pretty sweet for us. That's where the fun of Tests comes in."
However, Rahul did not make a mistake in praising the Tigers in the press conference after the
match. He said, "Both the Test and ODI series were very competitive. Although we lost the ODI
series. But Bangladesh played very good cricket. They won as a worthy team. On the other hand,
it feels good to win the Test series. I learned a lot from this tour. I hope I will do better
homework when I come to visit Bangladesh in the future. I need to prepare better to play well."
Although personally Rahul did not spend the series very well. He batted in a total of 7 innings
in three ODIs and two Tests. Where this opener did not even see a half-century. This Indian may

in the T20 series that India is going to play after a few days. However, he has not yet opened
his mouth on the matter.
