The excitement for the upcoming TATA IPL 2023 season has been on the rise for fans and players alike, but it seems like injuries are once again a major concern for teams as they prepare for the tournament.
The latest names added to the list of injured players are domestic Indian left-arm pacers Mukesh Choudhary from the Chennai Super Kings and Mohsin Khan from the Lucknow Super Giants. Both the pacers are likely to miss out on the TATA IPL 2023 due to their injuries.
CSK Mainstay Mukesh Choudhary May Sit Out IPL 2023 Due to Injury
Mukesh Choudhary, who was one of the key bowlers for CSK in the previous season, has been struggling with a back injury for some time now. The team management is closely monitoring his situation but is not very hopeful of his participation in the tournament.
A CSK official commented on Choudhary’s injury, saying, “We’re waiting on Mukesh Choudhary, but we don’t have much hope. He was one of our bowling mainstays last year. It will be unfortunate if he misses out.”
Choudhary played a vital role for the CSK team in the last season in the absence of Deepak Chahar. He managed to pick up 16 wickets in 13 games, and his performance was praised by the team management and fans alike. The pacer had formed a good partnership with MS Dhoni behind the stumps, and his absence will undoubtedly be a blow for the team.

LSG Pacer Mohsin Khan in Doubt for IPL 2023 Due to Injury
On the other hand, Mohsin Khan, who was in contention for the national team after his impressive performance in the previous season, is also nursing an injury. He picked up 14 wickets for LSG in the last season, and his pace had impressed everyone. However, the pacer is currently with the LSG team, but his presence on the field is still in doubt.
Both the players are expected to miss out on the first few games of the TATA IPL 2023, and Choudhary’s recovery may take some time, which could make him miss out on the entire tournament. Mohsin, however, has a chance of returning towards the end of the tournament, but it all depends on his recovery progress.
Injuries are always a major concern for teams, and they can significantly impact their performance in the tournament. In the last season, several key players missed out on the tournament due to injuries, and their absence affected the team’s performance. This season, with the tournament being played in a different format and more teams added to the mix, the stakes are even higher.
The Chennai Super Kings will undoubtedly feel the absence of Choudhary, who was one of their main bowlers in the last season. With his absence, CSK will have to rely heavily on Deepak Chahar and other bowlers to step up their game. The Lucknow Super Giants, on the other hand, will be hoping that Mohsin recovers in time and makes his way back to the team towards the end of the tournament.
The TATA IPL 2023 is just around the corner, and the teams are leaving no stone unturned in their preparation. The injuries to Choudhary and Mohsin are certainly not ideal, but the teams will have to find a way to cope with their absence. It remains to be seen how these injuries will affect the teams’ performances and whether they will be able to bounce back from them.
The tournament promises to be an exciting one, and fans all over the world are eagerly waiting for it to start. The TATA IPL 2023 is set to kick off on March 31, with the first match scheduled between the Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
