The Rajasthan franchise of the Indian T20 League has faced a big gust as premier pacer Prasidh Krishna will not be a part of the Rajasthan squad for the entire season of the Indian T20 League 2023. The Karnataka bowler sustained a lumbar stress fracture due to which he will not appear in either of the matches of the 16th season of the cash-rich Indian T20 tournament.
Notably, Krishna was one of the prominent deals Rajasthan happened to seal during last year’s mega auction for the 2022 edition of the tournament. He also played a crucial role in helping his team to reach the final of the tournament; where they lost to the new entrants Gujarat.
Coming back to Prasidh Krishna, the team would definitely look ahead to replace the 27-year-old with a better option of a pacer; who can become a part of the squad in ITL 2023.
With said that, here we’ll have a look at the three pacers who could replace Prasidh Krishna in the Rajasthan squad for the Indian T20 League 2023.
The senior Mumbai pacer Dhawal Kulkarni has been very brilliant in the recently-concluded Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2022. Kulkarni bowled very economically while playing for Mumbai in the domestic T20 tournament scalping four wickets.
Apart from this, the 34-year-old veteran has a very good career of 92 matches in the Indian T20 League scalping 86 wickets including a best figure of 4/14. Considering his experience, Dhawal Kulkarni could be a good option to replace the void created by the absence of Prasidh Krishna.
