‘Demand immediate removal’: Fans disappointed with KL Rahul’s underwhelming performance at T20 World Cup | Cricket News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: Team India‘s first defeat at the ongoing T20 World Cup in Australia was courtesy a batting debacle against South Africa in Perth on Sunday. As India managed a below par 133 thanks to a horrendous batting performance, the Proteas comprehensively defeated Rohit Sharma and co. to go atop their group.
Barring Suryakumar Yadav, who was the lone warrior in the clash against South Africa — scoring 68 off 40 — the entire batting order crumbled like a pack of cards on a pace friendly Perth wicket.
KL Rahul in particular has had a torrid run in the T20 World Cup so far and once again the opener failed against the Proteas, scoring only 9 runs off 14 balls and was a hot topic of discussion on social media after Sunday’s game.
With scores of 4, 9 and 9 in the tournament so far, Rahul has been in the line of fire and even calls of dropping him for Rishabh Pant have been cropping up. And along with the anger of the fans, memes making fun of Rahul’s batting performances too have been storming the social media.
Here are a few reactions after another Rahul fell for a low score again at the T20 World Cup on Sunday.

India face Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in their final two Group 2 matches on November 2 and 6. Both are must-win games for India if they are to qualify for the semis.
