Lucknow Super Giants, gearing up for the upcoming Indian Premier League season, have made a strategic move by appointing Nicholas Pooran as the vice-captain under the leadership of KL Rahul. The announcement comes amidst speculation about Rahul’s fitness, with the star player currently sidelined due to an injury sustained during the Test series against England.

Rahul’s absence from the final Test has raised questions about his availability for the early matches of the IPL, prompting the team management to designate Nicolas Pooran as the vice-captain, potentially preparing him to lead the team in Rahul’s absence. This decision reflects the team’s confidence in Pooran’s leadership abilities and his integral role in the squad.

Rahul’s injury concerns have been a recurring theme, with the player facing multiple setbacks in the past. His latest injury setback has further highlighted the need for a strong backup plan, making Pooran’s appointment as vice-captain a strategic move by the team management.

The Lucknow Super Giants, entering their third IPL season, have shown promising performances in the previous editions, reaching the playoffs on both occasions. In the absence of Rahul during the last season, the team was led by Krunal Pandya, showcasing their adaptability and depth in leadership.

As the countdown to the IPL begins, all eyes will be on Lucknow Super Giants and the dynamic duo of KL Rahul and Nicholas Pooran, as they aim to make a mark in the upcoming season of the tournament.
