KKR vs RR: Why is Suyash Sharma Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match? Check KKR Playing 11
Updated on: May 11, 2023 10:04 pm IST
Interestingly, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have once again kept young leg-spinner Suyash Sharma out of their starting XI for their 12th encounter of Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) being hosted at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Things have panned out in an ideal manner for the Kolkata Knight Riders recently in the Indian Premier League 2023 season as they have managed to beat both Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad in successive matches. It will now be important for KKR to continue this winning momentum further in the business end of the competition as well.
KKR vs RR: Why is Suyash Sharma Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?
During the toss, it was mentioned that Suyash Sharma is not included in the starting KKR playing 11 for today’s KKR vs RR match. Interestingly, he is once again part of the substitute members list out of which one can come in as an Impact Player at any moment in the encounter. After having made his IPL debut for the Kolkata Knight Riders this year in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, the youngster has bowled really well having taken as many as 10 wickets from 8 games at a brilliant economy of 8.06. Thus, the right-arm leg spinner is very much likely to be drafted as the Impact Player in the second innings as the pitch definitely has some help for the spinners.
“I think we’re getting the type of pitches we want. We will have to play good cricket, take one game at a time and earn 2 points. One change for us – Anukul Roy replaces Vaibhav Arora. Looks like the pitch is dry, they haven’t watered a lot, so we are playing that extra spinner and add some depth to the batting,” said Kolkata Knight Riders captain Nitish Rana during the toss.
