new Delhi: The new IPL team Lucknow Super Giants has already faced defeat in the match. Gujarat Titans defeated Lucknow by 5 wickets in a thrilling match. The captaincy of Lucknow is in the hands of KL Rahul. KL Rahul has captained the IPL in the past too, but as a captain, Rahul has not got much success. In this match too, Lucknow was in a good position, but in the last 5 overs, Rahul took some wrong decisions, due to which the team lost the match and veterans are also raising questions on Rahul’s captaincy. Former Team India player Aakash Chopra is also involved in this.

Questions raised on Rahul’s captaincy

There was a turning point in the match played between Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants when Gujarat needed 68 runs in the last 5 overs to win the match, but only then Rahul took some such decisions due to which the team had to lose the match. On this, Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube, ‘Some question marks arise on the captaincy of KL Rahul because Lucknow’s best bowler Dushmantha Chamira had one over left. He took two wickets in his first two overs and he did only 3 overs. He further said, ‘Deepak Hooda gave 22 runs in his over and then KL gave the 17th over with the wet ball to Ravi Bishnoi. The fast bowler should have done that over, for that over you went to the spinner which was a calculation error.

Get 3 overs done with this deadly bowler

When the team of Gujarat Titans came out to chase the runs, the team lost its two wickets in the first two overs of Dushmantha Chamira. Chamira was playing for the first time in the IPL and was also seen in excellent form. But Lucknow captain KL Rahul missed the over calculation and made Chamira bowl only 3 overs in the entire match. Dushmantha Chamira gave only 22 runs in her 3 overs with an economy of 7.33 and also took 2 wickets. Had Rahul bowled one more over to Chamira, the outcome of the match could have gone in his favor as well.

This over became the reason for the defeat

Batting first, Lucknow team scored 158 runs for the loss of 6 wickets. In reply, Gujarat team won the match by 5 wickets in the last over. Chasing runs in this match, 91 runs in 15 overs and lost 4 wickets, at this place the match was in the hands of Lucknow but KL Rahul made a big mistake. He was handed the 16th over to the sixth bowler Deepak Hooda, in this over Gujarat scored 22 runs and made a comeback in the match. Lucknow had the overs left for bowlers like Dushmantha Chamira and Avesh Khan, but this mistake of Rahul made the whole team turn.

KL Rahul as captain in IPL

KL Rahul’s figures as captain in IPL have not been much special. Rahul has so far captained in 22 matches of IPL. During this, Rahul’s team could win only 8 matches, while he had to face defeat in 12 matches. Apart from this, two matches were inconclusive. KL Rahul would definitely like to improve these figures in the coming matches.
