IPL 2022: “Lucknow Super Bottlers!”- Fans troll KL Rahul, LSG for missing out on golden opportunity to finish in Top 2

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) captain KL Rahul dished out another disappointing performance against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) this season. The 30-year-old would have been keen to win the game this time as he was dismissed for a golden duck in the reverse fixture.

However, KL Rahul couldn’t do much this time around either, scoring just 10 runs off as many as 19 deliveries and that probably went a long way in hampering LSG’s chances of chasing down 178.

Fans on Twitter were disappointed to see Rahul fail to lead from the front with the bat in such a crucial game. A win for LSG would have sealed a top-two finish for them but KL Rahul and a number of other batters couldn’t quite live up to their expectations.

Some fans also trolled Rahul for his negative approach and the LSG batting for their uncertain middle-order. They also feel Rahul’s poor captaincy cost LSG some extra runs. Here are some of the reactions:

Lucknow bottling top 2 position It looks like GT vs RR in qualifier 1

Ayush Badoni ko Australia jaati Hui flight me bitha to Diya tha, but ab Singapore me jab flight halt tha vaha pe utar diya hai, vo ab Australia nahi jaa payega.

Middle-order musical chairs continue to hurt LSG. Flexibility is one thing, uncertainty is another. And they’re clearly erring on the side of the second. They’ve underutilized Holder all season but it was the final straw tonight with Hooda moved out of 3 #IPL2022 #LSGvRR

The loss is on KL Rahul.Whatta terr0rist knock by him

Disappointed to see KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma continuously denying taking the strike when left-arm bowlers open the bowling. If you don’t face your fear in the IPL, then when will you?

Kl rahul n co. are going to get another tight class from Gambhir’s side.Waiting for video🤣🤣🤣

If you remove MI, KL Rahul’s season has been very similar to Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s season.Not to forget, he has 3 ducks this season like Kohli.

MOM/Dream 11 game changer of the match – KL Rahul ❤️

Can’t believe how #LSG has manage to win 8 matches under the third class captaincy of @klrahul they simply don’t deserve the playoffs.A Khan,J Holder their most economical bowlers and they couldn’t complete their full overs quota, what a captaincy @LucknowIPL#RRvsLSG #IPL2022

Great captaincy from KL RahulHe saved avesh khan 1 over holder 2 over for next match.#IPL2022

6 years have passed since RCB vs SRH final….and KL Rahul still finds way to stab RCB in the back.

KL Rahul’s team trying best so Kumble saab’s team wont qualify 😓

Kl rahul out ho ja bhai aise khelna hai to

KL Rahul is disappointing me so much now not becoz of his failures but becoz of the way he plays despite being capable of absolutely demolish any attack@klrahul 🤒🤒

– Avesh Khan & Chameera both left with one over each.- Badoni sent to No 3 against BoultPeak KL Rahul captaincy. Two changes needed : – Manish Pandey for Badoni- Evin Lewis for Holder or Stoinis.LUCKNOW SUPER BOTTLERS 💩

Tell me some knocks of Kl Rahul that he played in pressure situations (T20) and came out victorious.

KL Rahul 10(19) with a SR of 53 😱both Kane and KL have an IPL orange cap;Kane scored more runs with a better SR in 2018 than KL’s 2020 season;Kane has more IPL playoffs runs than KLbut but KL is a classy T20 player and Kane is “very very bad T20 player” lmaoo 🤡

Iresponsilbe cricket by #kl rahul why not he play 19 ball 50 runs. Why he so much defensive. Not fit for t20 cricket. A team captains performance .rubish #LSGvRR

GG belt treatment comingRecord it and send it to RCB camp as well @klrahul

There are some ppl who turn stone into milestones!! N then there is KL Rahul who turn talented Stoinis into mere stone!!Need to send him up the order #LSGvRR

Win 1/3 games or not lose all 3 by big margins to qualify.If there is any team that may not do this. It has to be a side led by KL Rahul. Really hope he isn’t carrying the Punjab curse and they don’t drop off in an unlikely scenario. #Ipl2022 #LSG #LSGvsRR

28 required from 5 well on don’t forget KL Rahul’s innings in the PP #IPL2022 #LSGvRR

It will be unfortunate if LSG doesn’t qualify top 2 & today’s match will be to blame.No Hetmyer, got Buttler out cheaply & Sanju was back in the hut before 9th over. Inexplicable bowling changes allowed RR to reach 178. And then unjustifiable stat-padding in PP while batting.

The only match I wanted LSG to win ….

10-15 run short thi yahan Rajasthan, ye chase nahi hua LSG se, thoda swing hua ball pehle 1-2 over and that’s it. Ghooma bhi nahi hai utna. Just a lackluster batting performance.

LSG mess their line-up once again. What did Hooda do wrong at No. 3, someone please tell me… #IPL2022 #LSGvRR

LSG’s issues with the middle order have come up quite late in the tournament for them to make drastic changes. The only other option that they have is Manish Pandey who can come in place of Badoni only.


KL Rahul looked uncomfortable against Trent Boult once again

When the two teams last met, Trent Boult rattled KL Rahul’s stumps on the first delivery of the chase. The LSG captain was probably wary of Boult’s threat and rather went into a shell.

The wicket of Quinton de Kock and the failed experiment of Ayush Badoni at No.3 also didn’t help Rahul’s cause. Eventually, Prasidh Krishna got the better of his fellow statesman and LSG were in deep trouble.

However, Krunal Pandya joined Deepak Hooda at the crease and the duo stabilized LSG’s chase. Hooda particularly took the attack to arguably RR’s best bowler in Yuzvendra Chahal and the chase was nicely poised to a close finish.

Although Pandya was dismissed, it was perhaps a good entry point for Marcus Stoinis. As long as both Stoinis and Hooda were at the crease, LSG were in with a shout. But Chahal once again proved why he is a world-class bowler as he got the big wicket of Hooda.

From there on, LSG just lost their way in the chase and Stoinis was left with much to do once again. RR’s win has blown open the race for the second spot as there are multiple teams who can end up on 16 points. LSG will rue the golden opportunity that they had to seal their place in Qualifier 1.
