KL Rahul has had a string of bad performances of late. He had a bad outing during India vs England a couple of months ago and he could not score during the home series against the Windies as well. In the T20I home series against the Windies KL Rahul could only make 59 runs. His bad performance continued against Australia as he got out on 13 runs off 12 balls. KL Rahul walked to bat ahead of Virat Kohli and his first innings were short-lived.  He hit one four in 12 balls and was sent packing by Adam Zampa after he bowled a googly. Rohit Sharma TROLLS Hardik Pandya Over Fashion Sense; KL Rahul Asks the All-Rounder to Grow Up on his 25th Birthday!

“KL Rahul has spent more time on photo shoots than on the pitch 🏏🏏🔥🔥 Whaddda player 🙏🏽🙏🏽 #AusvInd,” wrote a netizen.

“Sending #KLRahul before himself is one of the many mistakes #Kohli makes, which he covers up with his individual performance, but when the personal achievements dry up, such mistakes appear starker. #AUSvIND,” a netizen wrote.

Talking about the match, India lost the game by four runs. Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma gave a good start to India but wickets kept falling and with this, Australia gets a 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series.
