Cricket fans got to witness a thrilling encounter on Monday (April 10), where Royal Challengers Bangalore clashed against Lucknow Super Giants. However, the hosts ended up on the losing side, even after setting a target of 213 runs. Despite winning a nail-biting last-ball match, KL Rahul failed to impress critics and came under scanners. Lucknow captain KL Rahul, managed to score 18 runs off 20 balls, and was dismissed by Mohammed Siraj in the 12th over of the game.
The LSG skipper was slammed for his slow and boring innings by former cricketer, Dodda Ganesh, who called his knock the “most hideous innings”. Thrashing the young cricketer for his knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore, former India bowling all-rounder said, "This innings from KL Rahul has to be the most hideous innings played in the history of IPL ever considering the context of the game. Man. What's in his mind? Seriously. This can't happen for so long at this level. It's not school cricket."
Rahul, who has been out of form lately has managed to have a strike rate of 100 after his knocks in the four games of the tournament. He started off the season by scoring 8 runs off 12 balls against Delhi Capitals, and then scored 20 off 18 balls against Chennai Super Kings. In his innings against SunRisers Hyderabad, he scored 35 runs from 31 balls. His side will now go head-to-head with Punjab Kings on April 15, Saturday.
