New Delhi: Royal Challengers Bangalore have announced the players’ replacement for the second half of the Indian Premier League 2021. The franchise announced the unavailability of Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa, Fin Allen and Daniel Sams. The Australian duo of Richardsson and Zampa also left the first half of the IPL 2021 midway due to bio-bubble fatigue.

RCB replaced leg-spinner Zampa with Sri Lanka’s star all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga who produced stellar performances in the recently concluded series against India. The right-arm leg break spinner claimed 7 wickets in three matches against India at an economy rate of 5.58. Hasaranga is currently ranked second in the ICC T20 bowling rankings which makes him a valuable addition to the RCB unit.

RCB will resume their IPL 2021 campaign against Kolkata Knight Riders on September 20. The Virat Kohli-led side enjoyed success in the first half of the season as they currently stand at the third spot on the points table with five wins in seven matches.
