After KKR's defeat, KL Rahul is prepared for "tough conversations" and supports Shamar despite his lackluster debut

LSG faced their second consecutive defeat in the Indian Premier League, falling short against KKR at the Eden Gardens on Sunday, 14 February. KL Rahul, the captain of LSG, expressed the need for candid discussions within the team following their lackluster performances against DC and KKR. Identifying the top four batters as key contributors to their struggles, Rahul emphasized the importance of players anchoring their innings deeper, including himself, who scored 39 runs before getting out.

Reflecting on the match, Rahul described it as a "proper hammering" and acknowledged the challenges of digesting such defeats in cricket. He attributed the difficulties faced by the LSG side to losing wickets in clusters, creating additional pressure on the batting unit. Rahul noted that despite the initially favorable conditions, the pitch at Eden Gardens became more challenging for batting under lights, leading to missed opportunities in setting a competitive total.

In light of Shamar Joseph's debut for LSG, replacing Mayank Yadav, Rahul acknowledged the young pacer's enthusiasm but highlighted the need for improvement in consistency. Joseph's debut spell, conceding 47 runs in four overs, prompted Rahul to emphasize the importance of addressing weaknesses within the team and engaging in constructive conversations to rectify shortcomings. Despite the recent setbacks, Rahul remains optimistic about LSG's prospects but emphasizes the urgency of improving their performance, particularly in achieving higher totals.

LSG's current record stands at three wins and three losses from six matches, indicating the need for introspection and strategic adjustments to bolster their performance in the upcoming fixtures.
