KL Rahul

Indian opener KL Rahul has been the biggest disappointment in the T20 World Cup 2022. Out of six matches he has departed on single digit score in five matches and has a half century in just one match.

KL Rahul who marked his comeback in international after his injury did not seem in much swing in Asia Cup 2022 too. And the notion around the cricketer which states that KL always fails to deliver in ICC tournaments is coming out to be right in every sense now.

India is playing the do or die semi final match against England and after losing the toss Indian Team came to bat first and as usual KL Rahul got out on a single digit score and failed to contribute to the team in this much important match.

And seems like KL Rahul’s poor performance has tested fans’ patience to the core. As the Indian opener got out, cricket fans called out the batsman and even demanded his removals from Indian squad.

Here are some of the Twitter reaction:

However, Indian fans are only focusing on KL Rahul and his poor dismissals in T20 World Cup 2022 but Indian skipper has more or less the same form. He too has performed good in just one match out of the six played in this tournament.

However, with the good form of Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya, the Indian team has performed well in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Even the second semi final Hardik Pandya and Virat Kohli scored half centuries which helped India in giving a total of 169 runs for England to chase.

Now the England team is playing the second innings and if they are able to defeat India and score 169 in 20 overs then they will take on Pakistan to lift the T20 World Cup trophy in Melbourne.

The Delhi Capitals captain Rishabh Pant reached an incredible milestone on Friday as he became the third-youngest player to reach 3,000 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL). In his team’s second win of the year over the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), the left-hander smashed an incredible 41 runs off of 24 balls. The 2020 runners-up also moved up from the bottom of the rankings to the ninth slot with this win.

With the final delivery of the 12th over, Pant reached the milestone when he hit Marcus Stoinis for a four. He showcased an impressive range of shots, such as his leg play and scoops over third man. After Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill, the skipper of DC was the third-youngest player to surpass 30,000 runs.

Surprisingly, among the 25 batters who have scored more than 3,000 runs, he has the third-highest strike rate (148.4), just behind AB De Villiers (151.68) and Chris Gayle (148.96).

After Kuldeep Yadav returned, the DC bowlers did a fantastic job of destroying the LSG batting lineup at 94/7 with three wickets taken. But teenager Ayush Badoni’s bravery, who scored 55 off 35 deliveries, helped the Super Giants put up a respectable 167/7 total on the board.

The DC batters took over at that point and led this run-chase without any problem. In the seventh over, having lost both of their openers at 63 runs, debutant Jake Fraser-McGurk teamed up with Rishabh Pant to register his first-ever IPL half-century. Fraser-McGurk hit 4 fours and 5 sixes in his 55 runs for 35 balls. Meanwhile, KL Rahul stumped Rishabh Pant off a delivery from Ravi Bishnoi as he was very close to his half-century at 41.

However, the duo had contributed to making sure DC would easily meet the target; they also became the first team to beat Lucknow this year by successfully chasing a total of more than 160 runs.
