T20 World Cup: After the IPL loss, Gautam Gambhir didn’t believe KL Rahul worthy of the World Cup

Kl Rahul And Gautam Gambhir: Gautam Gambhir, the coach of the Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL, is furious with his skipper KL Rahul.

Due to Rahul’s poor innings, Lucknow was forced to withdraw from the competition. Now, Gambhir does not think Rahul is deserving of a place in the T20 World Cup.

In IPL 2022, Gautam Gambhir was the coach of the Lucknow Super Giants. Lucknow have qualified for the playoffs for the first time in the tournament’s history.

In the Eliminator, the squad was defeated by Royal Challengers Bangalore. KL Rahul, the captain, had a fantastic tournament with the bat, becoming the second best run-scorer in the league behind Jos Buttler.

Gambhir was unconcerned

Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir has named the top seven batsmen for the T20 World Cup. KL Rahul isn’t in this, according to Gambhir. During the second T20 match between India and South Africa, Gambhir announced that Ishan Kishan and skipper Rohit Sharma would be the Indian team’s opening batsmen. For Mumbai Indians, both batters open the innings.

Suryakumar Yadav is ranked third, while Virat Kohli is ranked fourth. Deepak Hooda, Rishabh Pant, and Hardik Pandya will join his team after this. In October and November, Australia will host the T20 World Cup.

Are you frustrated by Rahul’s sluggish batting?

KL Rahul may have amassed a large number of runs in the IPL, but his strategy is frequently questioned. Lucknow was defeated by RCB by 14 runs in the IPL 2022 Eliminator.

Rahul got 79 runs in that match, although it took him 58 balls to do it. Previously, the team had to bore the brunt of Rahul’s slow batting in a number of prior encounters.

Rahul is the team’s vice-captain

KL Rahul is the Indian team’s vice-captain. At the same time, Gautam Gambhir has decided to replace him with Ishaan Kishan. Ishaan did not have a regular scoring season in IPL 2022, but he is recognized for his quick bat.

In the first T20 against South Africa, he scored 76 off 48 balls, and in the second T20 against South Africa, he scored 34 off 21 balls. He can hit the wicket regardless of the condition, but Rahul is not one of them.
