“In pressure situations..u can’t expect”, Twitter reacts as KL Rahul yet again fails under pressure

India and Bangladesh are currently involved in an ODI encounter. Batting first, despite a forgettable start, Bangladesh made 271 runs in the first innings. Chasing this target, India was under immediate pressure due to frequent loss of wickets. KL Rahul could not leave an impact as he got out for just 14 runs. Here, we take a look at how Twitter reacted as KL Rahul yet again fails under pressure in the second ODI against Bangladesh.

KL Rahul yet again fails when under pressure

The Indian cricketer has been going through a rough patch in recent weeks. There has been criticism that he hardly plays well under pressure. This was yet again proved on Wednesday. With Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan and Washington Sundar getting out early, India needed a strong partnership between Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul. Especially with Rohit Sharma having hurt himself, it was the last recognized batting pair for India. However, Rahul failed yet again when India needed a strong performance by him.

It is high time that the management addresses the issue with KL Rahul. He hardly steps up when needed and this is affecting the team in crucial games. Moreover, some of the other players such as Sanju Samson are not getting chances to show how they would respond in similar situations. Pressure is also mounting on KL Rahul to perform well. If this goes the same way, his spot could come under the scanner before the 2023 ODI World Cup.


Twitter reacts to the player’s inconsistent form

KL Rahul has been the subject of a lot of trolls and criticism on social media. While he dropped a catch to draw the ire of the fans in the first game, his batting performance has done the same in the second ODI. If India goes on to lose this game, the fans will come down hard on him again.
