Mohali: The captain is very important in the game of cricket. The team depends on him to a great extent. The captain leads the team from the front. But KL Rahul, the captain of Lucknow Super Giants, is not able to do anything like this. Rahul, known for his class batting, is finding it difficult to score runs in IPL-2023. Rahul also disappointed against Punjab Kings on Friday.
When Rahul walks, he scores runs in the best way. But this time his bat is as if rusted. He is not scoring runs. In the runs he is scoring, his strike rate remains such that it reminds of Test in T20 game.

could not take advantage
Rahul is continuously failing in IPL-2023, but he has such a status that still he is expected to play a good innings in every match. The same was expected against Punjab and even luck had supported them here. On the first ball of Gurnoor Brar’s first over, playing his first IPL match, Arthav Taide dropped his catch at gully.
Rahul should have taken advantage of this gift of life. But Rahul failed this time too. Rahul could not convert this gift of life into a big innings. He got out after scoring only 12 runs. He hit a four and a six in nine balls. With this, the team and fans of Lucknow got disappointed again.
