It would be nicer if Warner gets injured for a long time: KL Rahul
India wicket-keeper batsman KL Rahul has said that it will be beneficial for India if Australia star opener David Warner is ruled out from international cricket for long time. However, he didn’t say it seriously but as a fun.
In the second ODI, Warner was injured while trying to save a run in fielding in the fourth over of India’s innings. With pain in his groin, he left the field immediately. Then the left-handed batsman was sent for a scan during the match. After receiving the outcome of the scan, it was revealed that Warner will need at least two weeks to recover from the injury.
That means he will not be able to play in the remaining ODI and three-match T20I series against India. However, he is expected to return in the Test series. D’Arcy Short has been called up for T20I series instead of Warner.
“We don’t know how bad his injury is. It would be nicer if he gets injured for a long time. One of their main batsmen. It is not nice to wish it for anyone but it would be good for the team. If his injury takes a long time, it would be good for our team,” Rahul said in the presser.
The 34-year old opener has been in superb form recently. After a great Indian Premier League (IPL) season for his team Sunrisers Hyderabad, he had been terrific in the India series too. He scored 69 and 83 runs in the first two ODIs.
