why Rahul Chahar Not Playing today

The important news update coming from the Punjab Kings (PBKS) camp is that they are not playing their premier leg-spinner Rahul Chahar in their fourth game of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Gujarat Titans (GT) taking place at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.

PBKS vs GT: Why is Rahul Chahar Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

The Punjab Kings have interesting dropped leg-spinner Rahul Chahar from the PBKS Playing XI for this PBKS vs GT IPL 2023 match on Thursday. However, Chahar is absolutely fit and he is part of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the game. Incidentally, the right-arm leg spinner has taken just a couple of wickets from 3 matches so far in IPL 2023 season at an impressive economy of less than 8. It is very much likely that the Punjab Kings will bring back Rahul Chahar as an Impact Player in the second innings. PBKS have instead included right-arm pacer Rishi Dhawan in the side for this game.

“Doesn’t bother us. Were looking to bowl first. We have been playing good cricket. Quite normal to go through this in cricket. Won’t be the first time or the last (loss against SRH). Looking forward to put up a great show. Two changes – Rabada coming in for Nathan. Bhanuka coming in for Raza,” said Punjab Kings captain Shikhar Dhawan during the toss.
