Indian opener KL Rahul’s chances of playing in the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy are slim. The Indian opener while talking to the Times of India newspaper told that his chances are pretty slim.
“I will just have to wait and see but the chances are very, very slim,” Rahul was quoted as saying by the Times of India.
“I had torn my labrum (a ring of fibrocartilage). I couldn’t get into a few positions because my shoulder kept dislocating – popped out and popped back in. “That’s why I couldn’t play a lot of shots, had to restrict myself. I played with a lot of medication and taping. Surgery was to fix it on the inside.”
Rahul injured his shoulder during India’s first Test match of the 4-match series against Australia. The surgery has been done but as far as the recovery is concerned, it will almost take Rahul two-three months.
