KL Rahul out of IPL 2023: Indian batsman and Lucknow Supergiants captain KL Rahul has been ruled out of IPL 2023. He suffered a severe injury while fielding in the last match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. In such a situation, it is difficult for him to get fit before the World Test Championship final against Australia in London from June 7. Rahul was hit in his right thigh while stopping Faf du Plessis’ cover drive off Marcus Stoinis at the boundary. Rahul will leave the camp on Thursday after the match against CSK today and will go to Mumbai for the scan.
Preparing this wicket-keeper batsman will prove to be a big challenge in front of BCCI’s sports science and medical team. Anyway, Rahul is running out of form for the last few months. From time to time there have been demands to remove him from the team.
