KL Rahul has been in poor form ever since his return to playing XI post injury hiatus. He is one of the pillars of Indian T20I side and he is given Vice-Captaincy too. Rahul scored a match winning 50 during 28th September, Thiruvananthapuram match against South Africa in a low scoring game still got trolled on social media.

But Indian cricket fans and experts picked him apart for his slow scoring rate. Rahul earlier stated that he plays according to the situation and conditions. He told to the media that he cannot play in a certain fashion every time and if Strike Rate is a concern, he will work on it.

He made these comments post his 55 off 35 balls against Australia in the recently concluded series. Prior to that in Asia Cup, he failed and got out for single digit scores every time. On 28th September, he scored 51 runs off 56 balls and struggled throughout to score freely.

On the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav scored 50 runs off 33 balls, even on a tricky surface. Earlier South African top and middle order collapsed as Indian pacers Arshdeep Singh and Deepak Chahar got new ball to swing and seam, with accuracy and pace.

While the pitch seemed slightly two paced, watching Suryakumar Yadav aka SKY, bat like the way he did and knowing the talent KL Rahul is, no one anticipated him to play himself and not concentrate on accelerating. Fans, hence, started trolling him for his innings and reminded that he scored most runs again in the IPL Season 2022 but has been constantly failing at International level.

Indian team management decided to back him and the innings as well. Still, the excitement of watching a T20I game for fans holds true when they watch some big hits and uncanny shots. Hope, KL Rahul tries to concentrate on his slow scoring rate and give his best in upcoming matches. By the way, KL Rahul’s innings is the slowest in a match winning cause in T20Is.
