IPL 2023 injury list: List of players who will miss the Indian Premier League due to injury – Wisden

The 2023 Indian Premier League is set to get underway later this month, with players from all around the world gearing up for the annual competition – here is the full IPL 2023 injured list, with all the players confirmed to be sitting out this year’s tournament.
Several players have already been ruled out of the league, which begins on March 31 with reigning champions Gujarat Titans taking on Chennai Super Kings.
The latest player confirmed to be unavailable is Jhye Richardson, who has undergone surgery in an attempt to combat his ongoing hamstring issues. The fast-bowler had been due to join Mumbai Indians for the first time, he previously represented Punjab Kings in 2021. Mumbai bought Richardson for INR 1.5 crore.
It is still not clear whether Jonny Bairstow will be fit in time to play in for Punjab Kings. Bairstow underwent surgery after suffering multiple fractures to his fibula following a freak golfing accident in September, missed England’s victorious T20 World Cup campaign, and is yet to play cricket since then. While the ECB’s timeline previously suggested he might be fit for the IPL, it remains to be seen whether his recovery will allow him to do so.
Jasprit Bumrah has also been ruled out of the league as he continues to recover from an ongoing back injury. He underwent surgery in New Zealand in early March and is hopeful to return to professional cricket in time for India’s home World Cup challenge later this year. He is another of Mumbai Indians’ fast-bowling contingent they will be without.
Others set to miss the tournament include Prasidh Krishna, Rishabh Pant and Kyle Jamieson. While players like Anrich Nortje and David Warner are currently sitting out international cricket with injuries, their availability for the tournament is still unconfirmed.
