The RCB squad will miss the likes of Adam Zampa, Daniel Sams, Finn Allen, Kane Richardson and Washington Sundar who, for varied reasons, were unable to join in the second leg of IPL 2021 in UAE. The team will however see some bright new faces like Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, Tim David, George Garton and Akash Deep as their replacements.

In a video posted by the RCB franchise on Monday, captain Kohli said, “I have been in touch with everyone. We have had discussions over the last month or so, a little longer with that with the replacements and who’s coming, who’s not. Eventually, we ended up replacing our key players with some top-quality cricketers.”

He added, “Our key players will be missed and they are a part of the family. But the people coming in have some great skillsets, especially in these conditions. I am very excited to see them with the whole group at practice and very excited to resume a very good season that we started last time around.”

Kohli also said he is excited to be moving into the T20 format of the game again for the next month and a half and said, “Heading into the T20 phase, I think it is going to be a very exciting phase and every important one for us at RCB and then for the Indian team in the World Cup as well.”
