With preparations already begun for World Cup 2023, KL Rahul missing the ODI series might not be ideal. But it is family time. A BCCI official earlier told InsideSport that he had asked for some personal time off.

KL Rahul is already under fire for his lukewarm form. He was one of the stars who did not fire in T20 World Cup. In that context, the Bangladesh series will be crucial.

“KL has asked for some personal time off. That is why he is not playing in New Zealand. He does not have any injury concerns or a break. He has some family commitments. I am not aware if he is getting married or engaged but yes, he has some personal commitment is what I can tell you,” a BCCI official told InsideSport earlier.

As he has taken a break from the NewZealand series, Rahul is busy with his wedding preparations. He recently visited Kukke Subrahmanya temple in Mangalore temple in Mangaluru.

But on Wednesday, he will leave for Dhaka along with Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and other teammates. India will begin practice from Thursday.

Immediately after the Test series against Bangladesh, Team India will return home for the SriLanka series. However, with focus on ODIs and Tests, it is unlikely that top players including Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli besides Rishabh Pant will take part. Instead, Hardik Pandya is likely to be tasked with leading the squad again.

But a lot will depend on the incoming selection committee. The new selection committee will be in charge of selection for the SriLanka series. If they decide to have Rohit and Virat both play in the T20 series, it could change.

Big Decisions for New Selection Committee:

  • Player rotation.
  • Decision on split captaincy
  • Decision on split coaching for T20s
  • Decision on elevating Hardik Pandya as full-time T20 captain
  • Planning for World Cup 2023 and 2024.
