Many Indians were ruled out of IPL 2023. While a few players such as Jasprit Bumrah and Shreyas Iyer have already made their comeback, a few players had to wait for a longer time. Now, the 2023 edition of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy has started. With this tournament, many players are making a comeback. On that note, here, we take a look at two Indians ruled out of IPL 2023 who are making a comeback with Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2023.
1) Rajat Patidar
Rajat Patidar was a major miss for RCB in IPL 2023. With him absent at No.3, the team struggled to find a good slot in this role. Eventually, this played a role as RCB lost some crucial games and had to exit from the tournament. For Rajat, it was a big loss, as well, as a strong performance in IPL could have given him a chance to play in the 2023 ODI World Cup.
Nevertheless, Rajat still has a chance to make a comeback to Team India. He will play for Madhya Pradesh in the ongoing SMAT 2023. He will look to have a good tournament so that he can get into the scheme of things as quickly as possible.
2) Raj Bawa
Raj Bawa is one of the Indians ruled out of IPL 2023 who are making a comeback with Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2023. Young cricketer Raj Bawa missed out on IPL 2023. He was expected to play a few games for Punjab Kings in the tournament.
A young and talented all-rounder, he would certainly be a strong candidate to play for India in the future. For that, he should work on his game and show his skills in both departments of the game. India would soon want to groom a proper backup for Hardik Pandya and Raj Bawa could be one of the players in the queue.
