While batting in the practises nets on the day before the second Test match in Mirpur, Dhaka, KL Rahul, who is serving as India’s stand-in captain for the Test series being played in Bangladesh, sustained an injury to his hand.
India is currently up 1-0 in the series, and it is anticipated that Rahul will lead the travelling side. Rohit Sharma was previously ruled out of the second Test, and he is currently recovering from a thumb injury that he sustained while playing in the ODI series. During a news conference, India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour revealed that Rahul has suffered an injury and that the team’s physician is evaluating the severity of his condition at this time.
During his pre-game press conference, Rathour stated that it did not appear that the injury was serious. “It appears like he is doing well. We can only pray that he will be fine. The physicians are looking into it, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that he’ll be okay,” during the news conference, Rathour made the following statement.
At the very end of the net practice session, KL Rahul suffered an injury on his hand. Rathour was the one performing the throwdowns at the time of the incident, which occurred when Rahul was hit.
In the unfortunate event that Rahul is unable to play in the Test, the responsibility of captaining the team could be given to the experienced Cheteshwar Pujara, who was selected for the role before the start of the series.
To further improve their chances of finishing in the second spot in the World Test Championship table, India needs to win the second Test. This will allow India to compete in the final for the second consecutive cycle of the World Test Championship.
