KL Rahul controlled out of residual Tests against Australia with a wrist injury

KL Rahul has been controlled out of the last two Tests against Australia in the wake of suffering an injury during training.

A statement from BCCI said that Rahul had “sprained his left wrist while batting in the nets” on Saturday and that it would take “three weeks time to recover completely and regain full strength.”

Rahul will currently join any semblance of Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav who have additionally been shipped off the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore for recovery. Rahul’s injury is an expansion to the developing list of injury-implemented avoidances in the Indian camp.

Shami had been hit on the right hand during the first Test while Yadav was constrained out midway because of a calf strain in the second Test. Rahul is the first among the batting group to be precluded.

Albeit present just in the reserves, it’ll cut down India’s bench-count of expert batsmen to two (Prithvi Shaw and one of Mayank Agarwal or Hanuma Vihari). The arrival of Rohit Sharma to the squad however will offset the gap made by Rahul’s nonappearance.
