KL Rahul

Before IPL 2024, India’s Rohit Sharma and Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty featured in an ad showcasing their Mumbai Indians bond, with KL Rahul also making an appearance. However, Rahul, captaining Lucknow Super Giants, faced a cool reception due to the rivalry.

Now, with LSG’s season concluded, the IPL competition has eased, leading to Rahul and Suniel supporting Rohit for the upcoming T20 World Cup, where he leads Team India. In a post-match interview, Rahul affirmed their joint support for “Sharma ji ka beta” and the Indian team during the World Cup.

“I am on my father-in-law’s side now. We both will be cheering for Sharma ji ka beta for the upcoming world cup. We will be glued to the television and sending all our love to the Indian team,” Rahul cheekily remarked.

Rahul also expressed disappointment as Lucknow Super Giants ended sixth in IPL 2024, missing the playoffs for the first time in three seasons. He cited injuries and departures affecting the team’s performance, preventing them from uniting effectively.

“Very disappointing (season). At the start of the season, I felt we had a very strong season and most bases covered. Couple of injuries happen which happens to every team every season but the guys who went away dented us a little bit. We didn’t play good enough collectively. We couldn’t come together as much as we wanted to. Today was the kind of game we wanted to play more when the bowlers and batters both come together,” the skipper said.

Regarding his future position in the batting order, Rahul remained uncertain, stating the limited T20 matches ahead. He mentioned considering team requirements and his performance for a potential reevaluation of his batting position.

“Maybe, maybe not, there’s not much T20 cricket coming up [for me] now. It depends on where I stand and what I need to do to get back in the team, I’ll think about what the team needs,” he concluded.
