The 38th match of IPL 2023 was played between Lucknow Super Giants and Punjab Kings. In this match, Lucknow Super Giants scored 257 runs while batting first. Lucknow’s batsmen took advantage of it as soon as they saw a great pitch for batting. But even in this match, KL Rahul’s bat could not work and he failed once again. While other batsmen were batting at a strike rate of around 200. There KL Rahul could score only 12 runs in 9 balls. But in the meantime, an embarrassing record of KL Rahul has come to the fore in this IPL.
KL Rahul is being trolled not only for scoring less runs in this IPL but also for his slow strike rate, which is becoming a big reason behind the team’s defeat. In the match in which KL Rahul is scoring 35 or more runs, the Lucknow team is not able to score big. At the same time, in the match in which he is getting out after scoring less than 20 runs. In that match his team is making big score. It is clear from this that the longer KS Rahul bats, the lower the run rate of the Lucknow team. On the other hand, if he gets out early, then the team bats at a good run rate.
