Lucknow Super Giants owner Sanjiv Goenka on Monday hosted team captain KL Rahul for dinner at his residence in Delhi where they both hugged each other as well.

Goenka has been receiving a lot of backlash from fans and cricket pundits for lashing out at Rahul in full view of television cameras after LSG's crushing defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad last week.

A clip of Goenka scolding a dejected looking Rahul went viral on social media.

Rahul's future at LSG in doubt?

Rahul's visit to Goenka's house comes amid rumours of him stepping down from captaincy for the final two games after getting the scolding from Goenka.

The video had also raised questions on the dressing room atmosphere and Rahul's future with the franchise.

But the businessman seems to be on the road to mend his ways after the incident created a furore in the Indian cricket fraternity and therefore, had a one-on-one meet with Rahul over dinner.

Rahul's recent form slump has not only resulted in his exclusion from India's T20 squad but has also left Lucknow Super Giants languishing in seventh place with 12 points, trailing behind Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals, positioned fifth and sixth respectively.

The absence of speedster Mayank Yadav due to injury has created a significant void, which Yash Thakur and Naveen-ul-Haq have struggled to fill. Furthermore, Mohsin Khan's injury setback has sidelined him from the last match.

With slim chances of making it to the playoffs, LSG may opt to utilize Rahul solely as a specialist opening batsman in their upcoming fixtures against Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians.

LSG are set to clash with Delhi at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on May 14, followed by their final match of IPL 2024 against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede Stadium on May 17.
