India opener KL Rahul, on Wednesday, said the massive controversy over his remarks on women during a TV show has humbled him as a person.
Both Rahul and Hardik Pandya were provisionally suspended for their sexist comments on women during a popular chat show. Their bans were later revoked but they still face an inquiry. The off-field controversy erupted after Rahul endured a dismal run in the four-Test series in Australia.
“It was a hard time no doubt. I mean, as a player, as a person, everyone has to go through difficult times and it was my time to go through that and, like I said, it gave me time to reflect on my game, on myself. I have always been someone who takes things as it comes. It has humbled me a little bit and you know, respect the opportunity that I have gotten to play for the country. The dream of every kid is to play for the country and I am no different. Just to value where I am, just to keep making opportunities count and put my head down and keep working on my cricket.” KL Rahul says.
India lost the short series 0-2 but Rahul made a successful comeback with scores of 47 and 50. After he was sent back from Australia, Rahul was given the opportunity to regain form in the India A home series against England Lions and he made it count.
Having stayed out of the Indian team for nearly two months, Rahul said the controversy had changed him as a person.
