“I Am Not Sure On KL Rahul injury”: India batting coach Vikram Rathour

Written by Sumit Seth

Indian cricket team batting coach Vikram Rathour said that batter KL Rahul is not fit at the moment but he was unsure about his exact condition and added that the medical team will be able to advise on his availability in the future. Rahul played the first Test in the five-match series but was ruled out of the next two games due to his quadriceps injury. There were reports that he may make a return for the fourth match in Ranchi starting Friday but the BCCI said that he was not fit. Rathour was asked about his situation in the pre-match press conference on Thursday and the India coach had a clear answer.

“For me either he is fit or he is not. At the moment he is not fit. I am not sure what percent he is fit at the moment and what is the stage,” Rathour told reporters in the press conference.

“I am not sure, the medical team will be able to advise that but as far as we are concerned he is not fit and not available for this game, so we are focusing on this team,” he added.

Meanwhile, England Cricket Board (ECB) on Thursday announced their playing eleven for the fourth Test match against India in Ranchi with Ollie Robinson and Shoaib Bashir coming into the side for the Three Lions.
