Fans on Twitter reacted after Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) skipper KL Rahul played first over as Maiden against Rajasthan Royals
KL Rahul played the first over as Maiden against Royals
The 26th game of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 or currently taking place between Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.
Rajasthan Royals won the toss and opted to bowl. Their decision to field first so far has paid off as they have bowled staggeringly well with the new ball. Although they didn’t take a wicket in the powerplay. But they bowled some tight lines and lengths.
Trent Boult started the innings on high as he bowled a maiden over with the new ball and made the opposition batter look clueless. Who struggled to get going was KL Rahul. The batter has been under the firing line for the poor strike and playing a maiden over wouldn’t have done anything good.
Rahul has been struggling to get going in the tournament as he bagged a series of low scores. It remains to be seen how much he scored in the ongoing game.
Fans on Twitter react as KL Rahul Maiden Over
As KL Rahul plays first over as Maiden. Twitter lashed out at the batter for not scoring for any reason in the first over and said that the T20 game should be reduced to 19 overs. Here are some of the reactions:

KL Rahul playing out too many dot balls during powerplay has been affecting his IPL franchise and national team in T20I for so long now, already hampered us in our attempts to win two T20I World Cups in two years! This is as though he's using this IPL as practice for WTC final!

KL Rahul has played a maiden over in the very first over and been dropped twice.
Even Rajasthan Royals know his importance at the crease.

@klrahul when KL rahul is playing then the match is of 19 over for his team.bcz most of the 1 st over played by him is maiden. Why he is not playing fearless Cricket which he was used to playing earlier.
