LSG vs RCB IPL 2022: Is Harshal Patel Playing Today? Here’s the update


Harshal Patel LSG vs RCB IPL 2022: It has been a season of so many twist and turns for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Indian Premier League (IPL 2022). From getting bowled out for a paltry total of 68 runs to qualifying for the playoffs by just a whisker,  RCB have witnessed a total of 8 victories out of their 14 league stage matches. After having qualified for the playoffs for the last 3 IPL seasons in a row, the Royal Challengers Bangalore will surely have their eyes set on their maiden title as they are one of the most experienced teams in this knockouts stage.

Incidentally, during the previous game against Gujarat Titans, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s premier pacer Harshal Patel suffered a split webbing on his right hand while fielding at the short extra cover region. He had to leave the field to get the webbing stitched and unfortunately failed to return back in time. Harshal even could not complete his quota of four overs having bowled just a single over in that match where he conceded just six runs.

“When I caught that ball on short extra cover, I split my webbing on the right hand. I got a couple of stitches which should come off in three to four days… I think I will be ready to be a part of it (Eliminator),” said Harshal Patel as quoted by News18.

Ahead of the important Eliminator game against Lucknow Super Giants, Harshal Patel noted that he will be ready with complete match fitness to make an impact for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Also, Harshal has bowled impressively well this season of the IPL but in patches as he has picked up as many as 18 wickets from 13 games at a brilliant economy of 7.38.
