KL Rahul's injury case will be fully handled by the BCCI, and a new LSG captain has been named ahead of the IPL 2023 matchup with CSK.
In IPL 2023, KL Rahul hurt his hamstring while playing for his team against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
According to sources, Rahul's injuries is far worse than initially thought.
Rahul's matter would be entirely handled by BCCI.
KL Rahul, the captain of the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG), hurt his hamstring during his team's most recent IPL 2023 match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) a few days ago. Before pulling up, Rahul was chasing the ball from behind to prevent it from heading for the boundary. Rahul left the pitch while experiencing excruciating discomfort. Rahul left the field after suffering an injury in the game's very first over. He didn't start the home team's innings, but he worked very hard to bat after the ninth wicket fell, despite being in discomfort. It's unclear how severe his injury is, but according to reports, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) The degree of his injury is not yet evident, but according to rumours, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is prepared to take over Rahul's case from the team.
According to a source in Cricbuzz, given the severity of the injury, Rahul's continued participation in the IPL 2023 will be at the discretion of the BCCI and the National Cricket Academy (NCA). Rahul, the opening batter for the Lucknow team, was in pain and had a swelling; scans are being done as a result. Although he is still in Lucknow with the team, he will not play against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Wednesday (May 3). Instead, all-rounder Krunal Pandya, who took over as captain on Monday while Rahul was away, will captain the team.
The BCCI and NCA's top focus will be to get Rahul, who is anticipated to be the second wicket-keeper in the Indian side and will play in the summit match, ready for the match because the World Test Championship (WTC) final is set to take place in a month. According to the franchise sources cited in the story, the BCCI would henceforth oversee all decisions about Rahul.
Given that Rahul is not only crucial at the top of the order with the bat for his team, but also the captain, it will be a significant blow to the Super Giants' chances. LSG now have two alternatives to replace Rahul: either get Quinton de Kock back in the picture as the opener and play an Indian speed bowler in place of Naveen ul Haq, or bring in Manan Vohra in a straight swap at the top of the order.
LSG lost to RCB in their most recent game, which was their fourth loss in the IPL 2023. They will be eager to beat the formidable CSK in their second straight home game.
