Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) shared a heartfelt one-line post for their skipper KL Rahul after getting dropped from the India squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024, slated to take place in the West Indies and the USA on June 1.

The BCCI announced the 15-member squad and four travelling reserves that will be on the flight to the USA and West Indies for the showpiece event. Rohit Sharma will be leading the team while Hardik Pandya was appointed as vice-captain for the tournament.

Sanju Samson, Rishabh Pant, Shivam Dube, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Axar Patel and Arshdeep Singh are among the players who have been included in the main squad for the T20 World Cup 2024.

However, KL Rahul has been excluded from the squad despite being the regular member of the Indian team. Since BCCI went with Samson and Pant as the wicketkeepers, Rahul couldn't find the spot in the squad.

After the India squad announcement, LSG shared a heartfelt post for KL Rahul with a caption, 'Our No.1 Since Day Zero'.

KL Rahul has been consistently performing well and exceptional behind the wickets for Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2024 but, still he missed out his place in the 15-member squad.

The 31-year-old was part of the India squad in the last two editions of the T20 World Cup (2021 and 2022). In the T20 World Cup 2022, Rahul had a disapponting campaign as he managed to score 128 runs, including two fifties, at an average of 21.33 and a strike rate of 120.75 in six matches.

KL Rahul is leading run-scorer for LSG in IPL 2024

Lucknow Super Giants skipper KL Rahul has been impressive not just in batting but in captaincy as well in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Rahul is the leading run-scorer for LSG in IPL 2024 as he has amassed 378 runs, including three fifties, at an average of 42.00 and at a strike rate of 144.27. KL Rahul is playing his first professional tournament after being on the sidelines due to injury, which led him to be ruled out of the Test series against England.

After being excluded from the T20 World Cup squad, KL Rahul will be looking to perform well in the remaining matches of the IPL 2024 to prove the selectors wrong.
