New Delhi: Lucknow Super Giants had to face defeat at their home in IPL-2023 on Monday. He was defeated by Royal Challengers Bangalore by 18 runs in a thrilling match. In this match, KL Rahul was injured while fielding. That is why he did not come to open. Rahul came down to bat at number 11. But the question is, why did Rahul come out to bat?
Rahul came to bat on the fourth ball of the 19th over. He played three balls and did not score a single run. He was not able to run nor was he able to move his leg properly. When the situation was like this, Rahul could have rested but he chose to come on the field. Now the question here is whether the country is important for Rahul or the IPL team.

Rahul’s arrival did not help
The team was not going to get any benefit from Rahul’s arrival. It was clear from the way he was batting that it was becoming difficult for him to stand. When he came on the field, Lucknow needed 24 runs off eight balls to win. Rahul was not in a position to score runs so fast. On the other hand, if there is a thought that the batsman standing at the other end can score runs, then Amit Mishra was in front.
It is very difficult even for Amit Mishra to score 24 runs in eight balls. Only a miracle can do this. In such a situation, Rahul’s arrival and batting could have deepened his injury, due to which Team India could have been in trouble.

Part of the World Test Championship
This was dangerous from the point of view of Team India because Rahul is part of the team selected for the final of the ICC World Test Championship to be held in June. It is decided to play in his playing-11. In such a situation, Rahul’s going out to bat ignoring his injury is a matter of concern for Team India, because if he gets hurt more while batting or his injury increases, then it would not be a good thing for India.
Team India cannot afford the injury of a player like Rahul at this time. Some of his important players are injured, including the names of Jaspreet Bumrah, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer. In such a situation, Rahul’s injury can shock Team India. It will be expected that Rahul’s injury is more serious and he gets fit soon.

BCCI is serious
Anyway, BCCI is very concerned about the injury of its players. The Indian board does not want its players to carry much weight in the IPL. Before the start of IPL, it was told in some media reports that BCCI had talked to IPL franchises about the workload management of Team India players and said that it should be taken care of.
In such a situation, when the Indian board is so serious, then how can Rahul take such a risk. It will be expected that Rahul’s injury is more serious and he gets fit soon.
