Why David Willey is not playing LSG vs RCB match 43

In an important news update, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have dropped left-arm pacer David Wiley for their fourth encounter of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) against the Delhi Capitals (DC) being played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. It will be really important for the Royal Challengers Bangalore to make a strong fightback after having witnessed two disappointing defeats in their previous two matches against Kolkata Knight Riders and Lucknow Super Giants. However, RCB had an impressive start with an incredible win over Mumbai Indians.

RCB vs DC: Why is David Willey Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

After having lost the toss and being asked to bat first, the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis revealed that David Wiley is not included in the RCB playing XI in today’s RCB vs DC IPL 2023 match. This only seems to be a tactical decision as the England left-arm pacer is absolutely fit and part of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the game. However, the Royal Challengers Bangalore cannot use Wiley ass an Impact Player because they are already playing four overseas players in Wanindu Hasaranga, Glenn Maxwell, Wayne Parnell and Faf du Plessis. Even after taking two crucial wickets in the match against Kolkata Knight Riders, Wiley had to make way for Hasaranga in the side as the Sri Lankan spinner ended up taking 26 wickets from 16 games in IPL 2022.

“Would have done the same. Hopefully it will turn in the second innings. This stays a good wicket generally. Will be important for me and Virat to assess the conditions early. It’s difficult to defend in death overs. We have been good at our home ground as a batting unit. You got to pick your best batters and bowlers. Hasaranga comes in for Willey,” said Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis during the toss.
