Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul said that he is happy to be back to action and lead the team in the fourth match of the IPL 2024 against Rajasthan Royals at Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Sunday, March 24.

Rahul was out of action after suffering from a quadriceps injury during the five-match Test series against England. In the first Test in Hyderabad, the 31-year-old complained of pain on his right quadriceps. Initially, Rahul was ruled out of the second Test in Vizag but later, he withdrew from the series as he was yet to recover from the injury.

Ahead of his return to action for IPL 2024, KL Rahul received clearance certificate from the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru after undergoing rehabilitation and training.

"I'm happy to be back on the field, injury has become my best friend over the last couple of years, but it makes you hungry and perform much better when you're back." he added.
