New Delhi, KL Rahul is out of this season of IPL. He has a problem in his thigh. At present he will go to NCA. They will be scanned soon. Due to which the full seriousness of the injury will be known. chennai superkings When this news came a little before the match against, the first concern was about their franchise. The Lucknow team was moving towards the playoffs, at such a time this news is disturbing. But this news is going to bother Team India more than Lucknow. This is because from June 7, India has to play the final of the World Test Championship against Australia. This match is to be played at The Oval.
KL Rahul was part of Team India in the World Test Championship. It was hotly discussed that he would bat in the middle order and simultaneously play the role of wicketkeeper. But now there is little chance that he will be available for selection in that high profile final match. Looking at these circumstances, now the question is whether in the last match he was negligent by taking the decision to come out for batting even after injury?

Why did you take the risk in the last match?
Lucknow’s last match was with Royal Challengers Bangalore. Remind you that in this match Lucknow had a target of only 127 runs. KL Rahul was hurt. Despite this, he came to the field to bat at number 11. By that time the game was almost out of Lucknow’s hands. Lucknow needed 24 runs off 8 balls. In the kind of pain KL Rahul was in, the possibility of such fast batting was negligible. Despite this, he came to bat.
He could have scored runs on the first shot he played. But the body was not allowing to run. He stayed at the crease on the last balls of the 19th over but could not score runs. 23 runs were needed in the last over. Amit Mishra was at the crease. He could not do this feat. Lucknow had to face defeat. But now the question is arising that what was the need for KL Rahul to come to bat? Did he go to the crease just because the strike rate of the team could be improved. If he had hit one or two fours, the strike rate of the team would have been better. However, this greed made for the franchise has now affected Team India.
KL Rahul had just returned from injury
Just last year in June, he had a sports hernia operation. He had undergone surgery in Germany. He himself knew about this operation. KL Rahul returns to Team India after surgery. But questions arose about his form in the Test series against Australia. He had to sit out of the team after the Delhi Test.
KL Rahul’s form was being discussed so much that former cricketers Akash Chopra and Venkatesh Prasad clashed on social media. Well, about that clash some other time. Mentioning that injury just because when last year was hit by injury, could he have been refused to bat at number 11 in the last match. Which he didn’t do.
Many important players are already unfit
KL Rahul’s injury is a big danger bell in this sense because many key players of the team are already unfit. Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant are three such players who, if they were fit, the strength of Team India would have been different. KL Rahul’s name has now been added to this list. His injury is increasing the concern because the IPL matches are yet to be played for about four more weeks. If any other unpleasant news comes, Team India will be on the back foot even before entering the field.
