5. Vijaykumar Vyshak

The author suggests that Vyshak’s outstanding form could make him an exciting prospect for the Rajasthan Royals in the upcoming IPL 2023. The team may consider adding him to their squad to strengthen their bowling attack.
4. Vasuki Koushik
Vasuki Koushik’s exceptional performance in the T20 circuit, particularly in List-A matches and T20 games, where he has picked up 37 and 40 wickets, respectively.

He also performed well in the Ranji Trophy 2022-23, taking 24 scalps in five matches. The author suggests that Koushik’s incredible performances make him an integral part of Karnataka’s bowling set-up and a potential target for Rajasthan Royals to acquire for the upcoming IPL 2023 season.
