Will Jacks RCB replacement

The 16th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will start on March 31. Nevertheless, even before the mega tournament started, a number of top players, like Jasprit Bumrah and Shreyas Iyer, were ruled out of the competition owing to injuries.


Will Jacks is unlikely to participate in IPL 2023 because of an injury he sustained while fielding in the second ODI against Bangladesh.

Jacks was slated to represent RCB after being purchased for 3.2 crores.

In the middle order, RCB acquired Jacks as Glenn Maxwell’s cover. Due to an injury, Maxwell was expected to miss a portion of the season and was unable to participate in the recently finished Test series between Australia and India.

However, the all-rounder is part of the Australian team for their upcoming ODI series in India, which gets underway on Friday.

RCB will play its first game of IPL 2023 against Mumbai Indians at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on April 2.

Know the top 3 players who can be targeted by RCB to replace Will Jacks.

Dasun Shanaka is a fantastic IPL candidate and might take Will Jacks’s place in IPL 2023.

He will be an excellent addition to the RCB squad and can bat and bowl as Jacks.

In particular, in India, Dasun Shanaka is in incredible shape. The Sri Lankan captain has the necessary experience to provide the RCB’s lower middle order the additional power they need.

He can also bowl a few overs with the ball, too. Shanaka might therefore have been a good option.
