KL Rahul is all set to fly to Germany for the treatment of his recurring groin injury, according to CricBuzz.

After Jasprit Bumrah, KL Rahul has expressed his desire to lead India in the longest format of the game after Virat Kohli stepped down from Test captaincy. Rahul is Team India’s stand-in skipper for the upcoming three-match ODI series against South Africa.

Speaking on the eve of the first ODI against South Africa in a press conference, Rahul was asked about leading India in red-ball cricket.

“It’ll be an honour if chosen to lead the team. It’s a very exciting prospect and I will try to lead to the best of my abilities. It will be a huge responsibility,” Rahul said in the press conference.

KL made his Test captaincy debut in the second Test in the Rainbow nation. Virat was ruled out due to back spasm, and India went on to lose the game by 7 wickets in his absence.
