KL Rahul was missing the playing eleven when Nicholas Pooran walked out for Lucknow Super Giants for the toss against Punjab Kings on Saturday. Pooran won the crucial toss and elected to bat first at Ekana Cricket Stadium. 

Pooran revealed that KL Rahul is returning from an injury and the management is considering him playing as an impact player against Punjab Kings. 

“We’ll bat first,” Nicholas Pooran said. “Looks like a good track, runs on the board could be vital. KL is coming back from injury and we’re looking to give him a break in such a long tournament, but he’ll play as an impact player today. Everyone must take the opportunities and perform at their best.”
