KL Rahul has recently been named as the ODI captain of the Indian team for the South Africa series in the absence of Rohit Sharma. While the stylish opener lets his bat do most of the talking, his calm demeanour on and off the field has been highly praised as well.
Rahul’s off-field persona has gone really well with the warrior-style tattoos that wear much of his skin while most of those arts have been a mystery.
The 29 year-old is fascinated with tattoos and gets himself inked wherever he wants. But among all his tattoos, Rahul picks ‘Deshi Basara’ meaning 'Rise Up' as his favourite one.
It is being said that after a woeful 2018 in England, Rahul was dropped from the Indian team in the following year and that is when the ‘Batman’ fan resorted back to his friend, David Mathias. It is Mathias who explained what is ‘Deshi Basara’ and Rahul got it inked on his body.
“Of all the tattoos in his body, Rahul is most excited and proud to show that Batman tattoo. He has inscribed a line from Batman Rises- ‘Deshi Basara’! It means ‘Rise’ and it was such a cool scene too,” he said.
Mathias has recently revealed how they watched ‘Batman Returns – The Dark Knight’ three times and got so hooked on the series that both of them watched all the earlier films of the same franchise.
Currently Rahul is on ominous touch and he would like to continue his good form in the New Year.
