KL Rahul was forced to sit out of the action due to a thigh injury that he sustained in the TATA IPL 2023 and it also required surgery.
However, after the successful operation, the middle order batter in the ODI format of the Indian Team is ready to go and available for the Asia Cup 2023 and hopefully in the ODI World Cup in 2023.
KL Rahul walks in the ODI team which will take the field during the Asia Cup 2023. The inclusion of Rahul will add depth to the middle order of Team India.
KL Rahul is a complete team man who can open the innings with his skipper, bat in the middle order and even be the wicket-keeper just like the head coach of India, Rahul Dravid.
KL has been sharing those photos and videos on his social media page. The medical team of the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru is satisfied with the progress shown by this player from Karnataka and they have said that Rahul is available for selection.
India will open their campaign of the ODI Asia Cup against the arch-rivals Pakistan. This epic clash will be played on 2nd September 2023.
