Why is Johnson Charles not playing CSK vs KKR IPL 2023 match?

In a crucial news development, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are still not playing overseas batsman Johnson Charles for their 13th game of Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) taking place at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The Kolkata Knight Riders ended up losing by a margin of 9 wickets during their previous match against Rajasthan Royals and this loss has dented KKR’s chances of qualifying for the IPL 2023 playoffs.

CSK vs KKR IPL 2023: Why is Johnson Charles Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?

During the toss, it was stated that Johnson Charles was once again left out of KKR playing 11 for today’s CSK vs KKR match. Incidentally, he is not even part of the five substitutes out of which one can come in as an Impact Player at any moment in the match. Charles has recently joined the Kolkata Knight Riders as a replacement player for Litton Das, who had to leave the tournament midway due to an emergency. While Charles is now part of the KKR squad, it is unclear when he will get a chance to play. Currently, the team’s opening batsmen are Jason Roy and Rahmanullah Gurbaz, both of whom are overseas players.

“Would have liked to bat first as well. The deck looks sticky, so would have wanted to bat first and get our spinners in play. I think pressure was there in the first game as well, it is there now as well. Such is the IPL, we can’t take it lightly. If any department falters, then 90% the result goes against you. So we need to be clinical in all departments. One change for us – Anukul Roy goes out, Vaibhav Arora comes in,” said Kolkata Knight Riders captain Nitish Rana during the toss.
