Disappointment turned into controversy after Lucknow Super Giants’ (LSG) crushing defeat at the hands Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Wednesday night. While the 10-wicket loss itself was a bitter pill to swallow for LSG fans, what truly grabbed headlines was a video circulating on social media. The clip showed LSG owner Sanjeev Goenka engaged in a heated conversation with skipper KL Rahul after the match.

Cameras Capture Tense Exchange

Following the one-sided defeat, cameras captured Goenka visibly upset in the stands, having a seemingly animated conversation with Rahul. Reports suggest Goenka was not happy with certain on-field decisions made by the captain during the match. The public nature of the exchange left many fans questioning Goenka’s approach.

Netizens Express Disapproval

The video sparked outrage on social media, with many netizens criticizing Goenka for publicly reprimanding Rahul.

Critics argued that such a display of anger undermined team morale and should have been handled privately. Some comments pointed out that public criticism could potentially dent Rahul’s confidence, especially with crucial matches remaining in the IPL 2024 season.

While some fans acknowledged Goenka’s right to be disappointed with the performance, the overwhelming sentiment online called for a more professional approach. Several comments urged Goenka to address the team’s shortcomings internally and maintain a united front publicly.

Here are the reactions of fans:

LSG owner Sanjiv Goenka behaved disrespectfully with KL Rahul after LSG lost badly. Goenka forgot the spirit of the game. No owner has ever behaved so disrespectfully even after a big loss. #SRHvLSG #KLRahul pic.twitter.com/rtAx8paeVG

KL Rahul appears to be a corporate majdoor meeting with his Boss Goenka for an appraisal.

This is unacceptable behaviour 😡#KLRahul #SRHvLSG #SRHvsLSG pic.twitter.com/twyNVnTOGn

After this public spat under cameras, I’m sure that KL Rahul is leaving LSG next year. Fine big money’s riding in IPL and understand the frustration as an owner but it speaks volumes about Sanjiv Goenka as a boss!!

Highly unprofessional and undignified behaviour by LSG owner Goenka towards captain #KLRahul. There are dignified way to express criticism and unhappiness. #TravisHead is in completely different mode, no one can stop him. 🙂🙂#SRHvsLSG #LSGvsSRH

Money can’t teach you Manners.

Leaders compliment in public and criticize in private.

Unprofessional and unacceptable behaviour of #Goenka with #KLRahul

Just imagine the level of humiliation and embarassment his employees must be facing. #SRHvLSG

The body language of LSG owner Sanjeev Goenka was awful during his post-match conversation with KL Rahul. Disappointment after a loss like that is obvious, but owners should never do this in public view with cameras all around. KL didn’t have a great day, but I feel for him here. pic.twitter.com/ycZfzjMrvY
