In another setback for the Indian squad, batsman KL Rahul has been ruled out of the remained of the two Tests of the ongoing four-match series in Australia. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), in a media release on Tuesday, said that the 28-year-old sprained his left wrist while batting during a practice session at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Saturday.
“KL Rahul sprained his left wrist while batting in the nets at the MCG during Team India’s practice session on Saturday. The wicketkeeper-batsman will not be available for the remaining two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy as he will need about three weeks time to recover completely and regain full strength,” the BCCI said in a statement.
“He will now return to India and head to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for further rehabilitation of his injury.”
