India's place in the final of Asia Cup 2023 has been decided. With a good net run rate of 4 points, the position in the final is not in danger. In the important match against Sri Lanka, Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bat first. The beginning was good but after that, the decline started. India were out for just 213 runs and were challenged to 214 runs to win. It was an easy challenge for Sri Lanka on home ground but it was not possible. The entire Sri Lankan team was reduced to 172 runs. India defeated Sri Lanka by 41 runs. In this match, Kuldeep Yadav scored 43 runs and took 4 wickets. But there came a time when India was about to lose the match. 

What did KL Rahul do?

Sri Lanka had lost three wickets for 25 runs. But Samarawickrama and Charith Asalanka made a good partnership for the fourth wicket. This partnership was becoming a headache for the Indian team, so captain Rohit Sharma handed over the team's 17th over to Kuldeep Yadav. At this time, wicketkeeper KL Rahul went to Kuldeep Yadav and said something to him. 

Kuldeep Yadav got the benefit of that tip of KL Rahul. Sadira Samarawickrama was out on the second ball. Sadira tried to hit the ball long, but the ball hit the bat and went straight into the gloves of KL Rahul. Then, taking advantage of the opportunity, KL Rahul showed him the way to the pavilion by stumping. After the match, when Sanjay Manjrekar asked KL Rahul about that strategy, Rahul said, "I don't want to take credit for Kuldeep's bowling." I have just sent a message. "We were lucky that it happened."

KL Rahul's actions reminded sports lovers of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Mahendra Singh Dhoni used to tell the bowlers about the movement of the batsmen while keeping wickets. This will benefit the bowlers. Kuldeep Yadav has also said that he benefited from Dhoni's advice. Once again KL Rahul hit the same score behind the stumps.
