Overseas players availability isn’t a concern for RCB at the start of the season as many of their overseas picks are available right from the opening game. However, the same cannot be said for star Sri Lankan all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga. The leggy will most probably be involved in the T20I series against New Zealand until April 8. There’s still a question mark over his availability in the first week of IPL 2023. We will have to wait until Sri Lanka name their T20I squad. Check out RCB Playing 11 below,

1. Faf du Plessis (C)
2. Finn Allen 
3. Virat Kohli
4. Glenn Maxwell
5. Mahipal Lomror
6. Dinesh Karthik (wk)
7. Shahbaz Ahmed
8. Harshal Patel
9. Josh Hazlewood
10. Mohammad Siraj
11. Karn Sharma

  • Will Jacks, who was picked up by RCB in this year’s auction, will be missing the entire season due to injury. New Zealand’s all-rounder Michael Bracewell has been named as his replacement.
  • RCB’s breakout star from the last season Rajat Patidar is doubtful for the first half due to a heel injury. He has joined the RCB camp but may not start in the first game.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga may not be available in the first week of the season as he may play the T20I series against New Zealand.
  • If Rajat Patidar doesn’t starts, New Zealand’s opener Finn Allen could make his RCB debut after two long years and open the innings with skipper Faf du Plessis.
  • Virat Kohli will bat at no 3 followed by Glenn Maxwell, Mahipal Lomror, and Dinesh Karthik.
  • Shahbaz Ahmed will be the all-round option.
  • The bowling unit may include Harshal Patel, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammad Siraj and Karn Sharma.
