KL The Lucknow Super Giants captain has already left the franchise camp after his IPL 2023 season. The India wicketkeeper-batsman is reportedly in Mumbai for scans, and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has taken over his case, as Cricbuzz reported on May 3.

Karun Nair has joined the Lucknow Super Giants as Rahul's successor for the IPL 2023 season.

Rahul confirmed in an Instagram post that he will undergo thigh surgery and will therefore miss the World Test Championship final, which is scheduled for early June. He wrote, "It has been determined, after careful consideration and consultation with the medical team, that I will be undergoing surgery on my thigh in the near future." In the coming weeks, my rehabilitation and recovery will be my primary focus. Although it's a difficult decision, I know it's the right one for ensuring a full recovery.

As the group chief, it torments me profoundly not to have the option to be there during this essential period. However, I am certain that the boys will rise to the occasion and perform at their best as always. Together with all of you, I'll be watching every game from the sidelines and rooting for them.

I'm devastated that I won't be attending the Oval with Team India next month. I'll use every effort to rejoin the blue and serve my nation. That has always been my main priority and emphasis.

Rahul had hernia surgery little over ten months ago, and it is understood that all relevant variables are being taken into account.

The LSG management has not decided whether Rahul will be replaced. They have just four league games remaining to play this season, and if they make the playoffs, there might be even fewer. Rahul has already been replaced as captain by Krunal Pandya.

Even though Jaydev Unadkat has been ruled out of the IPL, his situation with the WTC remains a mystery. Once the clarity has been determined, the BCCI may select replacements. However, the choice of who could take Rahul's place will be straightforward. Ishan Kishan may serve as the second wicketkeeper for the one-off Test because he was previously a member of the Indian team. As referenced over, the Unadkat circumstance is as yet muddled.

In the meantime, it has been reported that the Indian team will travel to the WTC final in London immediately following the IPL league stage, which ends on May 21, most likely on May 23. At a later time, the IPL play-off participants will depart for the UK.
