Rahul had to also the miss the entire multi-format tour of England.
Talking about Jhulan, she has not featured in a competitive game since the 2022 Women’s Cricket World Cup.

However, she was not in the squad for the ODI series against Sri Lanka last month and was rested for the Women’s T20 challenge too.
