KL Rahul, captain of the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), was once again seen engaged in a public conversation with team owner Sanjiv Goenka, following LSG's defeat to the Delhi Capitals and their subsequent elimination from the IPL 2024 playoffs. The nature of their conversation this time around remains unknown. This comes just weeks after a similar exchange between the two, captured on video after LSG's loss to the Sunrisers Hyderabad, went viral and sparked controversy.
Later on, in an attempt to mend fences, Goenka hosted Rahul for dinner at his residence in Delhi. The duo reportedly shared a warm hug as well.
LSG's underwhelming performance throughout the season, coupled with Rahul's own batting struggles, has cast a shadow over his captaincy. Earlier, PTI reported that KL Rahul could step down as the captain but it hasn't happened yet. He looks all but set to lead the team against DC.
There have also been reports that LSG will not retain Rahul for the next season, but LSG's assistant coach, Lance Klusenar, dismissed those as rumours.
Klusenar had also spoken on the video clip showing Goenka scolding Rahul following LSG's loss to Hyderabad.
"I see no problem in a robust discussion between two cricket lovers. For us, it is a storm in a teacup. It's not a big thing for us," he said.
Meanwhile, after the game against DC, Rahul himself analysed the LSG's performance and said, "We did well at the back end and 200 was a par total, we should have chased it down. This has been a problem right through the season - we keep losing a lot of wickets in the powerplay, we never get a solid start to get the likes of Stoinis and Pooran in, that is the big reason why we are in this position."
