CricketLSG owner Sanjiv Goenka lashes out at KL Rahul after SRH defeat

Srinagar: A video has gone viral on social media in which Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) owner Sanjiv Goenka is seen upset and agitated at LSG captain KL Rahul after Sunrisers Hyderabad outclassed them in the IPL 2024 match on Wednesday.
In the match match played opening duo of Sunrisers chased down target within 10 overs to set a new record.

The 10 wicket crushing defeat has not only dealt a blow to their morale but also jeopardised their chances of qualifying for the playoffs.

Rahul seemed noticeably deflated, further exacerbated by what appeared to be a rebuke from team Goenka.

The franchise owner engaged in an animated discussion with the team captain, indicating his dissatisfaction with certain aspects.

In a widely circulated video online, Goenka can be seen lashing out at KL Rahul. Despite this, the LSG skipper maintained his composure and remained composed.

Earlier LSG chose to bat first, posted a modest total of 165 runs. Initially faltering at 66/4, they were rescued by Nicholas Pooran (48) and Ayush Badoni (55), whose unbeaten 99-run partnership salvaged their innings.

Later, LSG failed to apply pressure on Sunrisers Hyderabad with the ball, struggling to contain Abhishek Sharma (75) and Travis Head (89).

The duo wreaked havoc on the opposition’s bowling lineup, effortlessly chasing down the target within overs.

Meanwhile, Rahul expressed his dismay over the defeat against SRH. He conceded that he was at a loss for words witnessing the batting display by Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma.

“Am lost for words. We have watched that kind of batting on TV. But this is unreal batting. Everything seemed to find the middle of the bat. Kudos to their skills. They have worked hard on their six hitting skills. They didn’t give us a chance to know what the pitch played in the second innings. Was hard to stop them as they teed off from ball one.”
