KL Rahul pens a note on “Health And Fitness”; Aims To Recover Soon

Apart from KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli have also been rested for the series.

KL Rahul issued a statement stating Covid19 has pushed back his return to international stage by a couple of weeks. However he said he aims to recover quickly and be available for selection.

It is important to note that Rahul had been named in the squad for the T20Is against West Indies, but he ended up testing positive and hence was ruled out.

Prior to this, Rahul had suffered an injury before the T20I series against South Africa, and he did not feature in the five-match series.

KL tweeted the note

“Hey guys, I wanted to clarify a couple of things about my health and fitness. My surgery in June was successful and I had begun training with the hope of returning to national duty for the team’s tour of the West Indies. Unfortunately, as I was nearing a return to full fitness, I tested positive for COVID-19.”

Taking to Twitter, Rahul wrote.

“This naturally pushes things back by a couple of weeks, but I aim to recover as quickly as possible, and be available for selection as soon as I can. To represent the national team is the highest honour, and I cannot wait to get out there back in blue,”
