KL Rahul to undergo surgery after being diagnosed with acute appendicitis
Mayank Agarwal was named captain for his or her recreation in opposition to the Delhi Capitals
KL Rahul has been diagnosed with acute appendicitis after being rushed to hospital following complaints of extreme belly ache on the Punjab Kings’ crew lodge in Ahmedabad. The subject “will be resolved surgically and for safety measures he has been transferred to the hospital for the same,” a franchise assertion on Twitter stated. In his absence, Mayank Agarwal was named the Kings’ captain for Sunday’s game in opposition to the Delhi Capitals.
Rahul is the event’s highest scorer to date with 331 runs in seven innings at a median of 66.20 and strike fee of 136.21, together with 4 half-centuries. He hit an unbeaten 91 against the Royal Challengers Bangalore within the Kings’ earlier match on Friday. Agarwal has been much less profitable to date this season, scoring 161 runs in six innings at 26.83, with a strike fee of 127.77.
Rahul’s availability for the remainder of the IPL 2021 can be decided by the Kings as soon as the docs verify the analysis. But trying on the common interval of restoration following appendix surgery, he is likely to be a doubt for the rest of the competitors – returning to regular exercise sometimes takes between one and three weeks, however performing strenuous exercise takes some time longer.
Ahead of Sunday’s match and midway into their group video games, the Kings sat simply outdoors of the highest 4 on the IPL factors desk, with three wins in seven video games.
