KL Rahul is feeling confident after a prolific run in the recently-concluded Indian Premier League where he finished as the second highest run-scorer with 593 total runs. KL Rahul will carry his form into the upcoming World Cup and there are talks regarding him taking guard at No. 4 position.

KL Rahul’s recent career graph has witnessed a lot of ups and downs, but the opener has stuck to his guns and defied all the odds in the Indian Premier League where he was the highest run-scorer from India. It started with a fruitful stint with India A against England Lions and then T20s against Australia and he managed to carry his form in the IPL as well.  

Rahul has said that he is feeling pretty confident after a successful run in recent times. "Form is an overrated word. The last couple of months have been good with the bat. Playing the series against England Lions gave me time to focus on my skill, then did well against T20s against Australia and then the IPL. I am feeling pretty confident," Rahul said, reported PTI. 

Rahul has also been named in the 15-man Indian squad for the World Cup and there are thoughts of him batting at No.4. Although Vijay Shankar is the frontrunner for the said position, the opportunity is still there. 

"The selectors have made it clear. I am part of the team and will go with whatever the team decides when we get there," Rahul said.

Rahul had a vulnerable time with the bat in Australia where he struggled to get runs and looked bereft of oomph. 

"I realised there was no problem with my skills. Form is a very over-rated word but yes not performing well in Australia is hard on any player. Everyone wants to perform. I just took it in my stride and took it as part of the journey. I am happy with where I am at right now," Rahul added.
