Time and again, India’s swashbuckling batsman KL Rahul has made headlines for his love life. The ace batter is often linked with veteran Suniel Shetty’s daughter and Bollywood diva Athiya Shetty. Though Rahul hardly gives anything away and tries to keep his personal life under the wraps, almost everyone in the cricket fraternity is aware of his love affair. 

The fans have always been curious regarding the relationship between Rahul and Athiya. Rahul is with the Indian team for the final of the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship against New Zealand followed by a five-match Test against England. Thus, the cricket fans are looking for clues to know whether Athiya is also with Rahul in the United Kingdom (UK). 

Notably, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has allowed all the players to travel with their families to the UK for a four-month-long tour. On June 8, Tuesday, the Bollywood Diva shared a monochrome picture. In the snap, Athiya is striking a stylish pose for the camera with the shades of greenery and barricades in the backdrop. 

Similar background in the pictures?

Though the actress posted a black and white photograph, the netizens were smart enough to notice that the background was similar to the one where the Indian team is currently residing in Southampton. A similar background further sparked the news of Athiya being in the UK with Rahul.

KL Rahul last played competitive cricket during IPL 2021

The right-handed batsman KL Rahul last featured in a competitive match during the India leg of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Rahul was one of the highest run-scorers in IPL 2021 and was enjoying a fine ride while leading his franchise Punjab Kings. However, he was forced to miss the last game of the Kings in the tournament as he underwent appendicitis surgery earlier this month.

KL forms a part of the 24-member squad announced by BCCI for the England tour. However, the chances of Rahul playing the final are extremely slim as there are no vacant places in the Indian contingent. India will square off against the Blackcaps from June 18 to June 22 in the WTC final.
