Royal Challengers Bangalore
The Sri Lankan set of Waninfu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera, in addition to Australia's Singapore-born Tim David, have joined Royal Challengers Bangalore for the second part of IPL 2021.The second leg of the IPL will commence in the UAE on September 19. RCB will proceed with their season on September 20, against the Kolkata Knight Riders. Some players will be missed too: New Zealanders Finn Allen and Scott Kuggeleiin, and the Australians Kane Richardson, Daniel Sams and Adam Zampa. "Some significant changes in our playing squad, from an overseas perspective, due to player unavailability and, indeed, a reshaping of our overseas contingent,"
On Saturday Hesson elucidated in a press interaction “Finn Allen and Scott Kuggeleijn have been selected for New Zealand tours, and they won't be part of RCB. Kane Richardson has made himself unavailable, as has Daniel Sams, so the balance of our squad has changed dramatically. So we have obviously gone about making purchases during the replacement window, which opened up about four or five days ago. A lot of preparation has gone into that.""One thing we can say is we have replaced Adam Zampa with Wanindu Hasaranga.
Certainly delighted to have Hasaranga on board," Hesson said. "He gives us some balance, obviously from a wrist pin point of view and also plenty of batting capability."Chameera was also one of the wickets in his second coming to international cricket with a bag full of wickets in England in June and then at home to India. For David, in addition to being one of the Big Bash League runs, he had a good sense of subcontinent conditions during his time with the Lahore Qalandars, completing 180 runs at an average of 45 and a pass rate of 166.66 in PSL 2021“Chameera, another [from] the Sri Lankan contingent, is bowling extremely well at the moment. I know him well, having coached against him. He's got genuine pace and also his white-ball game has developed significantly over the last few years," Hesson said. "With Finn Allen leaving,
We have decided to strengthen our middle-order possibilities, in terms of options, so Tim David has joined our squad."He is currently part of the Southern Brave [at the Hundred], he has been performing for Surrey and also Hobart Hurricanes in recent times - a power player who could become a straight swap for either [Glenn] Maxwell or AB de Villiers if required, also gives us other options throughout the order."We also have one [more] spot to fill, which we will be looking to do in the coming days. Yeah, it's been a busy period of time to be able to get that squad together, but delighted with the group we've got. Wanindu, Chameera and Tim David are certainly some high-quality players that will add to the likes of AB de Villiers, Glenn Maxwell, Kyle Jamieson and Daniel Christian. So that's seven of our eight overseas contingent."
