IPL 2024: Three bowlers who can replace Prasidh Krishna in RR squad

Rajasthan Royals' paceman Prasidh Krishna has been ruled out of IPL 2024.

Prasidh Krishna has been ruled out of the upcoming edition of the IPL 2024 tournament, the BCCI confirmed in a recent press release. The right-arm fast bowler didn’t feature for Rajasthan Royals (RR) in IPL 2023 due to an injury.

Despite not marking his presence, the franchise still retained him. Prasidh Krishna underwent surgery last month for his quadriceps injury. He is being monitored by the BCCI medical team and will soon begin his rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru.

As a result, he will not be able to take part in the upcoming edition of the IPL. Rajasthan Royals haven’t named the replacement yet but they will target the talented bowling prospects who went unsold in this year’s auction.

For the record, the 24-year-old has been with KKR since 2018 but got a chance to make his IPL debut in 2020. He made 10 appearances in that season, taking 5 wickets to his name. Kamlesh played two games since then, making his presence once in 2021 and 2022.
