Prasidh Krishna has been a proven performer in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He has featured in 51 matches and picked up 49 wickets at an economy of 8.92. The Bangalore-born has been phenomenal in the international arena too and bagged 25 scalps in 14 ODIs at an economy of 8.29.

Prasidh took the 2022 season of the cash-rich league by storm with his stunning bowling displays. He was Rajasthan Royals’ strike force with the ball and bagged 19 scalps in 17 matches at an economy of 8.29. His exploits with the ball were instrumental in Sanju Samson & Co. reaching the finals of the T20 extravaganza.

However, Rajasthan have suffered a body blow ahead of the IPL 2023, as Prasidh has been ruled out of the marquee tournament due to a lumber stress fracture. The ace pacer will be undergoing surgery and might even miss the 2023 World Cup, which is scheduled to kick-start in September.

With the 27-year-old unavailable for the upcoming IPL season, Rajasthan might look to include quality pacers in their ranks who could fill his boots in the team. Let us look at the players who might come as an injury-replacement for Prasidh.

Vijaykumar Vyshak is one of the exciting prospects in the Karnataka cricketing circles. He was simply magnificent in the 2022 season of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and dismantled batting line-ups that came his way. The Karnataka pacer featured in eight matches and bagged 15 wickets at an economy of 6.31.

Vyshak made the ball talk at the start of the innings and provided Karnataka with early breakthroughs. He showed his bowling might in the recently concluded Ranji Trophy 2022-23 as well and picked up 31 wickets in eight matches for Karnataka at an average of 24.58.

Vyshak has shown a lot of promise in the domestic circuit and the potential to light up IPL 2023, And given the 26-year-old is in top form, Rajasthan Royals will look to add him to their arsenal for the forthcoming edition of the cash-rich league.
