T20 World Cup: Flop in IPL hit T20 International, same story of KL Rahul, did not change even against Pakistan

KL Rahul could not score runs against Pakistan.

The ICC T20 World Cup-2021 is being played between India and Pakistan at the Dubai International Stadium. India are batting first in this match but they did not get the start they needed as well as hope. Rohit Sharma got out in the very first over. After this the responsibility was on the second opener KL Rahul. If we look at Rahul’s recent form, he is fantastic. He is coming in the IPL batting well but in this high voltage match against Pakistan, Rahul’s bat lost his edge and he got bowled on the very first ball of the third over on the wavy delivery of Shahin Shah Afridi. Rahul, who beat the bowlers a lot in the IPL, could only score three runs in this match and that too after eating eight balls.

Rahul has been consistently scoring runs in the IPL but when it comes to T20 matches at the international level, his figures are disappointing. He has been consistently failing in this format at the international level. He had hit his last fifty in this format seven innings ago. He made this fifty against Australia on January 4, 2020, but since then he has been struggling for runs at the international level. In the last seven innings including this match, Rahul could not even open the account thrice. If we look at the runs of his last seven matches including this match, then they are 3, 14, 0, 0, 1, 0, 30. That means 48 runs in seven innings. There was a lot of hope from him in today’s match but Afridi ended his innings badly.

Colors set in IPL-practice match

Rahul is the captain of Punjab Kings in IPL. He batted strong this season. This season Rahul played 13 matches of IPL and scored 626 runs at an average of 62.60. During this, six half-centuries came out of his bat. Rahul’s best was 98 not out. After this, Rahul also played a strong innings in the practice match. In the warm-up match played against England, Rahul scored a brilliant half-century and scored 51 runs in 24 balls. Seeing his form, it was felt that Rahul would give a good start to the team against Pakistan, but his feet did not move on the swing-eating balls and neither the bat nor the bat returned to the pavilion. He also batted brilliantly in IPL-2020 and scored 670 runs in 14 matches and was successful in winning the Orange Cap.
