The Lucknow Super Giants were in a unique firefight mode after the infamous on-field episode between captain KL Rahul and co-owner Sanjeev Goenka. The lively conversations between the two after the game against Sunrisers Hyderabad created quite a stir on social media and gave rise to many theories. Even LSG assistant coach Lance Klusener had to explain the conversation between captain Rahul and franchise owner Goenka in the press conference before the Delhi Capitals game. While Klusener called it a “robust discussion” between “two cricket lovers”, Rahul’s wife Athiya Shetty’s post has triggered a new “storm”.

In a cryptic post, Athiya wrote, “The calm after the storm.”

After suffering a stunning 10-wicket defeat against Sunrisers Hyderabad last week, a video of the animated discussion between Rahul and Goenka took over social media.

After the conversation between the two became public, reports surfaced that Rahul would be leaving the franchise next season. Klusener ruled out a possible fight between the two, claiming it wasn’t a “big deal” for LSG.

“I don’t see any problem in an intense discussion between two cricket lovers. For us it’s a storm in a teacup. It’s not a big deal for us,” LSG assistant coach Klusener said in the pre-game press conference on Monday ahead of their clash against DC on Tuesday.

This season, Rahul has struggled to put together quick runs in the ongoing 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) season. The veteran wicketkeeper-batsman has 460 runs to his name in 12 matches at an average of 38.33 and a strike rate of 136.09.

Despite his difficulties in executing those quick shots in the early stages of the game, Klusener feels that in his opinion Rahul has proven that he is a good player and has not played badly this season.

“It’s a long competition, it’s documented that very few batters have lasted 15 or 16 games and have played better in some phases than others. KL has proven that he has quality and I don’t think he played badly at all.” “I think we have very high expectations for him and I think he’s just a game away from being ready for us explode,” Klusener added.
