Lucknow Super Giants found themselves in a unique firefighting mode after the infamous on-field episode between skipper KL Rahul and co-owner Sanjeev Goenka. The animated chatter between the two after the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad became a big talking point on social media, giving birth to many theories. Even LSG assistant coach Lance Klusener had to explain the conversation between skipper Rahul and franchise owner Goenka in the pre-match press conference ahead of the Delhi Capitals contest. While Klusener labelled 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 enduring a staggering 10-wicket defeat to Sunrisers Hyderabad last week, a video from the animated discussion between Rahul and Goenka took over social media.

After the conversation between the two became public, reports surfaced about Rahul leaving the franchise next season. Klusener ruled out a possible dispute between the two and claimed that it is not a “big thing” for LSG.

“I see no problem in a robust discussion between two cricket lovers. For us, it is a storm in a teacup. It’s not a big thing for us,” LSG assistant coach Klusener said in the pre-match press conference on Monday ahead of their clash against DC on Tuesday.

This season, Rahul struggled to muster up runs at a quick pace under his belt in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season. The experienced wicketkeeper batter has 460 runs to his name in 12 matches at an average of 38.33 and a strike rate of 136.09.

Despite his struggles to play those quick-fire knocks in the opening phase of the game, Klusener feels that according to him Rahul has proved that he is a quality player and hasn’t played badly this season.

“It is a long competition, it has been documented that very few batters have gone through 15 or 16 games playing better at some stages than others KL has proved that he is quality and I don’t think he has played bad at all at the moment. I think we have so much high expectations from him and I think he is a game away from blowing open for us,” Klusener added.
