That's so sweet. ♥️— K L Rahul (@klrahul) May 25, 2023
Drop me a DM with your address. I'd be delighted to give him my signed jersey. https://t.co/akHR1Xpi5e
He was unfortunately forced to sit out due to a thigh injury he sustained during Lucknow Super Giants’ home match against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on May 1. This injury temporarily sidelined him from the tournament.
Unfortunately, Rahul’s injury has resulted in his unavailability for the highly anticipated World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and Australia. The prestigious match is set to commence on June 7 at The Oval in London.
To fill the void left by Rahul’s absence, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made the decision to include wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan as his replacement in the Indian squad for this significant event organized by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
