Cricket News: KL Rahul provided an update on his injury, which has kept him out of India’s home series against South Africa and their upcoming tour of England. Rahul stated that his “road to recovery has begun,” and on Thursday, he posted another Instagram story, this time thanking fellow opener Shikhar Dhawan for his message.

“Wishing you a speedy recovery brother! Get well soon!” Dhawan had said in his Instagram stories in response to Rahul’s update. “Thank you my brother,” Rahul said in his story in response to Dhawan. Rahul would be hoping to regain full fitness and return to action as soon as possible as he is an integral part of the Indian batting unit in all forms of the game.

In his absence, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant led India in the T20Is against South Africa, while Hardik Pandya was given his first chance to lead India against Ireland while Pant and the other seniors were preparing for the England Test.

Rahul’s absence is likely to hurt India more in the longest format of the game, as they look to win a series in England for the first time in 15 years. He was one of India’s top batsmen last year when they defeated England at Lord’s and the Oval to take a 2-1 series lead before the fifth and final Test at Manchester was postponed due to Covid-19 concerns.

Almost a year later, the rescheduled fifth Test will be held at Edgbaston in Birmingham, with India likely to be without first-choice openers Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma. The latter is racing against the clock to recover from Covid-19. India head coach Rahul Dravid refused to rule Rohit out of the first Test, but the right-hander is unlikely to be named to India’s XI on Friday.
