A middle-order batsman and an occasional off-spinner from Punjab, Gurkeerat Singh Mann made his IPL debut in 2012 for Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings). In only his second innings, he showed great maturity by smashing an unbeaten 29 in 12 balls, taking on the might of Dale Steyn, to help finish off a run-chase.
Gurkeerat was picked by the Royal Challengers Bangalore. In 2019, he was signed as a replacement for the injured Rinku Singh by the Kolkata Knight Riders.
The New Zealand pacer Tim Southee will be a replacement for Australia's Pat Cummins, who pulled out of the league due to "personal reasons".
