India’s swashbuckling opener KL Rahul has successfully undergone surgery for a sports hernia in Germany & is on the road to recovery. The opener confirmed the development by sharing a tweet on his Offical Twitter account. “The process was successful. Return to action is likely to take time but the road to recovery has begun,” Rahul tweeted on Wednesday Night.
The usual timeframe required for an athlete to recover after a sports hernia surgery with proper therapy and rehabilitation is between six to 12 weeks. KL Rahul will complete his therapy & rehabilitation at the NCA in Bengaluru.
KL Rahul has successfully led his new IPL franchise LSG to the playoffs of IPL 2022, ending the tournament as the second-highest run-scorer by amassing 616 runs in 15 innings at an average of 51.33 and a strike rate of 135.38. Only Jos Buttler scored more runs than Rahul.
On the back of his scintillating performance in the IPL 2022, he was named as the Captain of India’s T20I squad for the home T20I series against South Africa. However, on the eve of the first T20I, he was ruled out of the T20I series due to a right groin injury. Kuldeep Yadav too sustained a hand injury & the BCCI confirmed that the duo will report to the NCA where the medical team will assess their injury & then decide on the future course of treatment.
With regular captain Rohit Sharma & former Captain Virat Kohli being rested for the T20I series & Rahul being ruled out due to an injury, Rishabh Pant was named teh Captain for the T20I series which ended with a 2-2 score with the last match ending in a no-result as rain interrupted the gameplay. Rahul was not considered for selection for the just-concluded tour of Ireland or the Test match in Birmingham due to his injury but he is expected to recover fully by the time of the India tour of West Indies.
Meanwhile, India will begin their England tour with the rescheduled fifth Test slated to begin on 1st July at Edgbaston followed by a T20I & ODI Series.
