Kagiso Rabada RR vs PBKS IPL 2023

In a massive breaking news update, South Africa’s premier speedster Kagiso Rabada will not be playing for the Punjab Kings (PBKS) in their second league game of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) season against Rajasthan Royals (RR) on 5 April, 2023 at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. Things worked out really well for the Punjab Kings at the start of the Indian Premier League 2023 season as they defeated Kolkata Knight Riders by 7 runs in a rain-truncated encounter. The Punjab Kings will want to continue with this winning momentum further in the tournament as well.

RR vs PBKS: Is Kagiso Rabada Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

The big positive development for the Punjab Kings is that their premier fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has joined the camp and is completely available for the RR vs PBKS IPL 2023 match on Wednesday, but the team has gone against the decision. He missed the opening encounter against Kolkata Knight Riders as he was playing for South Africa in the recently concluded ODI series against Netherlands. In his absence, the Punjab Kings played Aussie right-arm pacer Nathan Ellis in the PBKS playing 11 during the first encounter and he finished with figures of 1 for 27 from his three overs. However, the Punjab Kings have gone ahead with the same side for this crucial game against Rajasthan Royals and this means that Rabada will have to wait for his opportunity.
