In an important news update, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) will miss their explosive overseas batsman Litton Das during their second encounter of this Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) being played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

KKR vs RCB: Why is Litton Das Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

The Kolkata Knight Riders will once again be taking the field without Litton Das in the KKR vs RCB IPL 2023 match on Thursday. Litton is currently part of the Bangladesh Test team involved in a one-off Test match against Ireland at home and therefore, the right-handed batsman will only be available to participate in the IPL 2023 season after 8 April, 2023. Apart from the poor loss in the first match, the Kolkata Knight Riders have already lost both Shreyas Iyer and Shakib Al Hasan for the remainder of the Indian Premier League 2023 season. Thus, KKR opened the batting with the pair of Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Mandeep Singh in the opening game against Punjab Kings.
