Mumbai Indians are eyeing a spot in the playoffs and are taking on the reigning champions Gujarat Titans in match no 57 of Tata IPL 2023 at the Wankhede Stadium. Mumbai have been winning games and as expected haven’t made any changes to their eleven. What this also means is Tilak Varma is still unfit and not included in the eleven.
MI vs RCB IPL 2023: Why is Tilak Varma Not Playing Today’s Match IPL?
For the third match in a row, Mumbai’s young talented batter Tilak Varma is not included in the eleven. The left-hander is nursing a hamstring injury and is yet to recover. With Nehal Wadhera settling down comfortably in the eleven, MI may not miss the services of Tilak, however, he still remains a vital cog in MI’s setup once he returns regaining full fitness. Here’s what Rohit Sharma said at the toss,
“We would have done the same thing, we need to bat and bowl really well. Things are coming along nicely in the last few games. We understand where we stand at the moment, just focus on the game in hand. It’s not been ideal in terams of injury management, but we’ll have to deal with it and that’s what the guys have done. We’ve spoken about not letting external factors affect us. We’re playing with the same squad as the last game”
