Indian cricketer and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batsman KL Rahul, who is out of the ongoing Indian Premier League season 10 due to his shoulder injury, recently spotted spending quality time in India’s most popular holiday destination, Goa. KL Rahul suffered a shoulder injury during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series against Australia earlier this year.
KL Rahul’s absence definitely felt by the RCB team as they failed to qualify for the playoffs. RCB after playing 13 games and with 5 points is at the last position at the points table. KL Rahul was the team’s third-highest run-getter in the last Indian Premier League season, behind only Virat Kohli and AB de Viliers, with a tally of 397 from 12 innings.
KL Rahul took to his Instagram account to share his pictures and wrote: “ Working on my tan. Oh wait I was born with that. Hahah!! #throwback #holiday #enjoythesimplethings.”
He shared one more picture and captioned it as: “ We travel not to escape life , but for life not to escape us. #sweetescape #abetterplace.”
Due to his injury KL Rahul too failed to feature in 15-member Indian team squad for the Champions Trophy starting in June.
