Asia Cup, India vs Sri Lanka: KL Rahul Flops Again, Fans Share Disappointment On Twitter
KL Rahul had started the tournament with a duck against Pakistan and followed it up with an unusually slow knock against Hong Kong. He showed good intent against Pakistan in the Super 4 clash but has failed to register a single fifty in 4 knocks in the tournament.
India batter KL Rahul had another disappointing day with the bat during the Super 4 Asia Cup clash against Sri Lanka on Tuesday, at Dubai International Stadium. The opener once again failed to register a big score as he was dismissed LBW by Maheesh Theekshana in the second over of the innings, with team's score at 11/1. Rahul, whose form has been a major topic of concern for some time, failed to answer his critics yet again.
