KL Rahul’s shot became a disaster: KL Rahul is captaining the new team Lucknow Super Giants team this season. This team has been doing wonders in its very first season and has joined the title contenders. One of the reasons for this is the excellent form of his captain KL Rahul. Rahul scored a brilliant century against Mumbai Indians in the match played at the Wankhede Stadium on Sunday. This is Rahul’s second century of the season. Rahul has scored both these centuries against Mumbai. Rahul played a brilliant inning in the last match and gave a respectable score, taking his team out of trouble. During this innings, Rahul played such a shot (KL Rahul Shot) that the bowler’s head was saved from bursting.
IPL 2022: KL Rahul’s shot became a disaster for the bowler and the umpire.
On the strength of Rahul’s innings, Lucknow scored 168 runs for the loss of six wickets in the allotted 20 overs and then did not allow Mumbai to achieve this target even after playing the entire over. Mumbai’s team could only score 132 runs for the loss of eight wickets. This is Mumbai’s eighth consecutive defeat this season and they have not yet opened the account of victory. Lucknow won this match by 36 runs.
Bowler narrowly survived
Mumbai captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bowl first. Jaydev Unadkat, who came to bowl the 18th over of Lucknow’s innings, gave the fifth ball to Rahul on the middle stump on his feet. Rahul hit it in front with full force. This shot was a bit like a helicopter shot and was quite fast. Unadkat had just bowed down by putting the ball when Rahul’s shot passed through his ear and crossed the umpire and went for four runs.
