Updated on: Apr 20, 2023 3:24 pm IST
In a crucial news update, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will once again be playing without their senior overseas pacer Josh Hazlewood in their sixth encounter of Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) being played at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. Things have not worked out really well recently for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the ongoing T20 competition as they ended up suffering a disappointing 8-run loss at the hands of Chennai Super Kings in their last game and RCB have now lost as many as three games in IPL 2023.
PBKS vs RCB: Why is Josh Hazlewood Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?
Australia’s pace bowler Josh Hazlewood is still not part of the RCB playing 11 in today’s PBKS vs RCB IPL 2023 match. However, the lanky fast bowler has already joined the Royal Challengers Bangalore camp after missing the initial phase of Indian Premier League 2023 season due to an Achilles injury. Hazlewood has not been seen bowling much in the nets during the last two training sessions and it is reported that he is yet to attain complete fitness. It is still uncertain as to when will Josh be available for selection in the IPL 2023 for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Royal Challengers Bangalore are currently playing left-arm pacer Wayne Parnell as their overseas fast bowler in the side.

Hazlewood proved his mettle by taking 20 wickets in just 12 matches, with an economy rate of less than 9, making him a valuable asset to the team. Due to his impressive performance, RCB has decided to retain the talented bowler for IPL 2023.
