and understands the situation very well.”
