RCB in IPL 2023: Rajat Patidar ruled out of entire season of IPL 2023 season

The Madhya Pradesh batter Rajat Patidar was recently expected to be ready to play for RCB at some point this season, but they have now been dealt a devastating blow. Last season, Patidar, who was brought in as a replacement player, had a significant effect, scoring 333 runs at a strike rate of over 150.

Rajat Patidar’s season-long absence dealt Royal Challengers Bangalore a setback on Tuesday (April 4). The 29-year-old batter was receiving treatment at the NCA for an Achilles’ heel problem.

Last year, he won the Eliminator with fantastic ton and was also in excellent condition during the domestic season. In their first game of the season, RCB had wicketkeeper-batter Dinesh Karthik leave at No. 3 due to Patidar’s absence, but he is expected to continue as a finisher moving forward.
