India opener KL Rahul is not in his best phase after he suffered an injury before the South Africa series. The injury had written him off from the five-match T20I series against the Proteas at home and the upcoming 5 Test match vs England. Rahul then reported to the National Cricket Academy (NCA) where the medical team assessed the batter and it was decided he would not go to England for the rescheduled fifth Test.
However, the batter is in the right frame of mind as he shared his pictures on the Koo app on Monday. “Count your blessings”, K.L. Rahul captioned the post on the Koo app.
Team India arrived in England on June 16 to kick off the England tour. India will lock horns with England for the rescheduled fifth Test at Old Trafford starting on July 1.
The rescheduled fifth Test is counted as the fifth match of India’s 2021 series in England, which the visitors lead by 2-1. The fifth Test was postponed at the last minute following a Covid-19 outbreak in 2021.
