IPL 2023: Sam Billings opts out of the league, Read to know why?

KKR suffered a major blow as wicket-keeper batter Sam Billings has opted out of the IPL 2023. England’s star player had said that he wants to focus on playing Test cricket for England. Billings took to Instagram to share his decision through a heartfelt post thereby thanking KKR for all the memories they have given to the wicket0keeper batter. Billings also said that he hopes that he will soon play for KKR in the IPL.

With Sam Billings opting out of IPL 2023, KKR will now have to search for another wicketkeeper batter who can represent the franchise in IPL 2023. Notably other than Billings, Sheldon Jackson is the other designated wicket-keeper in the team who could take his place. But KKR might want to strengthen their side by including one more competent player in their lineup during IPL 2023 mini-auctions slated on December 23 in Kochi.

Billings is a renowned name in England’s Domestic T20 Format. Because of his stardom & his good name in the T20 format, KKR bought his services for 2 crores in IPL 2021 auctions. However, he couldn’t do much for the team & was able to amass 169 runs in eight matches played during IPL 2022 at a poor average of 24.14.

Overall, Sam Billings has played 30 matches in the IPL & has scored 503 runs at an average of 19.35. He has featured for franchises like Delhi Capitals, Chennai Super Kings, Kolkata Knight Riders & Delhi Dardevils in IPL. Currently, under the guidance of Ben Stokes & Head Coach Brendon McCullum, Billings is now getting opportunities to feature in England’s Test team.

Sunil Narine, Andre Russell, Varun Chakravarthy, Shreyas Iyer, Pat Cummins, Nitish Rana, Sheldon Jackson, Rinku Singh, Umesh Yadav

Possible Released Players:

Shivam Mavi, Mohammad Nabi, Chamika Karunaratne, Ramesh Kumar, Ajinkya Rahane, Aaron Finch, Pat Cummins
