Rahul fails to impress – The talented right-handed batter is in great form this season, second only to Jos Butler in the Orange Cap standings. After his last dismissal against his former team PBKS, Rahul has 374 runs in nine innings, including two centuries. The funny thing is that he has also been out for zero runs twice. Rahul’s average in IPL 2022 is 53.42 and his strike rate is also impressive which falls to 143.84. His latest failure could now see Jos Butler take advantage and increase his leadership.

Why did PBKS release L Rahul?Although there was a lot of hype and build-up surrounding Rahul’s performance, his relationship with the franchise was also a matter of controversy. PBKS tried to hold him back late last season before the auction in February. But the player was reluctant and refused to sign, instead joining as captain of the new franchise LSG.

Rahul breaks silence The former PBKS captain told the media before the start of the season, “I’ve been with them for four years and I’ve had great runs with them. Just wanted to see what was there for me and if there was any new journey for me. It was obviously a tough call. I have been associated with Punjab for a long time. I wanted to see if I could do something else. “

Owner and CEO Ness Wadia opened her mouth about Rahul’s release – KL Rahul’s release was in the limelight when team owner and CEO Ness Wadia also decided to jump in and said, “I think KL is exemplary in everything he does. The way he fought after going through a lot of trouble two years ago – he is one of the only cricketers who is consistent. But as I said, cricket is a member of about 11 teams, not one.

Rahul’s start in LSG is great – Rahul’s great form though is a characteristic of a great player because he continues to progress as both a player and a captain. Since leaving the franchise, he has led the Indian team in both limited overs and Test match cricket. His impressive performances for the LSG could be a bitter pill to swallow for the PBKS as they are fighting in the mid-table of the IPL standings.
