New Delhi: In what comes as a massive blow to LSG, KL Rahul has been ruled out of the IPL, as per a report in Cricbuzz. Rahul picked up an injury during the LSG vs RCB game. It is also being reported that Kl Rahul will miss the upcoming WTC final against Australia. Rahul went to Mumbai for scans and the matter has been taken up by the BCCI.
“The results of the scans will determine Rahul’s participation in the World Test Championship (WTC) final in London early next month. The National Cricket Academy (NCA) team, which monitors his treatment, has not informed the concerned, including the team management as of Thursday night but those who know the situation are not exactly optimistic. In all probability, Rahul will be out of the WTC final too,” read a report in Cricbuzz.
There are a lot of speculations regarding the extent and nature of Rahul’s injury as neither BCCI nor LSG has given any official statement about it. Rumours are doing rounds that Rahul could be suffering from a hip or a hamstring injury.
As for LSG, they are yet to decide if they need a replacement for KL Rahul or not. In Rahul’s absence, Krunal Pandya is leading the team. The report further states that Ishan Kishan could be in line to replace Rahul if he misses out on the WTC final. Meanwhile, there is not a lot of clarity on Jaydev Unadkat and BCCI is waiting for a clear update on his injury.
