India batsman KL Rahul, who underwent an appendicitis surgery earlier this month, shared a few pictures of himself on Instagram. The first image shows the wicketkeeper-batsman doing light exercise with a kettlebell, while the second image shows him relaxing. The third and the last image, clicked in monochrome, captured Rahul from close up, giving a candid pose. The post with the caption “And still, we rise” became a massive hit among his followers, receiving over 5 lakh likes within an hour. Bollywood actor Athiya Shetty was among many who flooded the post with their comments.
Unlike many others, Athiya decided not to use any words and instead left a smile emoji in the comments section.
In April, Athiya has posted a message for the Indian cricketer on his 29th birthday. Sharing a couple of mirror selfies, with Karnataka cricketer Athiya wrote: “Grateful for you, happy birthday”.
KL Rahul, who was last seen leading Punjab Kings during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, was diagnosed with acute appendicitis during the tournament and was admitted to a hospital.
Rahul, who opens the batting for the Punjab-based outfit in the cash-rich league, missed their last league game against Delhi Capitals and Mayank Agarwal took over the captaincy duties. A couple of days later, the tournament was indefinitely postponed mid-season after several COVID-19 cases emerged inside the bio-bubble of multiple franchises.
KL Rahul, who is yet to fully recover from after his surgery, has been named in India’s Test squad for World Test Championship final and the subsequent five-Test series against England but his availability is subject to fitness clearance.
