First-ever match of KL Rahul as a skipper of Kings XI Punjab turned out to be an absolute thriller. The game was full of twists and turns and also ‘umpiring mistakes’. KXIP were winning the match right from the beginning of the match.
In fact, even during the second innings, KXIP turned the tables with exceptional performances from Mayank Agarwal and Gowtham started taking on the bowlers and then in the last over, with just one run away from victory things changed for the worse for the Kings XI Punjab as the match ended up with a tie leading to a Super Over.
However, at the end, it was Delhi Capitals who managed to take the cake away as they got over the finishing line after the thrilling super-over. Amidst all the thrill and twists and turns, one incident has caught everyone’s attention featuring KXIP skipper KL Rahul.
Well, the ever-so calm KL Rahul was caught on the stump-mic hurling abuses at one of his teammates in Kannada. As there are a few cricketers from Karnataka in Rahul’s squad including Karun Nair, Mayank Agarwal, and Krishnappa Gowtham, seems like Rahul was giving instructions to one of these players as he hurled abuses.
Asking one of the fielders to come forward, Rahul said, “Munde baaro l*wd@”. He was also seen gesturing the same. The abuse can be heard clearly as there is hardly any noise from the squad as the IPL 2020 is being played in empty stadiums this year.

Meanwhile, in the super-over, KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran came out to bat for KXIP in the Super-Over and the responsibility of the ball was given to Kagiso Rabada by Delhi Capitals. Kagiso Rabada ended the Super Overs for KXIP in just 3 runs. All thanks to the brilliant performance by Rabada Delhi Capitals were able to beat KL Rahul-led KXIP.
