This transformation came about when he met actor Suniel Shetty, who also happens to be Rahul’s father-in-law. Prasad’s visit to the Swami Narayan temple in New Jersey, USA, alongside Suniel Shetty, led to a change in his outlook.
In a shared photograph with the Bollywood star, Prasad revealed that he had privately offered prayers for Rahul’s success in the upcoming World Cup, with the hope of silencing any detractors.
“Visited the Swami Narayan temple in New Jeresy with Anna. Prayed for well being of all Bharatvasis & for the Indian Team to do well in the World Cup. Also secretely prayed for KL to smash it to all corners, have a great world cup and silence his critics like me. Sab khush rahein,” Prasad wrote in his X (formerly Twitter) handle.
As the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced a strong 17-member squad for the upcoming Asia Cup 2023 on Monday, cricketer KL Rahul made a comeback to the Indian team.
Team India chief selector Ajit Agarkar said on Monday that KL Rahul is having a niggle and is expected to recover by the second or third game of the Asia Cup.
Earlier, Prasad had been critical of the Indian team management for persisting with KL Rahul to partner Rohit Sharma at the top of the innings despite a poor run of batting form.
KL Rahul has featured in 54 ODIs for India and has scored 1986 runs at an average of 45.13 and a strike rate of 86.57.
