Since his return from injury KL Rahul has struggled to gain any sort of form. Rahul's poor form with the bat in the ongoing T20 World Cup continued after the opener was dismissed for just 9 runs.
Rahul is yet to score in double-digits after opening the batting in three matches for Team India.
Earlier captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat first against South Africa but it didn’t turn out the way he expected. Wayne Parnel bowled a top-class first over where Rahul failed to score any and ended in a maiden.
After a couple of tidy overs, Team India openers tried to take on the bowlers as both Rohit and Rahul hit a six each. However, Ngidi ripped through their plan before they could lay foot on the pedal as he first dismissed skipper Rohit for 15 as he attempted the pull shot but wasn’t able to time it well and got caught by the bowler itself.
Soon after Rahul's wicket, #KLOL started trending on Twitter as people started doubting KL Rahul selection in team India for the T20 World Cup.
