India batsman KL Rahul after performing brilliant in the recent matches in the IPL said that a couple of games don’t really mean much in a long tournament like the IPL and it was all about getting that one innings to turn things around.
“As players it is important that we try and perform well for our respective IPL franchises and team. It is also very important to stay in the present. If you do well, you are automatically in the race for selection. But if you worry about the selection, then you put too much pressure on yourself. I am not somebody who is thinking too much about the World Cup spot. I just want to perform for KXIP and enjoy the IPL. T20 cricket is all about having fun,” he smiled.
When it comes to the pressure of expectation and the criticism after a couple of failures, Rahul said he doesn’t let what people are saying outside get to him and he tries to keep working hard.
“I don’t know anything about too much pressure or anything. It was only two games so the talks don’t get to me and I don’t read them. Yes, it is always disappointing not to score and get off to a good start. But then, it is a long tournament and it is all about working hard and one good knock helps you to get back to scoring,” he said.
