Ajinkya Rahane says KL Rahul absence big blow but backs youngsters to step up in India vs New Zealand Test series – Latest Cricket News – IND vs NZ: Ajinkya Rahane expresses concern over KL Rahul’s injury

The first match of the two-match Test series between India and New Zealand will be played at Green Park, Kanpur from Thursday. Ajinkya Rahane is captaining India in this match. KL Rahul has been ruled out of the series due to injury. Big blow for India. Rahane has admitted that the team will miss Rahul a lot. But at the same time he expressed hope that other players would make up for his lack.

Rahane said in the press conference a day before the Test match, ‘Look, this is a big setback. KL Rahul is not available for these two test matches. He did really well in England. He was in good form and played really well. Obviously, we will miss him but we have players who can fill that gap, who have done well for us in the past. Not too worried about the opening slot. Apart from Rahul, many other players will also not take part in this test match. Team India’s Test team’s regular captain Virat Kohli has been rested in the first Test match. Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant have also been rested.

Rahane said that this is a great opportunity for the youth to prove their worth. First of all we will miss these three people (Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Rohit Sharma). But this is a good opportunity for all the youngsters to play, whoever gets the chance. They want to play freely. The conditions here and in South Africa will be different. We are thinking about this series first.
