IPL2022: KL Rahul gives THIS reason for defeat in Eliminator against RCB


The debutant of Indian Premier League 2022, Lucknow Super Giants are knocked out of the tournament after Royal Challengers Bangalore mark 14 runs win on Wednesday at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. 

KL Rahul’s LSG gave a brilliant performance throughout the tournament and excellently chase the 208 runs target set by RCB but could not get through the army of Plessis.

Captain Rahul reckoned that dropping easy catches against RC in the IPL Eliminator cost them the crucial match. “I think it’s quite obvious – the reasons why we didn’t win. We let ourselves down in the field. Dropping easy catches never helps. The difference was obviously Patidar playing such a knock. When someone in the top three scores a hundred, more often the team wins. They fielded really well and we were poor,” said KL Rahul in a post-match presentation.

“We’ll take back a lot of positives. It’s a new franchise. We’ve made a lot of mistakes, every team does that. Have to try and come back stronger. It’s a young team. They’ll learn from their mistakes, go back home and try and be better players,” said Rahul.

LSG skipper also reserved special praise for pacer Mohsin Khan who has was the lone star with the ball against RCB in the Eliminator.

“Mohsin showed everybody how good he is and what skills he possesses. As he grows with confidence, he’ll be able to clock speeds which are much higher. He will learn and develop a few more skills hopefully by next season,” he added.

With the win, RCB will play against Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 2 at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on Friday for a place in the final against Gujarat Titans.
