Athiya Shetty is being blamed for her boyfriend KL Rahul’s poor performance at the World Cup on November 10, 2022.

Team India crashed out of the championship after losing to England.

Netizens, who are upset, are showing their disappointment on the internet.

Many have blamed Athiya Shetty for KL Rahul’s performance.

KL Rahul hardly made any runs after getting off to a fantastic start by hitting a four on the first ball.

However, he could not continue as he was dismissed by England’s Chris Woakes in the second over of the game on five.

KL Rahul struggled with the form in the first three matches of the T20 World Cup but he bounced back with back-to-back fifties against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.

In the semi-final, he failed to give India a big start.

Fans were disappointed with KL Rahul’s form, and have been brutally trolling him on social media demanding his dismissal from the finals if India qualifies.

It is not just KL Rahul facing the netizens’ wrath.

His actress-girlfriend Athiya Shetty, too, has been dragged into this and is being trolled.

One netizen tweeted: “@klrahul Bhai you step down from cricket and focus on Athiya Shetty…”

Another user wrote: “At this point, I’d say Athiya Shetty is way more talented than KL Rahul. #T20Iworldcup2022”

A tweet from another read: “Kl Rahul and Athiya Shetty Career are same #INDvsENG #T20Iworldcup2022 #KLRahul #ViratKohli”

Many memes have also been doing the rounds on social media.

Athiya and Rahul, who have remained silent about their relationship status, often surprise fans with their cute PDA.

There have been rumours about Athiya and Rahul’s wedding ever since they made their relationship official.

Suniel Shetty, Athiya’s father, earlier commented on the wedding plans and said that they were aware of KL Rahul’s busy schedule and didn’t want to put any pressure on the children.

It is not the first time a cricketer’s wife or girlfriend is being trolled for her husband or boyfriend’s performance on the field.

Many, including Anushka Sharma, Natasa Stankovic, and Dhanashree Verma have faced the same in the past.

Meanwhile, Athiya Shetty’s pictures dining with KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Rahul Dravid have surfaced on different platforms.

The duo is seen looking deep into each other’s eyes while interacting.

Meanwhile, Kohli and Dravid are seen sitting on the opposite of the two.

However, heartbroken netizens took a dig at the cricketers as they were enjoying their lavish dinner after the huge defeat.

One user wrote: “Bhai plz shadi karke Aram se honeymoon jao….. Aram Karo 3 months.”

Another commented: “Thoda khel bhi leta to sayad India Jeet jati (If you could have played, India would have won).”

The third user said: “Why is this guy even in the squad? Such an overrated player.”

Several others went on to use abusive language, targeting his poor performance on the field.
