RCB add Hasaranga, Chameera, and Tim David to IPL 2021 roster

Royal Challengers Bangalore announced three changes to the squad for the second half of the tournament, set to resume on September 19

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have made three additions to the squad for the remainder of the Indian Premier League season, set to take place from September 19 in Dubai. While Australia’s Adam Zampa has been ruled out of the competition, Sri Lankan leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga, who had impressed in the Indian series last month, has been picked as the replacement. Sri Lanka’s Dushmantha Chameera replaced Daniel Sams of Australia, taking Sri Lanka's representation in the tournament to two. 

Tim David, whose rich vein of T20 form made him a prominent figure on the circuit, has come in as a replacement for New Zealand’s Finn Allen, who had earlier replaced the Australian Josh Phillippe. 

Talking about the changes in the team, Mike Hesson – Director of Cricket Operations, Royal Challengers Bangalore, said, “We have made some changes to the squad pertaining to the situation. We have come a long way and have shown steady progress as a team. The addition of Wanindu Hasaranga, Tim David, and Dushmantha Chameera couldn’t have come at a better time in the replacement window, as we aim to continue with the momentum, building on our performance from earlier this year.”

Hasaranga is one of the impressive young spinners in the world at the moment and in the recently-concluded India series, the leggie picked up 10 wickets from five games and played a huge role in Sri Lanka securing a T20 series victory. Chameera picked up four wickets in the T20I series against India but never conceded more than 6 runs an over in any of the games. Singapore-born Australian all-rounder Tim David, on the other hand, has quite an unusual career. While he caught everyone's attention during the PSL, his exploits in the Royal London Cup were extraordinary, making the franchise take the decision to add him.
