The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) are unfortunately not playing left-arm pace bowler Reece Topley in their second match of Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) season against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) being hosted at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

However, the Royal Challengers Bangalore will now want to build on this winning momentum.
KKR vs RCB: Why is Reece Topley Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?
After winning the toss and opting to bowl first, Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis revealed that Reece Topley is not part of the RCB playing 11 for this KKR vs RCB IPL 2023 match. During the previous game against Mumbai Indians in Bengaluru, the England left-arm pacer sustained a shoulder injury and this is why he has been replaced by his English teammate David Wiley. Reece Topley has been ruled out of IPL 2023.
Before getting injured and leaving the field, Topley bowled a couple of overs having picked up the crucial wicket of Cameron Green. On the other hand, the Royal Challengers Bangalore will be hopeful that Wiley will perform well as he has a lot of experience while playing T20 leagues across the globe.
