"There is a five-day gap before the next game against DC. As of now, no decision has been taken but it is understood that if Rahul plans to just concentrate on his batting for the remaining two games, the management won't mind," an IPL source had told PTI. Goenka's animated gestures and Rahul's helpless stand had triggered massive hate against the LSG owner. However, if reports are anything to go by, the two have let bygone be bygones.

All rumours

"It's all rumours that Rahul will be displaced from the captaincy and won't be picked in the auction. The last match didn't go our way, but everything is fine now between the team and owners. Rahul is in good space and taking rest before the game against DC," sources close to LSG told IANS. There were also some reports claiming that Goenka had apologised to Rahul after facing massive backlash on social media.
