Former Karnataka player Dodda Ganesh recalled the time he first saw Rahul on the field and wished the cricketer “loads of runs.”
I saw this young boy for the first time in 2009 at the NCA and was impressed by the extra time he’d to play his shots. A few years later he won us a Ranji title and made it to the Indian team and hasn’t looked back. Happy birthday, @klrahul11. Wishing you loads of runs #KLRahul pic.twitter.com/siSLodW3Y1
