He captioned the post: “Hello everyone. It's been a tough couple of weeks but the surgery was successful. I’m healing and recovering well. My road to recovery has begun.

The BCCI flew KL Rahul out to Germany for treatment on his injured groin, forcing him out of the entire tour of England, starting on July 1. He was accompanied to Germany by his girlfriend and Bollywood star Athiya Shetty.
Athiya Shetty showered love on beau KL Rahul as he had a successful surgery. In the picture, he could be seen smiling widely as he sat on a bed, with his face facing to his side. Sharing the photo, he updated his fans, friends, and followers that his surgery has been successful and that he is now healing.
Athiya has been visiting museums in Germany and spending quality time in Europe as Rahul prepared for his surgery, as can been on the Bollywood star’s Instagram story.
Incidentally, it was in England that Rahul made a comeback to the Indian Test team last year. Forming a solid opening combination with Rohit Sharma, the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) skipper compiled 315 runs, including a memorable century at Lord's.
Rahul recently captained first-timers LSG to the playoffs of IPL 2022, where they fell short to the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Eliminator. It remains to be seen how long the rehabilitation and recovery period will be post his surgery though.
