Ajinkya Rahane set to miss IPL 2022, India’s England tour due to injury, senior hitter hitting blow

But Rahane is now set to miss it all because the veteran batsman has suffered a Grade 3 hamstring injury, which he suffered in KKR’s previous IPL 2022 match against Sunrisers Hyderabad.

SRH had lost that game heavily and found themselves in a tight spot in the playoff race with 10 points in 12 games. If they lose the game against Mumbai Indians on Tuesday May 17, they will be knocked out of the playoff race.

Back at KKR, they also have a shot at making the playoffs after recording 12 points in 13 games. KKR play their final league game against Lucknow Super Giants on Wednesday, May 18, and the game is vital for both teams in their efforts to make the playoffs.

But Rahane will not be part of this critical match and he is set to leave the KKR bio-bubble on Monday night (May 16), a report from Cricbuzz said.

KKR skipper Shreyas Iyer said he would approach the game against Lucknow with a free spirit.

“The spirit we found in that game (against SRH), it was exceptional. All the boys did the right thing, played cricket without fear. Everything went very well,” Iyer said after the game.

“We have nothing to lose now. We haven’t played our A game yet, that’s what I talked about today before the game,” Iyer said.

“We were going over it. The plan was to give Russell the strike as much as possible. We knew Washi (Washington Sundar) had one over there, that was the one we were going to aim for. It worked pretty well, hopefully it will work in the last game as well,” said the skipper.
