IND vs ENG Test: Injury problems continue to plague India, KL Rahul ruled out of IND vs ENG Rajkot Test, Devdutt Padikkal to join as cover

Concerns over injuries to the Indian cricket team persist. Star batter KL Rahul has been ruled out of the 3rd IND vs ENG Test in Rajkot. KL Rahul missed the previous Test due to a quad injury. Despite being selected in the team, KL Rahul is not fully fit to play this match. Devdutt Padikkal will join the team replacing Rahul.

The India vs England Test series remains tied at 1-1. KL Rahul missed the Vizag Test after suffering a quad injury during the Hyderabad Test. Despite a gap between the 2nd and 3rd Test, KL Rahul is not quite fit to continue for the team. On the other hand, Ravindra Jadeja, another injured player, has recovered.

India vs England

BCCI Statement on KL Rahul –

KL Rahul, whose availability for the remaining three Tests was subject to fitness, was ruled out of the third Test against England in Rajkot. Mr. Rahul has reached 90 per cent fitness for the match and is progressing well under the supervision of the BCCI medical team.

He will continue his recovery process at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru to be fully fit for the fourth and fifth Tests.

Now, the absence of KL Rahul will pose a major problem for the Indian cricket team. The current team does not have Virat Kohli in the mix. Shreyas Iyer was also snubbed after a series of poor performances. Rajat Patidar made his debut in the previous match and should be given another chance.

Now the biggest question is: who will replace KL Rahul in Rajkot Test? Cheteshwar Pujara despite his good form in the Ranji Trophy has been overlooked. In such a condition, the BCCI selection committee will give a chance to Karnataka batter Devdutt Padikkal.

The Indian Express claims that KL Rahul will need another week to be fully fit. On the other hand, Devdutt Padikkal has been in sensational form late on. He has scored 556 runs in just 4 Ranji Trophy matches so far. The Karnataka batter showed his batting style by hammering 3 tons in the Ranji Trophy. In the unofficial Tests against England Lions, Padikkal continued his good form by hammering a ton.
