Why is Tilak Varma not playing LSG vs MI IPL 2023 match?

The Mumbai Indians (MI) will once again miss the services of their premier batsman Tilak Varma in their 13th match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) season against the Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) taking place at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. Things have worked out impressively well for the Mumbai Indians recently in this IPL 2023 as they have managed to win 4 out of their last 5 matches including two big victories against Gujarat Titans and Royal Challengers Bangalore. MI will be guaranteed a top-two finish on the points table if they win both of their remaining matches in the ongoing T20 competition.

LSG vs MI IPL 2023: Why is Tilak Varma Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?

During the toss, it was noted that Tilak Varma is still not part of the MI playing 11 for today’s LSG vs MI match. It is noteworthy that the southpaw batsman is not among the five substitutes who can be utilized as an Impact Player during the game. Moreover, he was deemed unfit for the previous match against Chennai Super Kings, and it appears that he is still recuperating, as he has not been included in the team for today’s game. In contrast, Tilak has been delivering impressive performances for Mumbai Indians in the ongoing IPL 2023 season, having scored a remarkable total of 274 runs in nine matches, with a superb strike rate of almost 160, including a top score of 84 not out.

“We are gonna bowl first. We know what to expect from the pitch, looks like a good track but not sure how it is gonna play, so better to have a score in front of us. We are up for the challenge. Even the seamers here have been quite effective here, so we got 4 seamers and 2 spinners. Every game is important and anyone can beat anyone on a particular day. We made one change. We have an offie coming in for the left-arm spinner,” said Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma during the toss.
