India vs England: Cricket fans lambast ‘minnow basher’ KL Rahul, slam Rohit’s performance in T20 WC | T20 World Cup 2022

The second semifinal of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 is currently being played in Adelaide between India and England. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma lost the toss and has been asked to bat first by his counterpart Jos Buttler. Rohit revealed at the toss that they have made no changes to the playing XI from their previous game against Zimbabwe. Rishabh Pant is playing in place of Dinesh Karthik as the primary wicketkeeper-batsman. 

IND vs ENG: KL Rahul slammed for another poor performance

Meanwhile, India lost an early wicket in the form of KL Rahul, who has been dismissed by Chris Woakes for 5 off 5 balls. Netizens are trolling Rahul for only scoring fifties against relatively weaker sides in the competition and not doing anything when it comes to playing against big teams in crunch situations. Here’s a compilation of tweets trolling India opener KL Rahul.
