Probable Best Bowler
In the ongoing IPL 2023, Mohit Sharma has claimed eight wickets and maintained an impressive economy rate in all six matches played so far. The Royals will have to exercise caution against this seasoned and cunning bowler, who will undoubtedly be eager to add more wickets to his tally.
