Rahul is being evaluated by medical staff after likely pulling his hip flexor: Krunal Pandya

The primary captain of the Lucknow Super Giants, KL Rahul, strained a hip flexor muscle on Monday, according to interim captain Krunal Pandya.
LSG was defeated by Royal Challengers Bangalore by 18 runs in this low-scoring IPL game.
Rahul strained his right thigh muscle while pursuing a ball towards the extra cover boundary, and LSG, who had been asked to bowl first, took a significant hit early in the game.
An injured Rahul stepped out to bat at number 11 with LSG needing 24 runs from eight balls, but he failed to score in the three deliveries he faced.
“It's a tragic situation. I believe that Rahul pulled his hip flexor. I'm unsure of how awful it is. At the post-match presentation, Pandya stated that the medical team would evaluate it.
Pandya, though, was pleased with the bowlers from LSG's performance in holding a batsman-heavy RCB to 126 for nine, despite the fact that it resulted in a defeat.
“We restricted them quite effectively in the first half. Great teamwork was put out. Really pleased with our performance in this tournament. We would have taken 126 when the game first began. But we just were unable to carry out our intentions, he continued.
The fifty-run stand with Virat Kohli on a challenging surface, according to RCB captain Faf du Plessis, who was also named player of the match for his 40-ball 44, was a match-winning partnership.
“Having a fifty-run partnership in the first six overs ultimately won the match. First pitch was crucial. They possessed four spinners, although it seemed that spinning was labor-intensive. At the Chinnaswamy, it feels like the ball is going everywhere, so it is a little bit easier for a captain,” he said.
If I could have had 135… We were working towards what, in my opinion, was a pretty fantastic score. Again, it is very difficult to score if you enter on this pitch. told the guys that it would be difficult for them if we got two or three early wickets.
Karn Sharma (2/20) and Josh Hazlewood, who is making a return, received particular plaudits from Du Plessis for their bowling performances.
“I am really thrilled for Karn. One of those people that consistently puts in hard effort without receiving praise. For a leg-spinner, playing in Chinnaswamy is difficult. Amazing performance from him tonight.
The expertise of Hazlewood has been missed. His presence instills such serenity and poise. He responded, “Nice way to ease him into the competition.
