Injuries List IPL 2023: Many Star Cricketers to Miss the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2033 including Rishabh Pant and Kyle Jamieson . The Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the most awaited T20 cricket tournaments around the globe. As all ten teams gear up for the 16th edition of IPL, which is due to take place from 31 March to 28 May at twelve venues, let’s have a look at players missing out on this popular league this year due to various reasons.
Rishabh Pant (Delhi Capitals)
Delhi Capitals skipper Rishabh Pant suffered injuries in a car accident last year, due to which he is out of action from the start of the year 2023. He will miss IPL 2023 as he is recovering from a life-threatening accident, which means Delhi will miss the services of their hard-hitting wicket-keeper batsman and captain.
Jasprit Bumrah (Mumbai Indians)
Jasprit Bumrah is one of the finest seamers in the cricket world, and his T20 credentials are second to none. However, fans will miss the performance of such a gem of a player from this season of IPL due to a back injury he sustained after the England tour in July. A recent update about the player is he is ruled out of the IPL 2023, and the 29-year-old pacer is racing against time to be fit for the ODI World Cup 2023 at home.
Shreyas Iyer (Kolkata Knight Riders)
Indian batsman and Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Shreyas Iyer was recently sidelined from the ODI series as his back problems resurfaced during the last Test match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. As he is set to miss the first half of the IPL 2023, it put KKR in trouble as they lack a player of the calibre of Iyer in their squad.
Jhye Richardson (Mumbai Indians)
Australian pacer Jhye Richarson was signed by five-time IPL champions Mumbai Indians for Rs.1.5 crores. However, the right-handed swinger will miss the IPL 2023 after undergoing surgery for a hamstring injury. This news is a major blow to Mumbai Indians and their fans as they already lack the services of their premier pacer Bumrah.
Kyle Jamieson (Chennai Super Kings)
New Zealand’s pace-bowling all-rounder Kyle Jamieson is considered a very talented cricketer. However, he is struggling with a back injury so he is set to miss IPL this year. The absence of Jamieson is a big blow to the Chennai Super Kings as he was a crucial part of their squad.
Will Jacks (Royal Challengers Bangalore)
English batsman Will Jacks was signed by RCB for Rs. 3.2 crores. However, the hard-hitting batsman will be unavailable for IPL 2023 as he sustained a thigh injury during England’s ODI series against Bangladesh. This injury is a setback for RCB as Jacks was considered a trump card in their batting line-up due to his aggressive stroke play.
Prasidh Krishna (Rajasthan Royals)
Rajasthan Royals pacer Prasidh Krishna will miss this season of IPL due to this longstanding problem with his back. The 26-year-old pacer is out of action since last August 2023. He is a vital part of the Royals’ pace contingent, and the youngster is undergoing rehabilitation after a stress fracture surgery.
Apart from these players, some key players like Jonny Bairstow (Punjab Kings) and Anrich Nortje (Delhi Capitals) are not confirmed to take part in IPL 2023 due to their fitness problems.
