Sarfaraz Khan Not Playing RR vs DC IPL 2023

In an important news update, the Delhi Capitals (DC) have dropped middle-order batsman Sarfaraz Khan from the playing XI for their second encounter of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023)  season against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) being hosted at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. After not having qualified for the playoffs last year in IPL 2022, the Delhi Capitals have suffered two consecutive disappointing losses in the ongoing T20 tournament at the hands of Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans so far. Delhi Capitals desperately need to find ways to gain the winning momentum.

RR vs DC: Why is Sarfaraz Khan Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match? Who is DC Wicket Keeper?

During the toss, Delhi Capitals skipper David Warner stated that they are not playing Sarfaraz Khan in this RR vs DC IPL 2023 match on Saturday. However, Sarfaraz is part of the five substitute members out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in this game. During the last encounter against Gujarat Titans, the right-handed batsman scored 30 runs off 34 balls and dropped a few chances behind the wickets in the first match against Lucknow Super Giants. Therefore, Delhi Capitals are playing young Abhishek Porel as the wicket-keeper batsman in the side alongside the duo of Manish Pandey and Rovman Powell. They have also brought in spin bowling all-rounder Lalit Yadav for this match.

“Don’t know what’s gonna happen. Hopefully we will start well. Marsh has gone home to get married. All the best to him. There is one forced change with Powell coming in for Marsh. There are changes. Lalit comes in as well for Sarfraz. Manish Pandey comes in,” said Delhi Capitals captain David Warner during the toss.
