MI vs RCB IPL 2023: Why is Karn Sharma Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?

The Royal Challengers Bangalore have made a shocking change to their eleven by sidelining leg spinner Karn Sharma. RCB seems t0o have made this as a tactical change depending on the surface and have included medium pacer Vyshak Vijaykumar who is known for varying his pace. Sharma, however, is among the substitutes and could come in as an Impact player in the second innings when RCB bowls.  Here’s what Faf du Plessos said at the toss,

“Generally you chase here because of the nature of this ground. Big score always creates the scoreboard pressure. They have a good batting line-up, hopefully we get wickets in their innings. There are a lot of teams in the race for that third and fourth spot, we need to play good cricket. One change for us, Vyshak comes in for Karn Sharma.”
