Correct Answer : Option (A) - KL Rahul

Note : Lucknow Super Giants kick off their maiden IPL campaign on Monday(28th Mar 2022) against fellow newcomers Gujarat Titans and all eyes will be on captain "KL Rahul" as well as his buddy and counterpart Hardik Pandya. Rahul has been the most prolific run-getter in IPL over the past three seasons but all the campaigns had ended in heartbreak as his performance was not enough to power his former franchise Punjab Kings to the play-offs. It's a fresh start for Rahul and he would like to repay the faith shown in him by the LSG management by getting the team off to a good start.

 
While Rahul has been excellent in terms of batting deep and playing the anchor for the past few seasons, there is one stat that he would want to change. Rahul is the batter with most number of dot balls played  in IPL during the powerplay phase from the 2019 season. Off the 661 deliveries he has faced in the powerplay since 2019, Rahul has played a total of 295 dots, which puts him on top of the list..
