Kagiso Rabada Not Playing PBKS vs KKR IPL 2023

In a crucial news development, Punjab Kings (PBKS) premier pace bowler Kagiso Rabada will be unavailable for their opening match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) being hosted at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. Things have not worked out in an ideal manner for the Punjab Kings during the last few editions of the Indian Premier League as they have not qualified for the playoffs for a long while now. The Punjab Kings finished at the sixth spot on the points table during IPL 2022.

It will be a huge setback for the Punjab Kings as their premier overseas speedster Kagiso Rabada will not be playing their first match of IPL 2023 against Kolkata Knight Riders on Saturday. The right-arm fast bowler is currently part of the ongoing South Africa vs Netherlands ODI series and will only be available in IPL 2023 after 2 April, 2023. In his first season for the Punjab Kings during IPL 2022, Rabada ended up taking as many as 23 wickets from 13 matches at an economy of less than 9 that included a couple of four-wicket hauls as well. However, Punjab Kings will have the service of right-arm pacer Nathan Ellis as an overseas player in the absence of Kagiso Rabada.
