“Rehab Is Really Going Well”: Ajinkya Rahane Provides Update On His Hamstring Injury, Probable Return Date

Out-of-favour Ajinkya Rahane, the Indian batsman, said he would need at least six to eight weeks to fully heal from a hamstring injury he suffered while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League this season.

Rahane suffered the injury in KKR’s 13th game and was later ruled out for the rest of the competition.

My Rehab Is Going Really Well: Ajinkya Rahane

“That injury was really unfortunate. But my rehab is going really well. I am recovering really well. I was in Bangalore (at the NCA) for nearly 10 days and I am going there again for my rehab and recovery. It’s been on track,” Rahane told PTI.

“So right now my only focus is on getting better. Get fit as soon as possible and be on the field. I am not sure When will be able to get fully fit, it is expected to be around 6-8 weeks but at this moment it is about taking one day at a time, one week at a time,” added the right-handed batter.

Rahane was commenting after the teaser for a web series centred on India’s success in the 2020-21 Test series in Australia was released. After losing the first Test in Adelaide, India won the series 2-1.

Rahane hit 133 runs in seven games for KKR in the recently concluded IPL, but the Mumbaikar described his experience as “excellent.”

“My experience with KKR was really good. I really enjoyed playing for KKR and the atmosphere there was really good. It is kind of a family atmosphere. We enjoyed each other’s success on and off the field but unfortunately, we couldn’t qualify for the playoffs. The team management gave me a lot of freedom to play my game and I thought it was something special. Playing under (then KKR head coach) Brendon McCullum, I learnt a lot,” he added.

Rahane was dropped from the Indian Test team earlier this year.
