Ahead of the England Clash, KL Rahul opened up on Bitter Lucknow Memories

As the Indian cricket team is preparing for the Cricket World Cup 2023 match against England at Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on Sunday, KL Rahul was reminded of some bitter memories from the venue. It was this ground where he injured himself during the Indian Premier League and ended up spending months on the sidelines.
Speaking at the pre-match press conference, Rahul said that he was sad that he couldn't finish the Indian Premier League 2023 season with the Lucknow-based franchise.
Rahul said, "Yes, I am a little sad about that, but the injury that I had kept me out of the game for 4-5 months. That was a tough time. Whoever has an injury, if you ask anyone, undergoes surgery, and to come back, it takes a lot of hard work and a lot of patience, and you have to go through that, which is not very easy. In cricket, whatever ups and downs happen, sometimes you score 100, sometimes you don't. That success or failure you can handle, but this painful time that is there is doing physio and coming back into cricket. That was tough.”
He further added, "I can't say that it is not on my mind. Yesterday, when I came to the ground, my last memory of this ground was falling down and injuring myself. " Mai bhoolna chahta hoon magar log bhoolne nahi dete. Hopefully, I can put that aside and make some better and happier memories to forget all of that.”
