The India vs Pakistan match is usually viewed as a battle between Indian batters and Pakistani bowlers. This time the Indian team was put under pressure from the first over itself, as KL Rahul, who has scored 500+ runs in four consecutive seasons of the IPL, was out in the first over and without scoring a run.

The opening-batter KL Rahul had a disastrous return to T20I cricket, scoring a golden duck during India’s chase of 148 against arch-rivals Pakistan in Dubai on Sunday (August 28).

Facing Naseem Shah, Rahul sliced the ball onto his stumps, giving Pakistan the start they needed after failing to record the score they would have liked.

KL Rahul, who made his comeback after 4 months during the just-finished ODI series against Zimbabwe, was anticipated to deliver big on this platform, but as soon as he was out, enraged netizens took to social media to express their displeasure. Take a look at some of the reactions.

“What a looser KL Rahul, in every high-pressure match he scores “0”.pathetic performer,” tweeted a fan

A fan tweeted, “I’ve never rated K L Rahul, nor see any reason to do so anytime soon. One of the most overrated players going. Was once a promising talent but let IPL money go to his head. Result is 100% mediocrity. And you want this moron to be India Captain?!’

A fan tweeted, “KL Rahul is Biggest Fraud in Indian Cricket.”
