In the match against Rajasthan, Rahul was struggling to score runs against a formidable attack led by pacer Trent Boult. Seeing this, Pietersen surprisingly attacked the Lucknow Super Giants captain.

Pietersen was not impressed with Rahul’s shot selection and below average strike rate. The IPL commentator explains to the audience how poor Rahul’s performance is in the powerplay.

According to several reports, Pietersen pulled up Rahul during the IPL commentary. The former England cricketer reportedly said, “Watching KL Rahul bat is the most boring thing ever.” This statement of Pietersen is being discussed continuously after the match. There is some truth in his statement as well.

Rahul could not even open the account on the first six balls. In front of him, Trent Boult did not give a single run in the first over. Rahul could only score 19 runs in 19 balls in the powerplay. He scored 39 runs off 32 balls. During this, he hit four fours and a six.
