Wayne Parnell Not Playing RCB vs RR IPL 2023

In a big news development, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have dropped their overseas pace bowler Wayne Parnell in their seventh game of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) season against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) being played at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The Royal Challengers Bangalore performed really well in their last game of the ongoing T20 tournament as they defeated Punjab Kings by 24 runs in an away match. However, RCB will be looking forward to gain some winning consistency in IPL 2023.

RCB vs RR: Why is Wayne Parnell Not Playing Today’s Match IPL? 

After having lost the toss and being put in to bat first, the Royal Challengers Bangalore stand-in captain Virat Kohli mentioned that left-arm pacer Wayne Parnell is not part of the RCB playing XI in this RCB vs RR IPL 2023 match on Sunday. This seems to be a tactical change as the Royal Challengers Bangalore have brought in left-arm pacer David Wiley as the like-for-like replacement. While making his debut for RCB in IPL 2023, Parnell has picked up as many as 6 wickets from 4 matches at an expensive economy rate of close to 10.

“It was pretty easy to choose, we’d have batted first. This wicket looks dry and it will get drier and might break up first. I didn’t say that to Sanju, but I’m very happy to bat first. We both get to do what we wanted. They informed me last time saying I might have to captain a couple of games, nothing I’m not used to doing. So I’m happy to step in, ready to continue from whatever Faf has been doing. The team has responded well, we are playing with a lot of energy and that showed in the last game. One change for us, Wayne Parnell is out and he will be replaced by David Willey. Faf continues to play as an impact sub,” said Royal Challengers Bangalore stand-in captain Virat Kohli during the toss.
