Due to the severity of KL Rahul's hamstring pull, which he suffered during the LSG vs. RCB game on May 1 in Lucknow, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has assumed full responsibility for his case. The National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru's medical staff will decide whether or not he can play in the future.
The LSG skipper will not take part even though the squad is in Lucknow, where they are scheduled to face Chennai Super Kings. The squad will be led by Krunal Pandya in his absence. Due to Rahul's position as a contractual player and his participation in the World Test Championship (WTC) final, the BCCI and NCA have stepped in.
The severity of Rahul's injuries, which is causing him discomfort and swelling, will be determined by more scans. According to a source on Cricbuzz, He is anticipated to miss a number of games and maybe the majority of the LSG's remaining contests. After the injury, he tried to bat, but he did not take a run and was clearly in discomfort. On Wednesday, LSG will provide an update on his condition.
According to the LSG spokeswoman, the club will release further information on Wednesday on Rahul's injury status.
Earlier, in a heated battle, RCB held LSG to a low total of 126 runs while winning the game by 18 runs. Due to the pitch's slowness and sluggishness, it was tough to play on and difficult for the hitters to score.
LSG attempted to capitalize on the powerplay, but their forceful strategy failed since the ball was not coming on and was gripping and spinning on this surface. Each time a player attempted to be aggressive, they lost their wicket as both sides failed to score. Rahul, who was injured and entered the game after it was almost over, was missed by LSG.
After the game, Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir got into a furious dispute. Gambhir seems to have been set off by Kohli's boisterous celebration of each wicket during RCB's successful defense of a modest score of 127.
LSG bowler Naveen-ul-Haq was spotted fighting with Kohli at the post-game handshake, while Glenn Maxwell was seen holding him back. Gambhir seemed more excited in the thick of the commotion and was repeatedly stopped from going towards Kohli. Players, officials, and support personnel from both teams eventually separated the two.
