PBKS skipper Rahul diagnosed with acute appendicitis

May 3, 2021

Punjab Kings (PBKS) skipper K.L. Rahul has been hospitalised and will go undergo a surgery as he was diagnosed with acute appendicitis, the IPL franchise revealed on Sunday.

PBKS announced the news on Twitter ahead of their clash against Delhi Capitals (DC) at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, on Sunday.

“K.L. Rahul complained of severe abdomen pain last night and after not responding to medication, he was taken to emergency room for further tests which revealed that he was diagnosed with acute appendicitis,” the franchise said in a statement.

“It will be resolved surgically and for safety measures, he has been transferred to the hospital for the same,” it added.

Rahul, who is currently the leading run-scorer of the tournament with 331 runs from seven games at an average of 66.20 including four half-centuries, is likely to be out of action for the foreseeable future.

Upon full recovery from his surgical procedure, he’ll also have to serve a quarantine period if and when he returns to the Punjab Kings bio-bubble.

Punjab Kings, who have never won the IPL, are placed fifth on the points table with three wins from seven games.
