In the latest development as per the report in SportStar, it is learned that Indian batter Ajinkya Rahane has been ruled out of action for 2 months with a hamstring injury.
Rahane, who played for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the IPL 2022 this season, was ruled out of the IPL 15 after he suffered a tendon tear in his left hamstring during the match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Pune on May 14.
This means that the right-hander will miss the Test match against England, which is scheduled to take place in July this year. He also will be ruled out of the knockout phase of the Ranji Trophy 2022, which will take place in June.
Rahane had a poor outing in the IPL 2022. He managed just 133 runs in seven innings at an average of just 19 and a strike rate of 103.90.
He had a decent first phase of the Ranji Trophy as he piled up 185 runs in four innings, which included a hundred, and a fifty. Notably, he was axed from India’s squad for the home Test series against Sri Lank after the poor outings on South Africa tour.
Rahane has so far played 82 Tests for India, scoring 4931 runs at an average of 38.35 to go with 12 centuries and 25 half-centuries. He also has played 90 ODIs and 20 T20Is, amassing 2962 and 375 runs respectively.
