IPL 2023: Kedar Jadhav joins RCB squad, replaces David Willey
In the ongoing IPL 2023, Royal Challengers Bangalore are set to face Lucknow Super Giants in the 43rd match on Monday. Ahead of the game, England star all-rounder David Willey has been replaced by Kedar Jadhav for the remainder of the season RCB.
Jadhav has been bagged by RCB for Rs 1 crore. He made his IPL debut with Delhi Daredevils in 2010, he has so far played 93 IPL games and scored 1196 runs. Jadhav played for RCB in 17 matches during the 2016-17 season and was later bought by Chennai Super Kings.
Jadhav represented Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 2021 edition of the tournament. He remained unsold in the auctions for the next two seasons. On the other hand, Willey played four matches for RCB this season and scalped three wickets.
The reason for Willey missing the remaining matches is due to a fractured toe and adductor strain. Willey was picked by RCB in the 2022 mega auction for Rs 2 crore. In the 3 IPL matches played between both teams so far, RCB have won 2 matches against LSG who have won 1 match. In the previous game, LSG snatches the win from RCB’s jaw. RCB will want to bounce back and win the next game.
