New Delhi: IPL 2023 is a bit different in many ways. There are many reasons for this. Like- Impact player. Being the longest of this season etc. Similarly, this season has also witnessed the strong comeback of ‘PAK’. Here PAK does not mean the short form of Pakistan but three players. The P in ‘PAK’ stands for Piyush Chawla. A stands for Amit Mishra and K stands for Kedar Jadhav.
Among these three players, Kedav Jadhav is the newest entry in IPL 2023. Royal Challengers Bangalore have added him in place of David Willey. He has been with the team since the last RCB match in Lucknow, so he hasn’t got a chance to play yet.

38-year-old Jadhav has been joined by RCB for Rs 1 crore. He was also a part of IPL last season but then he did not get a chance to play a single match. Apart from this, he remained unsold in the IPL 2023 auction. This is the second time Jadhav has become a part of RCB.

Amit Mishra is also seen playing IPL after 4 years
Amit Mishra and Piyush Chawla have also seen the return of IPL 2023. But the condition of these two is different from that of Kedar Jadhav. Both Amit Mishra and Piyush Chawla have been bought by the teams in the IPL auction.
Amit Mishra was bought by Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2023 auction at his base price i.e. Rs 50 lakhs. Mishra has returned to IPL after 4 years through this season. Earlier he was seen playing in IPL 2019.
The amazing thing is that Lucknow Super Giants’ bet on Mishra is also working for them. He has taken 6 wickets in 6 matches played so far in IPL 2023. During this, his economy has been 7.26.
Chawla ruled out of IPL 2022 MI’s successful bowler this season
The story of Piyush Chawla’s strong comeback in IPL is similar to that of Amit Mishra. He was out from IPL 2022. But for IPL 2023, Mumbai Indians placed a bet on him and added Rs 50 lakh to himself at his base price. The effect of that decision of the Mumbai franchise is now that Piyush Chawla has emerged as the most successful bowler of his team this season. He has 13 wickets in 8 matches played so far.
