“Brainless from LKO”, Twitter nods in agreement with Venkatesh Prasad as he lambasted KL Rahul for a slow knock against GT

KL Rahul botches up an easy chase in the face of pressure

In probably one of the biggest turnarounds of cricket in the antiquity of IPL, Gujarat Titans walked away with the bragging rights from the very jaws of defeat. In a game that had nothing but a domination of the bowlers, former Indian fast bowler, Venkatesh Prasad was terribly disappointed at KL Rahul for missing out what felt like an opportunity of the lifetime to secure a comfortable win against the Gujarat Titans.

Batting first, the Titans were in some early trouble as they lost the likes of Shubman Gill for a silver duck. However, the equation changed completely as their skipper, Hardik Pandya and Wriddimaan Saha started with the rebuilding, knitting together a 68 runs stand. Unfortunately, Saha’s departure opened the floodgates for a miraculous turnaround by the Giants and the Titans found themselves struggling.

Krunal Pandya and Marcus Stoinis were the stars of the show as the bagged four wickets between them and the Titans were teetering along the fringes of madness with a mediocre total of 135.

However, the game changed towards the end when Lucknow Super Giants took an eternity to get off their leash and by the time they could, they were being dominated mercilessly by the Titans. Mohit Sharma claimed 2 for 17 while Noor Ahmad stunned everyone with figures of 2 for 18. Rashid Khan bagged in a crucial wicket to drop the final nail on the coffin of LSG.
