No specific timeline has been put on 27-year-old Jamieson’s recovery. Blackcaps head coach Gary Stead hoped the operation and necessary rehabilitation would serve him well in the long term.

Prasidh Krishna

Prasidh Krishna, who was bought by the Rajasthan Royals for INR 10 crore in the IPL 2022 Mega auction and retained ahead of the next season, will miss IPL 2023 due to an injury. It also puts him in considerable doubt for the 50-over World Cup at home this October-November

Prasidh Krishna has been undergoing rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru since his back injury last September. Initially, he was working towards a full recovery in time for the Ranji Trophy knockouts in January-February. However, the injury has not healed sufficiently, and as a result, the NCA and Rajasthan Royals’ medical staff, who have been closely coordinating, have recommended surgery.

Krishna’s impressive performances prior to his injury had caught the attention of national selectors, who saw him as a potential game-changer in the middle overs of ODIs, thanks to his height, pace, and hard lengths. This was also a significant factor in the Royals’ decision to spend INR 10 crore (approximately USD 1.3 million at the time) to acquire him, making him the third-costliest signing among fast bowlers ahead of the 2022 IPL season.

Jhye Richardson

Jhye Richardson is a talented Australian fast bowler known for his impressive pace and ability to swing the ball. He was recently bought by the Mumbai Indians in the IPL auction for his base price of INR 1.50 crores, despite concerns over his fitness.


Richardson has been struggling with hamstring issues for some time now, and has been forced to miss several matches due to injury. He was also ruled out of the ODI series against India due to his fitness issues.

Despite these concerns, Richardson is still highly regarded as a fast bowler and has a good track record in T20 cricket. In the last season of the IPL, he played for the Punjab Kings and managed to take three wickets in three matches.

Will Jacks

Will Jacks was indeed bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for INR 3.20 crores in the IPL 2023 Auction, but unfortunately, he has had to withdraw from the tournament due to a muscle injury that he sustained while fielding in England’s recent victory over Bangladesh in their second ODI in Mirpur.

Jacks had a breakthrough winter with England, earning caps in all three international formats and impressing with his performances. He was expected to bring a dynamic skill set to the RCB squad and potentially provide cover for Glenn Maxwell in the middle order. However, his injury has ruled him out of the tournament, making him the fourth player to withdraw from the IPL 2023.

While it is unfortunate for Jacks and RCB, the team will have to look for other options to fill the void left by his absence. The IPL is a long tournament and injuries are a common occurrence, so RCB will have to ensure they have a strong and deep squad to cope with any such setbacks.

Shreyas Iyer

Unfortunately, KKR’s captain, Shreyas Iyer, will not be able to participate in the upcoming IPL 2023 and the World Test Championship 2021-23 final due to a persistent back injury. Despite being signed for a whopping Rs 12.25 crore in the previous year’s mega auction, Iyer’s recurring lower back issue has forced him to undergo surgery.

Initially, there were reports of Iyer missing the first few matches of the IPL 2023 due to his back injury, but now it appears that he will have to take a longer break, with a recovery period estimated to be at least four to five months. This is a significant blow to both KKR and the Indian team, as Iyer’s presence will surely be missed on the field.
