KL Rahul Replacement in Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 10
Question in detailKL Rahul ruled out of RCB for sustaining a shoulder injury. Virat Kohli and then KL Rahu, Royal Challengers Bangalore has suffered a dual loss right before IPL season 10. Accidently, both the batsmen brace RCB's top order and are out for a shoulder injury. While Virat is likely to miss a couple of initial games, KL Rahul ruled out of RCB for the whole tournament.
Already sweating over Kohli's fitness, RCB has dealt with another massive blow with their wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul flying to England for a surgery to his injured shoulder. Rahul suffered a shoulder injury during the opening Test against Australia about a month ago. Despite being in severe pain, Rahul continued to play for the rest of the series.
The injury didn't hamper his stroke-making instinct and he scored twin fifties in the second Test to help India fight back. With six half-centuries in 7 innings, the 25-year batsman finished India's second-highest run scorer after Cheteshwar Pujara 405. Rahul scored 393 runs at an average of 65.50. Also, he struck the winning run in the last Test to help his team regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Loosing such a big player ahead of IPL 2017 is a major blow for RCB. KL Rahul's replacement in Royal Challengers Bangalore is going to be crucial for the franchise. Any guesses who is going to replace him?
Since Rahul is the bating mainstay, the franchise has made no official announcement for KL Rahul's replacement in Royal Challengers Bangalore. He finished the last season as RCB's third highest run-getter, next to Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. His 397 in 12 innings helped Challengers a lot to make it to the final last year.
Who do you think will fill up KL Rahul's void in Royal Challengers Bangalore?
