After being out of action for a considerable long spell, KL Rahul was selected for the India A squad for the final three ODIs of the five-match series against England Lions, and it was hoped that the 26-year-old opening batsman would put his critics to sleep.
However, that didn’t work out for KL Rahul as he proved to be ineffective and failed to contribute to the India A team. In the 3rd ODI, he scored a meagre 13, got a bit better with 42 runs in the 4th ODI, but then failed miserably in the 5th ODI with a golden duck in the first ball of the match.
India A lost the final ODI by a thin margin of 1 wicket, and although they bagged the series 4-1, it didn’t stop the Indian fans from throwing fireballs at KL Rahul on social media. Here are some of the top reactions from Twitter to KL’s golden duck in the 5th ODI on Thursday.
