Indian opener, KL Rahul may miss this season of Indian Premier League

RCB’s wicket keeper-batsman, KL Rahul may miss IPL 10

KL Rahul, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s wicket keeper-batsman, is expected to miss this season of IPL. This is a huge blow for the men from Bangalore. With Virat Kohli already ruled out of the first few matches, this will come as big blow for the RCB fans and management. Both the Indian batsmen are hampered by shoulder injuries suffered in the recently concluded test series. KL Rahul suffered the injury in the first match of the series. He dislocated his shoulder during the Pune test but continued to power through and ended up as the second highest run-getter for India. He is expected to go under the knife next week in England. The 24-year-old batsman from Karnataka is expected to be fit for the Champions Trophy in June.

Impact of KL Rahul’s injury on Royal Challengers Bangalore

Royal Challengers Bengaluru have a star studded batting line up. Chris Gayle, AB De Villiers, Shane Watson and Virat Kohli make up four of their top five. Rahul might not be in the category of these men but he still is more than a useful batsman who holds the ability to turn the match on its head. He was the third highest run-scorer for RCB during the last season behind Kohli and De Villiers. With both Kohli and Rahul ruled out, the responsibility of getting runs will fall on the shoulders of Gayle, De Villiers and Watson. The local talents such as Mandeep Singh and Sarfaraz Khan also need to put in a shift and score runs when the team needs them.

RCB will also be affected in the wicketkeeping department because of Rahul’s injury. He replaced Kedar Jadhav as the RCB keeper after four matches of the last season. Daniel Vettori, RCB coach will look for his replacement from the talented pool of uncapped players available to him.
