But.. with the Ashes series this year, Bairsto hopes to be fully fit for that series time. With that, there are reports that it has been decided to stay away from IPL 2023. But there is no official announcement yet. While the IPL 2023 matches will start from March 31, Punjab Kings will clash with Kolkata Knight Riders in their first match on April 1.
Jonny Bairstow, who was ruled out of the series against Pakistan and New Zealand due to a leg injury, also underwent surgery. Doctors also fitted a metal plate in his leg. However, he recovered quickly and was recently seen hitting the ball hard in the nets. But Bairstow feels that if he plays in the IPL without 100% recovery, there is a risk of the injury reversing. With that, Punjab started hunting for a player to replace him.
Jonny Bairstow, who has played 39 matches in the IPL so far, has scored 1291 runs with a strike rate of 142.65. It includes a century and 9 half-centuries. Also, Jonny Bairstow hit 133 fours and 55 sixes. Jonny Bairstow is playing in IPL since 2019.
