3 genuine wicket-keepers in IPL 2023 who can also bowl
In the current era, with so much pressure on players, it is hard to specialize in more than two departments. Especially when wicket-keeping is one of the skills you have, it becomes difficult for a player to give time to other aspects such as bowling. Anyways, for a keeper, bowling is not required. That said, when there is more than one wicketkeeper in the squad, a player might use his bowling skills so that he can contribute further to the team. There are some such players in IPL 2023. In this article, we take a look at three wicket-keepers in IPL 2023 who can also bowl.
1) Donovan Ferreira - Rajasthan Royals
The cricketer from South Africa showed his skills both with the bat and the ball in the recently held SA20. He played for the Joburg Super Kings. However, in IPL, he will represent RR. Since he also offers a bit of bowling, he can be extremely useful for the team.
2) Glenn Phillips - Sunrisers Hyderabad
Glenn Phillips has already been known as a genuine wicketkeeper who can also roll his arm over. He has done it successfully for New Zealand and the other teams he has represented. He is likely to take a spot in the SRH starting XI and if Heinrich Klaasen keeps wickets, Phillips can be used in the spin department.
3) Vishnu Vinod - Mumbai Indians
Vishnu Vinod is one of the wicket-keepers in IPL 2023 who can also bowl. Not many are aware but Vishnu Vinod from Kerala can also bowl, despite being a genuine keeper. He has done it in the past and won't be a surprise if Mumbai Indians uses it. He is also a fine backup for Ishan Kishan in the roster.
