Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Faf du Plessis will not be fielding for his side during the IPL 2023 clash against Punjab Kings, with former skipper Virat Kohli leading the lines for the Bangalore-based outfit. The Proteas star, who picked up an injury during the game against Chennai Super Kings, will be batting for his side as an Impact player.

“Faf potentially can’t be fielding today, so he’ll be playing as a impact player, switching with Vyshak. We got to do what we wanted, we would have batted first, the pitch could get slow, some scruff marks will help the bowlers going deep into the game. Taking one game at a time, focussing on our own game, make the most of crunch situations, we haven’t done that so far in the tournament,” Kohli said at the toss.
