KL Rahul to miss whole IPL 2017 due to Shoulder injury
Already sweating over the fitness of their skipper Virat Kohli, Royal Challengers Bangalore dealt with another huge blow ahead of the 10th season of the Indian Premier League with the chance of their in-form wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul skipping the upcoming season due to shoulder injury.
Rahul, who carried a shoulder injury all through the series of 4 match Test series against Australia, is likely to tour to England next week for a surgery that could efficiently rule him out of the complete IPL 2017. Despite the injury, the 24-year old batsman turned into India’s 2nd highest run-getter in the Test series with 393 runs, in the back of Cheteshwar Pujara, who had 405.
While there may be no readability on how long Rahul could take for complete healing, the Karnataka player and the national side side would be hoping he is returned in the thick of factors by the time the team reunites ahead of the 2017 Champions Trophy in England in June. The limited-overs competition will be followed by a full tour of Sri Lanka in July-August.
