KL Rahul hits out at keyboard warriors

KL Rahul hit a masterful hundred against South Africa in Centurion on Day Two and had a word for his fans.

Social media is a pressure

Today I have scored a hundred so people are singing praises. Three-four months ago, everybody was abusing me.

It affects each person

Nobody's that great that they can completely avoid what has been said and the criticism they're getting.

It is the hardest thing

Anyone who says that doesn't affect them at all, I'm sure is lying. I tried to go back to the person that I am, and worked on how I don't change myself by getting affected by these things.

It's part of the game

The sooner you realise that staying away from it is good for your game and your mindset the better it is. It is difficult obviously.
