Team India cricketer, KL Rahul was at the receiving end of all the trolls after his poor effort on the field during the first T20I game against the Windies in Kolkata.

Meanwhile, the Men in Blues restricted the visitors to 109 for eight at the end of 20th over. Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of the bowlers who bagged three wickets giving away only 14 runs. He rattled the middle order dismissing Darren Bravo, Rovman Powell, and Windies skipper, Carlos Brathwaite.

Although India impressed with the ball, their fielding was not upto the mark. KL Rahul made some embarrassing mistakes on the field. In the fourth over of the Windies innings, Shai Hope tried to flick Khaleel Ahmed off the backfoot. Meanwhile, Hope decided to steal a single but managed to hit it straight to Rahul at the short mid-wicket.

Manish Pandey affected a run-out in the first T20I.

At first, he tried to take a single and then stopped in the mid-way and then set off again. There was some confusion between Hope and Shimron Hetmyer which resulted in Hetmyer and him getting stranded at the non-striker’s end. Meanwhile, KL Rahul had the simplest of jobs of grabbing the ball and throw it back to the wicket-keeper, Dinesh Karthik.

However, he shockingly threw the ball over Kathiks’s head, but it was lucky for India that Manish Pandey was standing behind Karthik and he managed to take the bails off, much to the relief of KL Rahul.
