MI vs PBKS: Why is Sikandar Raza Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

Punjab Kings have once again left out Zimbabwean all-rounder Sikandar Raza from their playing 11. Raza who was adjudged the Man of the Match in Punjab’s third win of the season against LSG, has not played a game since then. He is included among the substitute players in this game and Punjab are only playing with 3 foreigners. This means, Raza has a chance to get into the eleven at any stage of the game. Check what Punjab’s stand-in skipper Sam Curran said at the toss,

“Back to back games and not much time to think about it. No Shikhar, that’s why I am here but he’s recovering and should be back soon. Great opportunity for the others to put their hand and we are going with the same team. Lot of close games for us. We would have bowled as well, that is the trend but hopefully we do well. Have a good powerplay and then take it from there.”
