Just hours before the Kings start the game against the Delhi Capitals in Ahmedabad last Sunday, the team announced that Rahul had complained of severe abdominal pain on Saturday. The last time Rahul played was on April 30, where his unbeaten 91 runs gave the team a fantastic win over Royal Challengers Bangalore. Rahul is also among the highest scorers in the tournament so far. He has scored 331 runs in seven innings at an average of 66.20 and a strike rate of 136.21, including four fifties. Punjab will soon need Rahul on the field to be in the top four in the second half of the group matches. Currently, Punjab are sixth with three wins from eight matches.
