KL Rahul clears fitness test; will take captaincy duties from Shikhar Dhawan vs Zimbabwe

KL Rahul passed his fitness test and will take over the captaincy duties from Shikhar Dhawan for the Zimbabwe ODIs. KL was named in India’s squad for three ODIs vs Zimbabwe. Rahul was out of action for the past few months owing to a sports hernia injury followed by COVID-19. 

“The BCCI Medical Team has assessed KL Rahul and cleared him to play in the upcoming three-match ODI series in Zimbabwe. The All-India Senior Selection Committee has appointed him the captain of the side and named Shikhar Dhawan as his deputy,” said BCCI in a statement.
