KL Rahul has had a torrid run of late. He was supposed to lead India in the T20I series at home against SOuth Africa in June, but was ruled out due to a groin injury. He then underwent a successful surgery for sports hernia in Germany and is now on the road to recovery. Rahul has over the years had recurrent lower abdominal related fitness issues, including groin strains and hamstring injuries. “It’s been a tough couple of weeks but the surgery was successful. I’m healing and recovering well. My road to recovery has begun. Thank you for your messages and prayers. See you soon,” Rahul had tweeted earlier.
Now the senior Indian cricket team opener has posted a video of his training at the National Cricket Acadmey in Bengaluru with the caption: “Hustle SZN”
