Why is Riley Meredith not playing MI vs RCB IPL 2023 match?

The big news development coming from the Mumbai Indians (MI) camp is that they have dropped overseas pacer Riley Meredith for their 11th game of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) season against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) being hosted at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Things did not worked out really well for the Mumbai Indians recently in this 16th edition of the IPL as they conceded a poor 8-wicket loss at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in their previous match. MI are currently languishing at the 8th position on the points table with a total of 5 wins and as many losses in IPL 2023 so far.

MI vs RCB IPL 2023: Why is Riley Meredith Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?

After winning the toss and opting to bowl first, the Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma stated that Riley Meredith is not part of the MI playing XI for this MI vs RCB match on Tuesday. The lanky Australian fast bowler is not even included in the five substitute members out of which one can be drafted as the Impact Player at any moment in the match. It is still not clear whether the pacer is struggling with some kind of injury issue or not. Meredith has featured in a total of 5 matches for the Mumbai Indians in this T20 competition so far where he has taken as many as 7 wickets at a really expensive economy rate of close to 11.

“We are going to bowl first. It’s been good for us, we have chased down targets here, it’s a good pitch. Looks like a typical Mumbai pitch with even grass covering and also a few patches. Not sure how it’s going to play, but we are hoping for the best. We understand the importance of this game, but what’s in our control is in our control. We need to play good cricket, rest will take care of itself. Archer is out, we got Jordan, he will make his debut today,” said Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma during the toss.
