RCB’s strength will increase
With the arrival of Hazlewood, the strength of RCB will definitely increase. Hazlewood of Australia is counted among the best bowlers of the present time. RCB’s bowling will be strengthened by his arrival. He can trouble the best batsmen with his bowling. Last year also he played for RCB and managed to take 20 wickets in 12 matches. If we look at his IPL career so far, this right-arm bowler has played 24 IPL matches and has taken 32 wickets.
Hazlewood is the third number bowler in the ICC T20 rankings. At the same time, he is at number one in the ODI rankings. That is, Hazlewood does wonders in limited overs and RCB can get the benefit of this.
Hoff makes his much awaited #IPL2023 debut tonight! 🔥

Danger for KL Rahul!
Hazlewood’s arrival may pose a threat to Lucknow Super Giants captain KL Rahul. Hazlewood is known for hunting with the new ball. The bigger the batsman in front of him, the more dangerous he becomes. Hazlewood also swings the ball and he also has good speed. In such a situation, with the new ball, he can become a threat to KL Rahul, who is struggling for runs.
His effort will be to stop Kyle Meyers as well. Meyers is playing in stormy style this season. He scores runs very fast. Hazlewood’s job will be to control Meyers.
