RCB vs KKR: Why is Shardul Thakur Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

In what seems to be yet another shocking decision from KKR team management, Indian all-rounder Shardul Thakur has been excluded from the eleven for the second game in a row. It’s his bowling which has been under the pump this season, but the right-hand batter has already scored a fifty in this season. Despite his heroics with the bat, KKR has not included Shardul Thakur in the playing 11 and is replaced with an extra batter in Narayan Jagadeesan. Check out what Kolkata Knight Riders’ skipper Nitish Rana said at the toss,

“Second half of the tournament has started, it’s an important game. We’ve played some good cricket, some not so good. It’s time to step up. If we play well collectively, the result will be in our favour. In previous games, we’ve had forced changes. Shardul had a niggle, Gurbaz had a niggle. We were going to bat. One change from the last match – Vaibhav Arora comes in for Kulwant.”
