Before every campaign, it is usual to witness a few cricketers getting injured. This is the same before IPL 2023, too. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of the injured players and their replacements for IPL 2023.
List of injured players and their replacements for IPL 2023
Jasprit Bumrah is a high-profile cricketer who will miss IPL 2023. He recently underwent surgery and will be out of action for a while. Along with Bumrah, Rishabh Pant is also a big name that will miss the tournament. The Delhi Capitals cricketer was involved in an accident a few months ago and the player is still recovering from it. In both cases, the teams are yet to name a replacement.
Jhye Richardson, Kyle Jamieson, Prasidh Krishna and Will Jacks are the other players who will not play in IPL 2023. So far, RCB is the only franchise that has announced a replacement for their injured cricketer. They have got onboard Michael Bracewell as the replacement for English cricketer Will Jacks.

An exciting season ahead
Every season of IPL promises to be an exciting and it is no different for IPL 2023. This time around, the dynamics of the ‘Impact Player’ rule will also be in action and that would change the tactics and strategies of the franchises.
Last season was the first edition after the mega-auction. Teams might not have had sufficient time to make amends for the mistakes they might have made at the bidding table. However, the franchises have prepared well now and therefore, we can expect a close season this time around.
