KL Rahul to miss first two group stage games of Asia Cup


 KL Rahul is set to miss the first two Group stage games of the Asia Cup 2023, including the high-voltage clash against Pakistan on 2 September, as he continues his recovery from injury.

Rahul will stay back in Bangalore with the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and will be assessed again on 4 September ahead of the Super 4 stage of the Asia Cup, Team India Head Coach Rahul Dravid told reporters here.

“He’s had a really good week with us,” he said. “Really done well, done a lot of things. He’s progressing really well on the route that we want to take.

“But he will be unavailable for the first part [of the Asia Cup], for the Kandy leg of the trip. The NCA will be looking after him for the next few days while we are travelling.

“We will reassess on 4 September and take it from there. But the signs are looking good and he’s progressing really well. He will be unavailable for the first two games,” Dravid said.
