KL Rahul Injury Update: Ruled Out Of IPL 2023, WTC 2023 Final

KL Rahul Injury Update: Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul has been ruled out of the ongoing IPL 2023 season and upcoming WTC 2023 final owing to a thigh injury that he sustained earlier this week during a match.

KL Rahul Injury Update

Rahul tore a tendon in his right leg while chasing a ball in the second over of their match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday. He had to be helped off the field at that point and did not return until a chase of 127 got unexpectedly tense.

He took to Instagram to say he will need surgery and was “absolutely gutted” to not be able to play at the Oval next month. His Instagram post reads “After careful consideration and consultation with the medical team, it’s been concluded that I’ll be undergoing a surgery on my thigh shortly. My focus will be on my rehabilitation and recovery in the coming weeks. It’s a tough call to make, but I know it’s the right one to ensure a full recovery.

As the team captain, it pains me deeply not to be able to be there during this crucial period. But, I’m confident that the boys will rise to the occasion and give their best performance as always. I’ll be cheering for them from the sidelines with all of you, watching every game. @lucknowsupergiants.

Absolutely gutted that I won’t be at the Oval next month with Team India. I’ll do everything I can to get back in blue and help my country. That has always been my focus and priority. @indiancricketteam.

I want to express gratitude to each one of you – my fans, that gave me the strength to get back up, the LSG management and the BCCI for their promptness, and my teammates for their unwavering support during this difficult time.

Your encouragement and messages mean a lot to me and motivate me to come back stronger and fitter than ever before. Meanwhile, I promise to keep you all updated on my progress and hope to be back on the field sooner than soon. The last few days have been really hard, but I’m determined to come out on top.

Injuries are never easy, but I’ll give it my all as always. Thank you for all the support and good wishes”.

Regarding the match, the 31-year-old walked out to bat at No. 11 in the hopes of winning the game. But he was unable to run between the wickets, which resulted in the No. 9 Amit Mishra facing every single ball of the last over.

LSG eventually lost by 18 runs and then the game got mired in the Virat Kohli vs Gautam Gambhir controversy, which Rahul tried to mitigate by separating the two men.

LSG will play their next game against Gujarat Titans on May 7 in Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
