KL Rahul injured, will remain unavailable for Border-Gavaskar trophy

BCCI, in a media release on Tuesday, said that the 28-year-old sprained his left wrist while batting during a practice session at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday. The wicketkeeper-batsman will be non-functional for the remaining two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy as he needs time about three weeks to recover. India are already missing captain Virat Kohli, who is on paternity leave, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav due to injuries. Rahul will return to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for further rehabilitation.
