KL Rahul's underwhelming performance in India's third T20 World Cup match made fans furious. Rahul has not been able to score in all the three matches so far. In the match on Sunday, he was dismissed by Lungi Ngidi after scoring just 9 runs off 14 deliveries. 

In the previous two matches too, the 30-year-old opener didn't manage to add descent runs from his bat.
