Sanjiv Goenka scolds KL Rahul

 

Notably, KL Rahul was roped in by Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at Rs 17 crore. KL Rahul switched from Punjab and started captaining LSG. Notably, under KL Rahul's captaincy, LSG has qualified for the IPL playoffs in the last two seasons. However, after defeat against SRH, LSG slipped to the sixth spot in the points table and their Net Run Rate took a huge hit after the one-sided game in Hyderabad. Lucknow have 12 points in as many games, 2 fewer than third-placed SunRisers. KL Rahul paid the price for being timid on the field. While he won the toss and opted to bat, lack of intent in the powerplay cost the visiting team. LSG managed just 27 runs and lost 2 wickets at the end of the powerplay while SunRisers, thanks to Abhishek Sharma and Travis Head's ruthless knocks, reached 107 at the end of their powerplay. The 80-run difference between the two teams' totals in the powerplay is also the highest in IPL history.
