KL Rahul will miss the first India vs Sri Lanka cricket Test starting in Galle on July 26. The Bangalore batsman is down with fever but is progressing well, according to a BCCI press release on Monday.

KL Rahul did not travel with the team to Galle and has stayed back in Colombo to recover.

India’s first-choice opener KL Rahul, who is making a comeback from a shoulder injury, is expected to be fit for the second Test against the Sri Lankans in Colombo from August 3.

KL Rahul was sidelined for more than three months after a left shoulder surgery in April. He missed the IPL, ICC Champions Trophy and the series in the West Indies series.

The right-handed opening batsman had hit a solid half-century in the two-day warm-up game against a Sri Lanka Board President’s XI.
