After so much hype and expectation, India finally locked horns with Pakistan in the ICC World Cup 2019 yesterday. The entire world came to standstill to watch the game of the century. However, all these hypes and build-up ended up in anticlimax manner. It was literally a one-sided affair all the way. There was huge pressure on both Indian and Pakistani players, but India handled it pretty well and emerged the winner.
After winning the toss, Pakistani skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed asked India to bat. In the absence of injured Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul opened the innings with Rohit Sharma. Initially, a couple of a mix-up during running between the wickets did worry fans. But everything calmed down as the game progressed. KL Rahul played an outstanding inning and set a perfect platform for other batsmen to express themselves. Rahul looked calm and composed looking to register a century. However, it didn’t happen, as he got out of 57 runs.
Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen took to micro-blogging platform Twitter to heaps praise on KL Rahul saying he loved KL. His tweet reads, “I 💙 KL Rahul”.
I 💙 KL Rahul

However, KL Rahul got out soon after KP’s Tweet. Netizens soon started trolling former English batsman for jinxing Rahul. Look at the reactions down below:
