ENG vs IND: Star Indian batsman KL Rahul will travel to Germany for treatment of a groin ailment. He is poised to miss the forthcoming England tour after being ruled out of the ongoing T20I series against South Africa.

Rahul, who was set to lead the side against the Proteas in five T20Is at home, suffered a right groin injury on June 8. As a result, he was ruled out of the series just before the series opener in Delhi, and Rishabh Pant was chosen as the replacement captain.

Rahul will travel to Germany for treatment and will be unavailable for the England series, which includes the delayed Edgbaston Test followed by a white-ball series, according to BCCI secretary Jay Shah.

“That is correct, the board is working on his fitness and he will be going to Germany soon,” BCCI secretary Jay Shah quoted.

There are no plans to call a replacement for Rahul, according to other media reports. The selectors will, however, have to name a vice-captain for the tour, given Rahul is unlikely to play in any of the seven games.

Rahul last played for India in February of this year and will captain the newly-included Lucknow Super Giants in the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2022.

Previously, some important members of the Test team, including batters Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara, opener Shubman Gill, all-rounders Shardul Thakur and Ravindra Jadeja, and pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj, left for England on Thursday morning after assembling in Mumbai.

The remaining test match is set to start on 1 July and if the match ends with a draw or with India winning the match. That will lead to a huge achievement and record by defeating England in their backyard.
