RCB vs CSK: Why is Sisanda Magala Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

Unfortunately, the South African seamer Sisanda Magala injured his hand and is out of the playing 11 of CSK in RCB vs CSK IPL 2023 match. Sisanda injured his hand while taking catch of Ravichandran Ashwin who got dismissed for 30 off 22 deliveries. There is no clarity when Magala will return to the field again, but he is definitely not playing this game. Here’s what MS Dhoni said at the toss,

“The toss does matter because this is a venue where it is difficult to contain batters in the second innings. And not to forget dew. I think what’s important is not looking ahead, maybe 180-200 is a par score but we need to keep re-evaluating every 3-4 overs on where we stand and what would be a good total to get to. That is a better way to approach, rather than keeping a total in mind. One change – Magala is injured and Pathirana comes in. The good think is all the players who have come in to replace guys have performed well. But these injuries haven’t been ideal, but that’s what happens because the IPL comes at the end of the cricket season.”
