So RCB lost to Rahul

Recommended Posts

KLR 132*

RCB 109 ao

 

How often does this happen in T20 cricket? In ODIs and T20s there are examples, like Jayasuriya 189 match, Rohit 264 or Hayden vs poyzzz in 2002 Sharjah test.

 

Gayle and Baz in IPL, any Indian before Rahul? What a message though. Now how will Kohli bench him in T20Is to accomodate Dhawan/Rahane? 

 

My only interest in this IPL is performance of youngsters (mainly DD), with the T20 WC scheduled next year hope others like Pant, Iyer, Shaw, Gill, Gopal come up with similar performances. 

 

And yeah hail King Rahul, the best T20 batsman in the world since 2016 :hatsoff:Once in a generation talent!!!!

Wasn't Rahul with RCB earlier? Gun batsman, Indian so no quota problem, in his prime years, has another skill as keeper so not 1D, box office entertainment, local lad, why the hell did they let such a gem go :hysterical:

 

Kohli's insecurity? RCB TM/owners' 4D chess?

Letting go KLR has to be the biggest blunder of RCB..As inconsistent as Rahul is in LOIs, he is by far the most suited player to open along with Rohit for India in t20s and he has displayed it many times. Cant believe he could not find permenant fixture in t20 team even after his heroic knock in florida in 2016. Dhawan and Rahane should be nowhere near Indian t20 team.

Letting him go might have been just the boon Rahul needed may be :giggle:

When he was dropped in T20I once, he was averaging close to 50 and had 2nd or 3rd highest SR (145) in world? He was ranked among top 10 T20I batsmen in world and had scored 2 fifties earlier.

 

If a batsman can be dropped with that form, anything can happen.

I ll to congratulate the true fans of KL Rahul @Gollum @Jimmy Cliff @Lannister @Ankit_sharma03, who were championing his cause even when he was a getting bowled consecutively in tests in 2018 and was dropped in the Asia Cup harshly. 

Though he was treated harshly in test cricket in second half of 2017 (despite his brilliant series against Aus that year), he lost his touch/confidence in that format in 2018/19. He needs to prove himself in FC and India-A tours to mount a comeback.

 

But so badly treated in the other 2 formats. Snubbed in T20s after his epic start in that format in 2016. And this TM had so much time to nail that #4 spot, clowns tried Raina, UV, Rahane, Jadhav, Rayudu, Pandey, Shankar, Dhoni...basically everyone apart from Rahul/Iyer, 2 guys best suited for that role. KL failed in 3 innings in Lanka 2017, so booted out. What a dumb* agenda driven TM!!!! Even young Kohli would have been turned into Umar Akmal by this TM.

not all at #4

Correction. In the 2017 SL series KLR was sent as #4 in only one of the 3 matches. Other two times he went in as #3 and #5.

 

Imagine the clownery of our TM. Gives a youngster just 3 chances in the MO, but even there sent in at 3 different positions in 3 innings. WTF!!!

 

What's even more bizarre @SK_IH, we played 5 ODIs in that series. First match we won by 9 wickets. But in other 4 matches we had 4 different players at #4: 

2nd ODI: Jadhav at #4

3rd ODI: KLR at #4

4th ODI: Pandya at #4

5th ODI: Pandey at #4

 

All a build up to playing Pant at #4 in the WC SF :hysterical:

 

No wonder things turned out the way they did.

This is just sad. I hope people see how Virat Kohli can never be considered in a debate regarding great captaincy. The fact is Iyer & Rahul both were mistreated in the run up to the world cup, which sabotaged India's chances.

It's is rarer in tests though.

One batsman outscoring both of opponent team's innings is more common than you would expect:

Cook 294, Ind (224, 244)

Smith 2017 Pune....109 vs 105, 107

Dravid 2004 Rawalpindi....270 vs 224, 244

Sachin 248 wallah match in Bangladesh

Kohli's 200 against SL in the 2017 home series

Rohit against RSA in Ranchi last year

Warner 335* against poyzzz

 

Many more examples, always a chance with 200+ individual scores. Especially for those ATG WI, Aus sides. 

 

Outscoring 2 innings combined much tougher, like Hayden (119) vs Pak (59+53) in Sharjah, magic of poyzzz :hysterical:
