Indian wicket-keeper batter KL Rahul has been appointed as the vice-captain of Team India for the remainder of the 2023 World Cup after Hardik Pandya was ruled out of the tournament due to an ankle injury.
“The BCCI has appointed KL Rahul as the vice-captain of the Indian team for the remainder of the World Cup. He was informed about it on Saturday morning by chairman of the selection committee, Ajit Agarkar, who is travelling with the team,” a BCCI official told The Indian Express.
Throughout the 2023 ODI World Cup, KL Rahul has been the linchpin of India’s middle order, preventing collapses on multiple occasions. He has accumulated 237 runs from six games at a strike rate of 82.
