New Delhi: Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Shreyas Iyer won the toss and opted to bowl first after winning the toss in the 53rd match of Indian Premier League (IPL) IPL 2022 being played between Lucknow Super Giants and Kolkata Knight Riders at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. Lucknow skipper KL Rahul has been in superb form with the bat this season. Unfortunately, the star batter was dismissed for a ‘diamond duck‘ against Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday.

KL Rahul was sent back to the pavilion for zero runs, without playing a single delivery, courtesy of a fiery direct throw from KKR captain Shreyas Iyer in the very first over.  After being dismissed for a diamond duck, Rahul has equaled an unwanted record of former Indian opener and LSG mentor Gautam Gambhir.

KL Rahul has become the second Indian opener in Indian Premier League (IPL) history to be dismissed for a diamond duck in the IPL. Before him, Gautam Gambhir was dismissed for a diamond duck against Delhi in 2013.

KL Rahul is currently the second-highest run-scorer in IPL 2022 with 451 runs. Tonight, the LSG skipper had an opportunity to get close to the top-ranked Jos Buttler (618) but missed due to on-field confusion between him and his partner De Kock, resulting in a run-out.

Earlier this season, KL Rahul was dismissed for golden ducks against Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals before being dismissed for a diamond duck in tonight’s match against KKR.
