In India earlier this year IPLsuspended after 2021 had gone. With the rise in Covid-19 cases, the league is set to resume in the UAE from 19 September. But due to various reasons, many foreign players will not be available in the second leg of the tournament. Now the teams have come forward and announced the replacement of foreign stars.
RCB, who had done well so far, have included Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga in place of Australia’s Adam Zampa. Hasranga was the star cast for Lanka in the recently concluded series against India. The other replacements for RCB are Dushmantha Chameera for Daniel Sams, left-arm pacer George Garten for Kane Richardson and Tim David for New Zealand’s Finn Allen.
Jos Buttler’s unavailability for RR means he has gone with New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman Glenn Phillips as the replacement. Phillips has played 25 T20Is so far and has 506 runs to his name. He has scored one hundred and 2 fifties and his strike rate is 149.70.
Meanwhile, South Africa’s Tabrez Shamsi will replace Andrew Tye in the Rajasthan Royals squad.
PBKS have signed Australian fast bowler Nathan Ellis for Riley Meredith. Ellis was recently in the limelight after her hat-trick on her international debut against Bangladesh earlier this month. The right-arm pacer is also one of the reserve players in Australia’s 2021 T20I World Cup squad. PBKS have also picked up England leg-spinner Adil Rashid in place of Jhye Richardson.
KKR have included Tim Southee in the team. The veteran New Zealand pacer will replace Pat Cummins of Australia.
