KL Rahul, who was earlier ruled out of the ongoing T20 series, is likely to miss the England tour as well. As per reports, the Indian cricketer is suffering from a groin injury and isn’t likely to recover in time. Add to that, the Indian Cricket Board has decided to send him to Germany for further treatment.

The Indian opener, thus, is likely to miss the entire England tour. The tour is scheduled to start with a Test match and KL Rahul was expected to open the innings with Rohit Sharma. However, with him not being in the side, India might try either Shubman Gill or Cheteshwar Pujara to open the innings alongside Rohit Sharma.

In this article, we will be talking about three players who can replace KL Rahul for the England Tour:

Indian opener, Mayank Agarwal hasn’t had the best of the outings in the last two Test series against South Africa and Sri Lanka. Against South Africa, he amassed 135 runs in 3 Tests. In the following Test series, he failed to hit a single half-century in three chances against Sri Lanka. With KL Rahul expected to miss out, the selectors might give him one more chance to showcase his mettle and get his place back in the Test side.
