There has been a massive outrage among fans and experts following Lucknow Super Giants owner Sanjiv Goenka’s outburst on skipper KL Rahul following the team’s heavy loss against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2024. LSG were completely outplayed by SRH as Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma produced brilliant batting performances to chase down the 166-run target in just 9.4 overs. After the match, Goenka was caught on camera having a heated conversation with KL Rahul and head coach Justin Langer. Fans and experts were not happy with the LSG owner’s behaviour after the match and they took to social media to show their support for Rahul.

Meanwhile, Goenka has restricted his followers from commenting on his Instagram posts amid the growing controversy surrounding the incident.

Meanwhile, reports claimed that there can be some question marks over KL Rahul’s captaincy.

“There is a five-day gap before the next game against DC. As of now, no decision has been taken but it is understood that if Rahul plans to just concentrate on his batting for the remaining two games, the management won’t mind,” an IPL source told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

Earlier, Indian cricket team fast bowler Mohammed Shami had his say on the matter.

“Crores of people are watching you and learning from you. If these things happen in front of cameras, and you see such reactions on screen, it’s shameful,” Shami said on ‘Cricbuzz Live’.

Aapka ek dayra hona chahiye baat karne ka, yeh message bahut galat jaata hai. (You should have boundaries, there’s a way to talk. This sends a very wrong message).”

Shami also said that the conversation should have taken place inside the dressing room.

“It’s very important to note that players have respect, and you are a respectful person too, as an owner. It’s not that you’re talking suddenly,” Shami said.

“If you have to do that, there are many different ways. You could’ve done the same thing in the dressing room or the hotel. It wasn’t necessary to do it on the field. Aise reaction de ke koi lal quile pe jhanda toh gaad nahi diya aapne (you didn’t hoist a flag on Red Fort by doing what you did).”
