The fiery English batter, Will Jacks has been reportedly ruled out of the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. He was roped in by the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the auction last year for INR 3.2 crore. Jacks sustained a muscle injury during the ODI series against Bangladesh while fielding. The scans arrived earlier last week and after having consulted with specialists, the cricketer was forced to pull out of the IPL.

Meanwhile, according to a report in ESPNCricinfo, it is understood that RCB is having a discussion with the Kiwi all-rounder Michael Bracewell as the potential replacement for Will Jacks. Bracewell was a part of the auction that took place in December last year but had gone unsold at the base price of INR 1 crore.
