India suffered another injury blow in the ongoing Test series as KL Rahul has been ruled out of the remaining two Tests due to a wrist injury. He sustained the injury while batting in the nets 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,” BCCI stated in a statement issued on Tuesday.
KL Rahul will now return to India and head to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru for further rehabilitation of his injury.
