India’s Rahul has picked up a hand injury for what is believed to be the second time in the ongoing series against West Indies.

The news was revealed by India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour in a press conference yesterday about the team’s preparations for the remaining two matches.

“Unfortunately, Rahul has picked up a hand injury during practice,” Rathour confirmed. “He’s in doubt for the upcoming match, so we’ll have to assess the extent of the injury. Hopefully he’ll be okay, but we won’t know until the scans come back.”

Rathour’s comments suggest that the injury may not be too serious and that Rahul could still play some part in the remainder of the series.

Rahul has been a key contributor to the batting line-up in the series and it would be a major blow to India if he was ruled out.

The news of Rahul’s injury comes as the two sides are locked at 1-1 in the series, ahead of the third Test in St Lucia. The fourth and final Test will be held in Trinidad, starting on Wednesday.

India will be hoping for a quick recovery for Rahul in order for him to be ready for the upcoming Test matches. Only time will tell if he can make a full recovery, but in the meantime, the Indian team remains optimistic that he will be fit and available for selection.
