Ton or none: Twiteratti have field day as KL Rahul flops on Day 1 of 3rd Test
Like Rohit Sharma, opening batsman KL Rahul too seems to have captured the imagination of social media sites and Twitter in particular as and when he takes to the field.
New Delhi: Like Rohit Sharma, opening batsman KL Rahul too seems to have captured the imagination of social media sites and Twitter in particular as and when he takes to the field.
The Karnataka batsman's scores represent an interesting pattern.
Though Rahul has already registered two tons in his career that is just four Tests old, other scores of the 23-year-old read 3, 1, 16, 7, 6, 5, 2 and 2.
From the evidence offered by his numbers, it is not very hard to guage that there is no middle ground when it comes to Rahul.
He performs on either extreme of the performance scale.
On being bowled by Prasad on the 2nd ball of the day in the 3rd Test, Twitter users on Thursday decided to have a bit of fun at the expense of Rahul.
KL Rahul is turning out to be the Marcus North/Shaun Marsh of BCCI. Ton or none.
