However, Rahul, who wore a pensive look on Saturday (December 9), took to micro-blogging website Twitter – to post his photograph which saw him sitting at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.

The batsman in the form of Rahul was seen resting at the said venue which is subsequently his home ground, as he reiterated he had enjoyed the time while believing in the tranquillity.

“Enjoying my quiet and peace at my favourite place,” Rahul posted the caption of the photo on his official Twitter handle.

One of the Twitter users, Khyati Srivastava in his response to Rahul stated: “this stadium is the most beautiful stadium I have ever seen’.

The 25-year-old Karnataka-based Rahul has an outstanding run in the top-flight cricket while representing Team India which saw him struggling in the 50-over format after registering hundred on his debut in 2016 against Zimbabwe in Harare.

Moreover, Rahul has been spectacular with the bat in Tests followed by Twenty20 International fixtures in his early days of international career.

However, his fitness has been the concern for the side which further saw the right-handed batsman struggling to convert the fifties in hundreds.

Having the potential to make count into something big while playing a significant role for the national side, Rahul has further set his eye on his complete fitness to cement his spot at the top where there is a massive competition in the Indian fold.

Apart from the limited-overs cricket, Rahul, who has been named in the Virat Kohli-led India’s Test squad for South Africa would further be working hard to take against the Proteas challenge in the Proteas soil, as the first Test of the three-match series will be beginning from January 5 in Cape Town.
