Lucknow super giants
Since the second ODI against West Indies on February 9 in Ahmedabad, KL Rahul hasn't played international cricket. An upper left hamstring strain while fielding in the second ODI ruled him out of action till he captained Lucknow Super Giants in IPL 2022 and scored 616 runs in 15 matches to be the second-highest run-getter in the competition.
Right after IPL, he was named as captain for the five-match T20I series at home against South Africa in June. But a right groin injury on the eve of the first match in New Delhi ruled him out of the series. Rahul travelled to Germany to undergo a sports hernia surgery, ruling him out of the England tour.
