Is KL Rahul injured: what happened to KL Rahul? Why isn’t KL Rahul lined up against Delhi Capitals?
Is KL Rahul injured: The Lucknow Super Giants captain hobbled back to the dugout in Round 2 at Wankhede Stadium today.
Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul led from the front after opting to strike first in the 2022 Indian Premier League match against Delhi Capitals at Wankhede Stadium.
In what was his second half-century in the current 15th IPL season, it was his 29th in tournament history, fourth at this venue and third against this opposition.
As a result, Rahul further cemented his position in the tournament’s top scorer list. Rahul contributing with 77 (51) with the help of four fours and five sixes played a starting role in LSG scoring 195/3 in 20 overs this afternoon.

Is KL Rahul injured?
It wasn’t until Round 2 of Round 2 that Rahul was seen hobbling off the ground to reach the dugout. Although the exact nature and extent of the problem remains unknown, Rahul appears to be suffering from some discomfort following an attempted sweep earlier today.
Readers should note that it was in the ninth that Rahul aimed to sweep Capitals spinner Kuldeep Yadav. As he managed to make contact with the ball, Rahul was seen going off balance to fall onto the pitch. It is suspected that Rahul might have done something to his hamstring in the process.
Lucknow all-rounder Krunal Pandya, who once captained the team when Rahul left the floor due to what appeared to be a slight trouble against Mumbai Indians at Brabourne Stadium last month, is leading the team in the absence of Rahul.
UPDATE: KL Rahul returned to the court ahead of the power play climax in the current game.
