KL Rahul not giving enough support from other co-players in Punjab Kings. According to Gautam Gambhir. He believes that KL Rahul should not be affected. By the lack of support from his fellow Punjab Kings batsmen players. KL Rahul is the IPL’s highest run-scorer since 2018. Rahul is currently at the second spot on the list of top run-getters in the Indian Premier League 2021.
KL Rahul has 331 runs to his name. Despite missing the Punjab Kings’ last match due to acute appendicitis. Also. during a dialogue on the Star Sports show Game Plan. Gautam Gambhir was asked if KL Rahul has not received enough support. And if that has hurt the Punjab Kings over the last seasons of IPL 2021.
“That’s not his problem. Other people need to contribute. But he also needs to go there and play freely as well. You can’t just keep thinking about what other players are doing,” Gautam Gambhir said.
The previous India cricketer highlighted that KL Rahul’s preservationist approach. He would affect his side even more unfavorably.
“You have got the game to bat a strike rate of probably 170-180 and suddenly, because the other players are not performing, you get that strike rate down to about 120-130, that’s going to actually affect the team even more,” Gambhir said.

KL Rahul has scored his runs. At a strike rate of 136.21 so far this season. Rahul was even more cautious in the Indian Premier League 2020. Also, with his season-high 670 runs coming at a strike rate of 129.34.
“KL Rahul has got the ability to probably get a 40-ball hundred,” Gautam Gambhir said.
In conclusion, KL Rahul will certainly hope to be at the top of his game. Within the second phase of Indian Premier League 2021. The Punjab Kings are currently set 6th in the points table. They will need their captain to rise to the event for them to qualify for the playoffs.
