3 players whom RCB might mostly use as ‘Impact Substitution’

The ‘Impact Player’ rule will be a vital tactic for teams in IPL 2023. This might essentially even single-handedly define the outcome of a few games. Therefore, teams will be careful about how they will use this tactic. Royal Challengers Bangalore is one franchise that has been brilliant with its strategies in recent years. Hence, a lot will be curious about how they would go about this rule. On that note, here, we take a look at three players whom RCB might mostly use as ‘Impact Substitution’ in IPL 2023.

1) Rajat Patidar

Rajat Patidar will bat at No.3 for RCB after his success last season. Since he does not offer bowling importance, he could be a player whom RCB might substitute if the team is batting first.

Also on the field, Patidar is a decent fielder but is not specifically known for his acrobatic skills. While batting first, if RCB loses some early wickets including that of Rajat, in this scenario, too, the Indore-based cricketer can be taken off.


2) Avinash Singh Manhas

Avinash Singh is one of the players whom RCB might mostly use as an ‘Impact Substitution’ in IPL 2023. One aspect that is lacking in RCB’s bowling unit is raw pace.

Jammu and Kashmir cricketer Avinash Singh, going by the videos, seems to fill this void. RCB does not have a dependable medium-pace bowling all-rounder and this further explains why he is on this list.

3) Suyash Prabhudessai

If RCB is batting second, they are sure to remove one bowler and get one batter for the second innings. In this scenario, Goa’s Suyash Prabhudessai is a good option for the franchise.


The player has been doing well in the recent months and deserves more opportunities. He showed a hint of his potential in the last edition and the management would hope to tap it further in IPL 2023.
