Many players have performed strongly in IPL 2023, but especially some anonymous players have told this season that old is gold. Ajinkya Rahane, Piyush Chawla, Mohit Sharma are such names which are discussed everywhere. But some other names have come to the fore this season whose sinking careers have got a new lease of life from the IPL. Ishant Sharma, Amit Mishra, Sandeep Sharma are also included in this list. Rahane got so much benefit that once again he returned to the Indian team. On the other hand, Mohit Sharma gave the team two great victories as soon as he arrived and became the player of the match both times.
In the current edition of the Indian Premier League, old stalwarts like Ajinkya Rahane, Piyush Chawla and Mohit Sharma have proved the point right with their stellar performances. Before the start of the season, no one was giving importance to these players, but now they have become an important link of their respective teams with their brilliant performance. Mohit was the net bowler for Gujarat Titans last year. This year he has taken six wickets in four matches. He has also received player of the match awards on two occasions. He has become the preferred bowler in the death overs for skipper Hardik Pandya.
