In a crucial news development, the Rajasthan Royals (RR) are surprisingly not playing their middle-order batsman Riyan Parag in their fourth game of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) season against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) being played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The Rajasthan Royals will definitely be feeling very much high on confidence as they are coming into this encounter on the back of an excellent 57-run victory against Delhi Capitals in the last game of the T20 competition. The Sanju Samson-led RR team also started off IPL 2023 with a big win over Sunrisers Hyderabad.
CSK vs RR: Why is Riyan Parag Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?
During the toss, Rajasthan Royals skipper Sanju Samson revealed that swashbuckling batsman Riyan Parag is not included in the RR Playing 11 for this CSK vs RR IPL 2023 match on Wednesday. However, Parag is absolutely fit and he is part of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an impact player at any moment in the game. The right-handed middle-order batsman has failed to contribute much for the Rajasthan Royals in IPL 2023 so far having scored just 34 runs from 3 games. The Rajasthan Royals have instead included Devdutt Padikkal in the playing 11 for this game against Chennai Super Kings.
“We would have liked to bowl first too. We have started well but we need to continue the momentum. We are playing at Chepauk after a long time. We have experience and the youngsters to do that. It has always been a pleasure to come to Chepauk and play here. Boulty misses out due to a small niggle and we have a couple of changes, you will come to know that. It’s difficult to keep track with the sub rule,” said Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson during the toss.
