India Vice-Captain KL Rahul gave a massive update on his fitness after undergoing successful surgery in Germany on Wednesday. The Karnataka lad provided good news to his fans in the form of announcing his recovery news after a successful surgery.
The reliable opener was appointed as team India’s skipper against the recently completed South Africa series before the groin injury ruled him out.
Vice-Captain Of India Thanks Fans And Supporters
KL Rahul, who is now on the road to recovery, took to his Twitter account and extended his gratitude to everyone for their support and prayers, he wrote, “Hello everyone. It’s been a tough couple of weeks but the surgery was successful. I’m healing and recovering well. My road to recovery has begun. Thank you for your messages and prayers. See you soon,”
However, due to the effect of the injury, he was unable to travel with the all-format team to the United Kingdom for the big series against England, including a one-off test.
The fifth and final test of the last year’s India versus England series will take place on 1st July.
Rahul had a brilliant show in England last year. The right-handed batter had recorded 315 runs in 4 games and remained the third-highest run-getter in the series. The kind of batter he is, the team will surely miss his presence on the side.
His recurring injuries are a major concern for the BCCI and Indian fans. The star Indian batter has missed 4 series in the last seven months with injuries.
And his absence from the important tour of England has put the team management in a complete dilemma. Team India is still looking to find a reliable replacement of Rahul for the opening slot for the Edgbaston Test.
With the skipper batter Rohit Sharma suffering from Covid-19, KL Rahul would’ve ideally been given India’s captaincy for a one-off test against England.
Although, head coach Rahul Dravid in his virtual press conference on Wednesday has provided an update on Rohit’s availability. He clarified that Rohit has not yet been ruled out of the series, and the medical team is still monitoring.
