Rajat Patidar also scored a century last season

The information about the injury of a promising player who performed brilliantly for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in IPL 2022 came to light late on Saturday night. The RCB team was already under tension due to Josh Hazlewood’s injury and Glenn Maxwell not being fully fit, that now the injury of this player has troubled the team a lot. Let us tell you that the right-handed batsman Rajat Patidar, who made a splash with the bat in the last season, has come to know about the injury in the heel. he/she is currently undergoing rehab at the National Cricket Academy (NCA) in Bengaluru and may be asked to rest for the next three weeks.

That is, if Patidar takes this much time, then he/she can miss many matches in the first half of the upcoming season. According to a report in ESPN Cricinfo, Rajat Patidar is currently undergoing rehab at the NCA and has been advised rest for the next three weeks. This will be followed by an MRI scan which will decide his/her playing or not playing in the second half of the tournament. It has also been learned in this report that Patidar was injured before joining the camp with RCB. Now before joining the team, he/she has to get the approval of NCA.

Tension will increase for RCB

The injury of this brilliant 29-year-old batsman has not only increased the tension of RCB, but has also forced the team to do its planning afresh. RCB is one team which already does not have a very stable middle order. If Virat Kohli and captain Faf du Plessis open, then the responsibility of the middle order falls on the most Patidar and then Dinesh Karthik, who plays in the lower order. Now when Patidar will not be in the team, it will create a lot of problem in making the team balance. However, this time Finn Allen is also present with the team, so in such a situation, Virat can take care of the middle order and Allen and Faf can play the opening partnership.

Significantly, Rajat Patidar was not bought in the mega auction for IPL 2022. he/she joined the team after RCB’s young uncapped player Lavnith Sisodia was injured. he/she was added in the middle of the season and last year also he/she did not play in the first half. After this, when he/she came into the team, he/she scored 333 runs in just seven innings at a strike rate of 152.75. he/she also scored a brilliant century. The effect of his/her performance was such that he/she was also included in the squad of Team India. However, Patidar is yet to get a chance to make his/her international debut.
