Replacement for IPL 2023: Decision Week, Sandeep Sharma expected to replace Prasidh Krishna, MI, PBKS, DC & KKR pressing for last-minute REPLACEMENTS, Follow LIVE Updates


Replacement for IPL 2023 :With only one week left, franchisees are finalising signing agreements with replacements. The Rajasthan Royals now have Sandeep Sharma on staff.

Franchises are making last-minute arrangements to sign replacements with only one week to go. Prasidh Krishna’s potential replacement, Sandeep Sharma, has joined the Rajasthan Royals team.

Soon, a choice will be made regarding him. Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals, on the other hand, are still scrambling to find suitable replacements for Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant.

There aren’t many capable successors for the two superstars now that both are out of the IPL 16 competition. Kolkata Knight Riders are also having a problem with Shreyas Iyer at the moment.

Up to ten players are injured, and the first week of play will be missed by several South African, Bangladeshi, and Sri Lankan talents. Although it is yet unknown, both England and Australia Test players will depart the IPL before the playoffs because to their commitments to their national teams.

They won’t be replaced, but those who will miss the full tournament will need competent substitutes.

Mumbai Indians: Mumbai Indians have been particularly hard struck in the pace area. After having back surgery, their vice-captain and star, Jasprit Bumrah, is no longer participating in the event. Jhye Richardson represents the other. The Australian fast will also be out due to a hamstring problem. Only 7 days remain, and MI has not yet announced any replacements.

Rajasthan Royals: In order to fill the void left by Prasidh Krishna’s long-term injury, RR have recalled veteran Sandeep Sharma. He is undergoing tests while in the RR camp.

Prasidh will likely be replaced by him. Nevertheless, Obed McCoy might be the other person to lose out. A substitute for the Windies star has not yet been named by RR.

Delhi Capitals: Rishabh Pant’s injury is the greatest breaking news. The tragic automobile tragedy is still having an adverse effect on the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman. He has started to walk, but he hasn’t yet returned to cricket. David Warner will serve as DC’s captain in the interim, but more significantly, DC lacks a wicketkeeper.

The team only has one keeper, Phil Salt. But, DC need to replace Indian wicketkeeper Pant. This week, it is anticipated that the replacement would be announced by head coach Ricky Ponting and director Sourav Ganguly.

Who can step in for Jonny Bairstow for the Punjab Kings? possibly nobody. Punjab Kings, who are still recovering from a freak golf accident, have been struck a severe blow as a result of the England & Wales Cricket Board’s refusal to provide Bairstow a NOC.

The two-time IPL champion Kolkata Knight Riders find themselves in a precarious situation. Captain Shreyas Iyer’s absence from the competition is still up in the air for KKR, and they are unsure if it would be total or partial. Iyer’s absence from IPL 2023’s opening round due to a back issue is unquestionable.

Iyer will miss the entire competition if he undergoes surgery, though. Whilst no choice has yet been finalised, KKR is now in discussions with a number of players about a potential successor. Before picking up the phone, they will wait another week.

Nitish Rana’s injury presented a risk for KKR as well. How serious the injury is, though, is not yet known. While KKR was practising, Rana got hurt.

Chennai Super Kings: Although they have named Sisanda Magala as a substitute for Kyle Jamieson, CSK is still unsure of the health of left-arm seamer Mukesh Choudhary. On this week, CSK will decide what will happen to him.

Kyle Jamieson, a bowler from New Zealand, has been replaced by South African pacer Sisanda Magala for the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023.

The franchise paid INR 1 Crore to acquire Jamieson, who was injured and had to withdraw from the competition.

Magala, who will take his position, is an accomplished player in the game’s shortest form. Magala has only been in four Twenty20 Internationals for South Africa, although he has a history of consistently taking wickets in local Twenty20 matches. With his base salary of INR 50 Lakh, he will sign on with CSK.
