IPL 2021 – RCB recruit Scott Kuggeleijn as replacement for Kane Richardson


The New Zealand allrounder had been with the Mumbai Indians as a reserve bowler

Scott Kuggeleijn, the New Zealand fast-bowling allrounder, has been recruited by the Royal Challengers Bangalore as replacement for Kane Richardson, the Australian fast bowler who left for home along with Adam Zampa on Monday. Kuggeleijn was part of the Mumbai Indians’ reserves till Tuesday.

Keeping in mind the travel restrictions during the pandemic, the IPL has allowed teams to release their reserve players as required. With Richardson’s exit, the Royal Challengers were left with three overseas fast-bowling options in their ranks, Kyle Jamieson and Australian allrounders Daniel Sams and Dan Christian.
