New Delhi. In the match played between India and Hong Kong, KL Rahul has been surrounded by questions by batting slow. Not only the cricket fans, but the experts are also very upset with his approach. Venkatesh Prasad, the star cricketer of his time and the bowling coach of Team India, put KL’s class only. He said that KL Rahul is not expected to play such a game.
KL Rahul was out of Team India for a long time due to injury. He returned to the field from the match against Pakistan. In this match, he could not even open the account. In the second match of the Asia Cup against Hong Kong, his bat definitely got runs, but it did not seem that he was playing a T20 match. Venkatesh Prasad put his class on this slow batting of his. KL Rahul scored 36 runs in 39 balls against Hong Kong. Two sixes came off his bat, but zero was recorded in the account of the four.
Former India pacer Venkatesh Prasad expressed his displeasure over this style of KL Rahul. He tweeted, ‘Was there anything in the pitch, which was not understood. Such cannot be expected from KL Rahul at all. His approach is beyond comprehension. KL Rahul could not hit a single four in this match against Hong Kong. However, he definitely hit 2 sixes.
Seeing KL Rahul’s batting, a Twitter user wrote, ‘KL Rahul has never been a good batsman of T20. He always puts pressure on fellow batsman with his slow batting. Another user wrote that Shikhar Dhawan is a better batsman than KL.
Another user took a dig and wrote, ‘What a responsible innings KL Rahul played against Hong Kong’s strong bowling lineup. Weldon KL.’
