Xtra Time Web Desk: Team India batter KL Rahul has started his rehabilitation. The Lucknow Super Giants injured his right thing during the IPL 2023 game against Royal Challengers Bangalore. He was ruled out of the remainder of IPL 2023 season and was also replaced from WTC Final squad.
Rahul recently underwent a successful surgery in London. He is doing well since as he shared a photo of him walking around with crutches along with his wife Athiya Shetty.
Rahul shared the news about him missing the World Test Championships Final against Australia to be played at the Oval from June 7-11. He felt absolutely gutted to be missing the WTC Final 2023 as he was expected to play as a wicketkeeper batter for India.
Ishan Kishan was named as a replacement for Rahul for the WTC Final.
Rahul expressed his frustration in a social media post after he was forced to miss the WTC Final.
“Absolutely gutted that I won’t be at the Oval next month with Team India. I’ll do everything I can to get back in the blue and help my country. That has always been my focus and priority. After careful consideration and consultation with the medical team, it’s been concluded that I’ll be undergoing surgery on my thigh shortly. My focus will be on my rehabilitation and recovery in the coming weeks. It’s a tough call to make, but I know it’s the right one to ensure a full recovery,” the 31-year-old posted on social media.
