Will KL Rahul leave captaincy? Sanjeev Goenka will not even retain now!


KL Rahul may step down from captaincy in the next two matches Video with LSG owner Sanjeev Goenka went viral

New Delhi. After Lucknow Supergiants’ crushing defeat by 10 wickets against Sunrisers Hyderabad, the captaincy of team captain KL Rahul is also under threat. LSG remains in the race for the IPL playoffs but after the crushing defeat the team has suffered in the last two matches, KL Rahul’s captaincy looks uncertain. He can step down as captain in the remaining two matches of the league. The vice-captain can be made the captain in his place. Apart from this, now there is doubt about KL Rahul continuing with this team.

KL Rahul, who joined the Lucknow team for a record Rs 17 crore in the 2022 auction, is very unlikely to be retained by the team before the big auction in 2025. However, meanwhile, there is speculation that the captain himself may leave his post and focus on his batting in the next two matches. An IPL source told PTI on condition of anonymity, ‘There is a five-day break before the next match against Delhi Capitals. No decision has been taken at the moment but it is understood that if Rahul plans to focus only on his batting in the remaining two matches, then the management will not have any problem.

Video of Sanjeev Goenka and KL Rahul goes viral
After Sunrisers openers Travis Head (89 not out off 30 balls) and Abhishek Sharma (75 runs off 28 balls) chased down the 167-run target in less than 10 overs, Lucknow franchise owner Sanjiv Goenka’s response to Rahul’s A video of them talking in anger had surfaced on social media. Earlier, on the same wicket of Hyderabad, the batsmen of the visiting team had to struggle to score runs. Apart from this, the slow batting of Rahul (29 runs in 33 balls) in the powerplay is also a major reason for Lucknow’s worse than expected performance in this lucrative league and it seems that Goenka’s patience has finally paid off.

KL Rahul has scored 460 runs
This star batsman of India has scored 460 runs in 12 matches and is once again close to crossing the 500 run mark in the season but the problem is his strike rate which is 136.09. However, the Lucknow team’s claim is still not completely over because the team can reach 16 points by winning its remaining two matches against Delhi Capitals in New Delhi on 14th May and Mumbai Indians in Wankhede on 17th May. However, it will be very difficult to improve the net run rate of minus .760 significantly. If Rahul leaves the captaincy, then the team’s most effective batsman and vice-captain Nicholas Puran in the current season can fulfill this responsibility in the remaining two matches.
