Disappointing news is coming out for Indian fans. KL Rahul, who got injured during IPL 2023, will hardly be seen playing in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023. Let us tell you that India has to play the Asia Cup before the 2023 World Cup. For which the teams have started making preparations by playing series continuously. But for India, due to injury problem of many key players remains.
In the latest update on one such key player, it has been told that India may have to play in the absence of star batsman KL Rahul in the Asia Cup 2023. Let us tell you that this Karnataka player was ruled out of IPL 2023 in May due to a thigh injury. After which he left for his surgery in London. According to Cricbuzz, the date of Rahul’s return to the Indian team is yet to be fixed and it is unlikely that he will be able to make a comeback in time for the Asia Cup.
Apart from this, the report also states that middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer is also not fully fit at the moment. Recently, Iyer also underwent surgery for a back injury. In such a situation, if these two players do not play in the Asia Cup 2023, then the team will definitely miss them.
Will Sanju Samson retain his place?
Notably, this could increase the chances of Sanju Samson joining the Indian squad for the Asia Cup. Because Sanju has also been included in the ODI team for the West Indies tour as a wicket-keeper batsman. Rishabh Pant is still nursing the injury sustained during the car accident. If Rahul fails to recover in time, India could retain Samson along with Ishan Kishan for the 50-over tournament.
