The Royal Challengers Bangalore are being hosted by Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. It’s a must-win game for RCB to keep their playoff hopes alive. They have made quite a few changes to their eleven depending on the surface and one such change is the exclusion of experienced batter Kedar Jadhav.
RR vs RCB IPL 2023: Why is Kedar Jadhav Not Playing Today’s IPL Match?
The Royal Challengers Bangalore have replaced Kedar Jadhav with an extra spinner in Karn Sharma. The decision is a tactical one as the pitch is dry and will be assisting the spinners more. Therefore, Kedar is not even among the substitutes and won’t be available as an Impact player. Here’s what Faf du Plessis said at the toss,
“We will have a bat first. The conditions might favor that, looks like a dry wicket. It is very clear from here on for us, that is not a bad thing sometimes. We need to execute better. 3-4 guys are putting their hand up every game, we need a bit more probably to cash in on some good positions. Wins are important, net run rate is not something we can bother about now. I think we crossed that bridge in the last game. Two changes – Parnell coming in for Hazlewood, Bracewell in for Hasaranga.”
