KL Rahul, the Indian cricketer who is also seen as the upcoming captain of team India has been ruled out of the Test series against Sri Lanka starting March 4, because of his injury. In February while he was playing against West Indies in the ODIs, he suffered a serious hamstring injury. As he is tending to his injuries, he has taken a break from cricket. He is expected to return and will be seen in action in the Indian Premier League(IPL 2022).
Lucknow Super Giants managed to retain KL Rahul for Rs 17 crore. In the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League, the Karnataka-born cricketer will lead the team from the front.
He went through a tough spell in the last two seasons at Punjab Kings and is yet to prove his credentials as a captain. The Punjab-based franchise finished sixth on the points table under his captaincy.
Recently he came to the limelight on social media not because of cricket but for one of his Instagram posts when Ayan Shetty, the brother of KL Rahul’s rumored girlfriend, Athiya Shetty trolled him by commenting on his post which went viral on social media.
In the picture Rahul posted on Instagram, he is seen sitting on a different planet which resembles Mars, and the image seems to be photoshopped. He used the famous dialogue by Nawazuddin Siddiqui from the web series Sacred Games 2 and captioned the Instagram post as, “Chaand pe hai apun”.
