Mukesh and Mohsin’s IPL 2023 participation uncertain amidst doubts
Two rookie left-arm pacers who punched above their weight in the Indian Premier League the previous season had their misfortune attributed to a cursed coincidence, as someone put it. Mukesh Choudhary and Mohsin Khan, two young left-arm seamers, may not be able to participate in the forthcoming IPL 2023 owing to injury. For INR 20 lacs apiece, Mukesh and Mohsin were selected by the Chennai Super Kings and Lucknow Super Giants, respectively, prior to the auction the year before. They all received positive feedback for their performances, including the reviewers and pundits. While they are in continuous contact with their franchises and even practice with them this time around, they are both battling against the clock to get well because they are both now recovering from ailments.
Mukesh is currently training at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) and receiving treatment due to a back problem that he currently has. I’m well and hope to get better soon, he responded when questioned about his involvement. While Mohsin is working out with the Lucknow team, he will probably watch games from the sidelines for a significant portion of the year. Kasi Viswanathan of Chennai Super Kings said that while they are waiting for Mukesh to get back to full fitness, they are not placing a lot of trust in him. With 16 wickets in 13 games the previous season, it’s safe to say that Mukesh, 26, was Chennai’s go-to bowler. He was terrific with the new ball, but he also offered hints as to what he might be able to do with the old ball by delivering effective wide Yorkers.
“We are anticipating Mukesh, but our expectations are low. He was a mainstay of our bowling squad the previous season. It will be sad if he chooses not to participate “CSK CEO Kasi Viswanathan. Also highlighted was Mukesh, a seaman from Uttar Pradesh who is 24 years old, particularly for the contributions he provided. Because to his pace, angle, and variations, the lanky fast bowler was lethal against any batsman in this format.
During his nine IPL games last season, the 24-year-old speedster from Uttar Pradesh named Moshin took 14 wickets with an extremely outstanding economy rate of under six (5.97). He was a standout player for the Super Giants, who managed to reach the playoffs in their inaugural season. At the mid-league stage, his timely goals against Punjab Kings (3/24) and Delhi Capitals (4/16) in back-to-back games enhanced LSG’s position in the points table, with the latter effort garnering him the MoM award.
Mukesh and Mohsin have added their names to a long list of athletes who will either miss the entire season or are questionable. Players like Lockie Ferguson and Shreyas Iyer are among those who are questionable for a few games, whilst Kyle Jamieson, Jasprit Bumrah, and Rishabh Pant are among those who will miss the entire season due to injury.The Indian Premier League’s 16th season kicks off on March 31.
