LSG skipper KL Rahul ruled out of IPL 2023; set to miss WTC Finals

According to a report from PTI, Lucknow Super Giants may have to play without their leader KL Rahul for the ongoing IPL 2023 season.

It is highly likely that the LSG skipper will not be able to participate due to a thigh injury and will be undergoing scans in Mumbai after watching the match between Lucknow and Chennai Super Kings.

Rahul sustained the injury to his right leg during the team’s loss against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Monday when he was running after the ball.

The PTI report also mentioned that star pacer Jaydev Unadkat will also be unavailable for the rest of the season.

At the moment, Rahul is racing against time to regain fitness for the World Test Championship final, which is scheduled to take place at the Oval in London from June 7-11 against Australia.

“KL is currently with the team in Lucknow but he is leaving the camp on Thursday after watching the game against CSK on Wednesday. His scans will be done in Mumbai at the BCCI-designated medical facility. His case as well as Jaydev’s case will be handled by BCCI,” a senior BCCI official was quoted as saying by PTI.
