KL Rahul had a disastrous start to his Test series against West Indies with the bat. Rahul was forced to walk back for a duck in the opening Test at Rajkot. If that wasn't enough, Rahul made it worse by taking a review on what appeared to be a clear decision.
Shannon Gabriel trapped Rahul in front of the wickets in the first delivery of his first over. Rahul had nothing on his scorecard. However, it's not something which got him under fire, but a desperate attempt to save himself irked the fans on Twitter.
Well, this is not the first time the Indian opener has wasted a review in an attempt to save himself from a plumb LBW call.
Recently, in the Asia Cup 2018, Rahul had used review for fun but that ended up costing two of his teammates. MS Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik were given out on a wrong call and DRS at that time would have saved their wicket.
Even Rahul admitted after the game that he should not have wasted the review.
Here is how the Twitterati reacted to Rahul's decision to go for a DRS:
KL Rahul should be banned from taking a review????????#INDvWI— shreyas ghule (@shreyasghule) October 4, 2018

Get out to inswinging delivery
Waste a review
KL Rahul invariably wastes a review everytime he's been given out LBW early on in his innings! He needs to accept the fact he's plumb in front and get out of there!! #INDvWI— Gaurav P (@GauravPrabhak) October 4, 2018
