Yadav said, ‘Not only his father but also his uncle used to come to leave him. They wanted their child to play like other parents. They used to ask, ‘Sir, what are you doing, why not feed Rahul. The whole family wanted him to be a cricketer ‘.
Former India wicketkeeper batsman Vijay Yadav said, ‘A player should know about his strength. As a teenager, Rahul always competed with Yuzvendra Chahal, so I told him that he has to be a useful leg-spinner. Amit Mishra and Chahal were more efficient spinners. Rahul’s strength was his batting and I said that he will win IPL matches on the basis of batting.
He said, ‘I am not surprised to hit five sixes in an over. He also won two matches while playing for Punjab.
