The 30-year-old was ruled out of the season after suffering a ‘bad hamstring injury’ while playing against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Kolkata did not qualify for the playoffs.
“That (injury) was really unfortunate. But my rehab is going really well. I am recovering really well. I was in Bangalore (at the NCA) for nearly 10 days and I am going there again for my rehab and recovery. It’s been on track,” Rahane told PTI.
The India Test veteran was picked by KKR for Rs 1 crore in the mega-auction. He scored 133 runs from seven matches.
“So right now my only focus is on getting better. Get fit as soon as possible and be on the field. I am not sure (when) I will be able to get (fully) fit, it is expected to be around 6-8 weeks but at this moment it is about taking one day at a time, one week at a time,” he said.
Rahane further said that Kolkata provided a family atmosphere to the players.
“My experience with KKR was really good. I really enjoyed playing for KKR and the atmosphere there was really good. It is kind of a family atmosphere. We enjoyed each other’s success on and off the field but unfortunately we couldn’t qualify for the play-offs. They (KKR team management) gave me a lot of freedom to play my game and I thought it was something special. Playing under (then KKR head coach) Brendon McCullum, I learnt a lot.” Rahane,” he added.
