KL Rahul takes a dig at his old team RCB: "Ee sala cup namdhe (ESCN) guru" in IPL Forum Posted Monday at 03:55 PM · Report reply 3 hours ago, Gollum said: The dislike that petty man Kohli has for Rahul is out in the open. Not only is KLR is a genius, but also a local who has played all his life in Chinnaswamy...a potential Kannadiga icon also who would only boost RCB's popularity among Kannadigas. My colleagues from Bengaluru are all rooting for Punjab because their players are playing for that team. i dont think Kohli shows a clear dislike for KLR, we do not know if its Kohli's call at all. From what it appears, KLR seems to be categorized as a 'test opener' which he obviously is but not just, he is also a future lynchpin LOI bat which he is proving now beyond any doubt. If after IPL he still faces selection politics then sure there is a problem ( but i dont think he will). But on RCB side it sure is a big loss, KLR could have become a icon for RCB in terms of popularity. With Karun and KLR playing for kings 11 lots of RCB band-wagoners will jump ship.
