New Delhi: Now only 2 matches are left for IPL 2021 to end. CSK’s team has already confirmed its place in the final match. On the other hand, the team of KKR and Delhi are going to meet in the second qualifier on Wednesday. This season’s Orange Cap is occupied by Punjab Kings captain KL Rahul. Rahul may not have been able to take his team to the last stage, but his bat showed amazing performance like every year.
Rahul will leave Punjab’s side
But now the news has come that KL Rahul will not play with Punjab Kings next year. With this, Punjab will get a new captain after a long time. In fact, a report by Cricbuzz has revealed that KL Rahul will not be a part of Punjab Kings next year and his name will also be auctioned in the mega auction next year. It has also been learned in the report that some other teams have also spoken directly to add Rahul to their team.
KL Rahul’s bat rocked the IPL this year as well. His bat has scored 626 runs in 13 matches this season at an average of 62.6. He still has the Orange Cap of this season intact. However, Rahul is currently under threat from CSK batsman Rituraj Gaikwad, who will play the final match for CSK. But still Rahul’s bat has rained heavily this year too.
More than 500 runs in every season
KL Rahul has scored more than 500 runs in every season for Punjab. He was associated with this team from 2018 and since then every season Rahul has scored a lot of runs. Rahul has scored 659 runs in 2018, 593 runs in IPL 2019, 670 runs in the 2020 season and 626 runs this year too. But he could not even take his team to the playoffs even once.
Can become the captain of this team
Virat Kohli has also left the captaincy of RCB in IPL. This was Virat’s last match while captaining RCB. In such a situation, for the next season, RCB would like to include KL Rahul in their team once. If this happens, then Rahul will be the biggest contender to become the new captain of RCB. Virat Kohli wanted him to leave the captaincy in the IPL with the IPL trophy, but it did not happen and he would have to wait again.
